The Citroen SM makes a lot of lists. You’ll find it on lists of the most beautiful cars ever made, but you’ll also find it on lists of the oddest cars ever made, or the most ridiculously overcomplicated cars ever made (cf. hydropneumatic everything, Maserati engine). Either way it’s the definition of the word iconic. I spotted this particular SM as it was leaving the show field at the Concours of America. Though the SM came in a variety of colors, you don’t often see green ones, the usual color being a beige gold. The owner was nice enough to pose for one of the photos but they were in a hurry to load up the car so I was only able to get a small number of photos of this spectacular car. Fortunately, though, there’s a car enthusiast who lives not far from me who has a couple of Citroen SMs in his collection, a parts car, and the car for which that donor is used to keep running, so I’m was able to get a few more shots that capture the unique shapes of the SM. For more information on the Citroen SM, check out Ate Up With Motor’s typically outstanding history of this singular automobile.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
