Citroën SM Maserati
   
Country: France
Production Years: 1969 - 1975
Number Produced: 12,920

After 6 years of production (1969-1975) only 12,920 SM’s had been built, and unsurprisingly, there was no replacement. Citroen was never one to follow conventional wisdom. The SM incorporates Citroen’s hydra-pneumatic suspension, inboard front disc brakes, front-wheel drive, swivel headlamps, and an odd power steering set up that required drivers to re-think their steering input choices.

The Maserati derived 2.7 liter 60 degree V6 was an engineering marvel, though prone to timing chain problems. The top speed was reported to be 137 mph.
