1972 Citroen SM Coupe RHD For Sale

This is one of the rarest cars in the world today, I have been searvhing for one of these for about 20 years and have only ever seen 2 for sale in that period. It is a 1972 Citroen SM Coupe, Right Hand Drive, with the larger 3.0 Litre Engine and Auto Gearbox. She is finished in Dark Metallic Green with Cognac Leather Interior and is showing 48k Miles from new. It is thought less than 20 RHD examples are known to exist.

Combining Citroen's advanced chassis technology and Maserati's engine know-how, the SM (Serie Maserati) featured DS-style hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension, power-assisted disc brakes all-round, self centering rack and pinion steering with only two turns lock to lock, and most ingenuous steered headlamps. Citroen had purchased Maserati in 1968, principally to acquire the latter's engine technology for its new top of the range Gran Turismo coupe, and the Italian firm responded to the brief with remarkable speed by the simple expedient of chopping off its Indy double overhead cam, 90-degree V8 to create the required V6, the resultant capacity being 2760cc. Fitted with triple Webers, power output was quoted as 170bhp and 0-60mph took 8.3sec. The cars were later offered with a larger 3.0 litre engine also.

With Citroen being the world leader in passenger car aerodynamics, the SM's class-leading drag coefficient enabled it to reach 142mph, making it the fastest front-wheel drive production car ever at the time. Sadly for enthusiasts of the ground breaking model however, the SM was prematurely axed in 1975 following Citroen's acquisition by Peugeot. Fondly remembered, these technically advanced and functionally beautiful cars remain highly sought after today.

Our car was sold new to the USA in 1972 and, to comply with strict Australian Regulations, was converted to RHD in about 1974 for High Profile Australian Businessman and Car Racer, Laurie O'Neill, who also owned a DB4GT Zagato, and exported to Australia. The car spent most of its life in Australia until it was purchased arrived in the UK in 2012. It has remained in the same ownership since then. The car was restored in Australia in about 2000 and remains in a very good condition with only minor micro blistering to some panels. The car drives very well although has spent a few months in storage, a thorought service would benefit for daily use.

We have a service history going back to the Nineties and more recent invoices also, our car comes with a new MOT with no advisories and is ready for its new home. It will certainly be many, many years before you will see another RHD Citroen SM.
