Model SM - Manual Transmission Body Type Coupé Price €95.000
Make 1970-1975 Color Metallic Grey
Year 1971 Interior Brown
Specific description This exceptional car is in very “original” condition, with of course its original paint. Also the interior is 100% original and is in very good shape with a very nice patina. This SM was sold in Lyon, France and had only 1 owner from new. It is very rare to find such car in original condition with 75.000 km. It has a manual 5 speed gearbox. We have a lot of documentation of this car and even the original sales invoice dated 9/4/71. Also the original owner’s manual is included and even the spare keys. The engine has been completely overhauled in our garage and is ready for another 75.000 km. It drives today at high speed on the motorways, powered with the 6 cylinder Maserati engine of 2700cc.

Model description In 1961, Citroën began work on 'Project S' — a sports variant of the revolutionary Citroën DS. As was customary for the firm, many running concept vehicles were developed, increasingly complex and upmarket from the DS. Citroën purchased Maserati in 1968 with the intention of harnessing Maserati's high-performance engine technology to produce a true Gran Turismo car, combining the sophisticated Citroën suspension with a Maserati V6. The result was the Citroën SM, first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970. It went on sale in France in September of that year. Factory produced cars were all left-hand-drive, although RHD conversions were done in the UK and Australia. The origin of the model name 'SM' is not completely clear. The 'S' may derive from the Project 'S' designation, the aim of which was to produce what is essentially a sports variant of the Citroën DS, and the 'M' perhaps refers to Maserati, hence SM is often assumed to stand for "Systeme Maserati" or "Sports Maserati". Another common alternative is Série Maserati, but others have suggested it is short for 'Sa Majesté' (Her Majesty in French), which aligns with the common DS model's nickname 'La déesse' (The Goddess).
