Seller Description
The Citroen SM was a high-performance coupe produced by the French manufacturer Citroen from 1970 to 1975. The SM placed third in the 1971 European Car of the Year contest, trailing its stablemate Citroen GS, and won the 1972 Motor Trend Car of the Year award in the U.S. in 1972.

Contemporary automotive journalists were most effusive about the SM's dynamic qualities, which were unlike anything they had experienced before. The SM provided a combination of comfort, sharp handling, and high performance not available in any other car at the time.

The example we have today is presented in the attractive colour combination of green with a tan interior. These models were highly sought after in their day, with the Maserati engine providing enough power to compete with other more nimble sports cars of the era at the time. They are now desirable and represent the retro side of sports car looks and ability. The acclaimed suspension system providing the incumbent with a luxurious ride at speed or in town. These were also good tourers with plenty of space for luggage and family. Not to be missed.
