Citroen is very well-known for its innovative vehicles. From the Light 15 starting production in the mid-1930s, iconic 2CV starting in the late 40s and to the popular ‘DS’ model from the mid-1950s. The DS in particular had a production span of over 20 years and just shy of 1.5 million units built. It was acknowledged as one of the best cars in the world and named the most beautiful car of all time, by a leading classic car magazine. However, this story is about the lesser known, but closely related, ‘SM’ model. With a production run of only 13,000, it was marketed as the high-performance version of the DS and sold alongside the DS from 1970 to 1975.
