Citroën-Maserati SMThe Citroën SM is a truly mesmerizing car that epitomizes Citroën's long tradition of innovation and disregard for convention.The SM was introduced as Citroën's flagship in 1970. The company had purchased Maserati in 1968, an important piece of Citroën's plan to build a high performance GT that was related to the DS. Citroën asked Maserati to develop a six cylinder engine, which would be used both in this car and a new small Maserati to compete with Ferrari's Dino, the Merak. The car was extraordinarily aerodynamic, with a Kamm tail, sloping roofline, and attentive streamlining, which gave the car a coefficient of drag of just .26. The front track was wider than the rear track, giving the car a tapered plan form, and the car featured disc brakes all round, which were inboard at the front to reduce unsprung weight. The height adjustable suspension was similar to that of the DS and offered an exceptional ride. The list of innovations goes on and on, with the first introductionofvariable assist power steering, automatically adjusted hydraulic brake bias based on the weight distribution of the car, and many others.This 1973 SM example we have for sale is undoubtedly one of the best in the world having just travelled only 23,668 miles and was a UK delivered car too.
