1972 - Citroën SM Maserati

Registration : Normal series French registration certificate
Chassis n° : 00SB9182

Rare two-owner car
Major mechanical components and hydraulic systems entirely overhauled in 2018
The embodiment of the French approach to GT motoring

Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1970, the SM – for Project S Maserati – made a striking debut with its innovative styling by Robert Opron. Its taut lines gave the SM an exceptionally dynamic look. Its excellent drag coefficient of 0.46 was the result of extensive wind tunnel work, which determined its overall appearance. Taking advantage of Citroën‘s takeover of Maserati in 1968, under the bonnet the SM had a completely new twin-cam V6 engine with a capacity of 2670cc bearing the trident logo. Making use of the hydropneumatic suspension from the DS, it retained the level of comfort that Citroën held dear, while the new Diravi steering with a power-assisted return mechanism made it possible to maintain high speeds with complete ease. Only 12,920 cars would be sold during the model’s five years in production. Increasingly sought after today, the SM is attracting more and more interest. The perfect blend of modernity, comfort and performance, the SM is a true GT, which is different, prestigious and stylish.

In the hands of her second owner since 1975, our Citroën SM has the highly prized specification with three Weber carburettors. She was delivered new in April 1972 wearing the striking and unusual metallic silver green shade of paint which suits the car perfectly, particularly with upholstery in black leather. She was equipped with air conditioning. The owner of a garage near Paris bought the car from the first lady owner, a client of his who found the SM too large for her. This vehicle therefore has the advantage of an exceptionally stable history. Having recently been “round the clock” the odometer reads just over 100 000 kilometres. In early 2018 a mechanical overhaul was completed, including the 2.7 litre engine, the carburettors, gearbox, clutch and starter motor. New hydropneumatic spheres and high pressure pump actuators were fitted. The brakes (calipers, discs, pads), the engine cooling system (hoses and radiator), the power steering and the swivelling headlight system were all overhauled. An entire new exhaust system in stainless steel was fitted. The interior of the car was refreshed. The leather seats, in excellent condition, and the door trim panels were treated with appropriate products and the seat fillings were renewed. A new dashboard and head lining were fitted. The bodywork had been very well repainted 30 years ago. Completely worked over to ensure reliability, this SM has much to recommend it.

Now in high demand, the SM is rarely seen on the market and is considered the ultimate expression of French automotive ‘Haute Couture’ by Citroën. Its styling and interior remain impressively modern while its mechanical reliability issues have been overcome thanks to the many SM specialists. In excellent overall condition, this SM is a great opportunity to rediscover a true GT, whose radical charm, exquisite refinement and rarity are steadily increasing the market value
