Autoquiz 591 - Finished

Recommended Posts

This car is in principal a prototype or preproduction car like the Chrysler Turbine car. A series cars were build and sent to selected customers to test them under real day drive conditions. Usually those cars had to be scrapped after the test period is over. But like the Chrysler Turbine car a few cars weren't destroyed. And this one is one of those. It is located in Germany, registered and regularly drive to classic car shows. 

Between 1969 and 1971 Citroen wanted to build 500 cars with a single rotor engine and want to sell them to high milage drivers in France. But only 267 Citroen M35 were sold. After the the end of the test period Citroen tried to rebuy these cars but failed. Approximately 80 cars are still existing. Some in museum some on the road like this one. 

The M35 is based on the Citroen Ami 8. The chassis of the AMI 8 was modified for a hydropneumatic suspension and the Wankel engine. The engine is a cut in half 2-rotor NSU Ro80 engine which had 498 ccm and 49 hp. This car is prototype #63
