  • The most advanced automobile of its era, the Citroën SM combined the French automaker’s legendary technology with the fine performance of a Maserati Engine. The Maserati V-6 was mounted in the front of the car, situated behind the front axle predicting the "front mounted mid-engine" layout that would be utilized decades later in other super cars. With triple Weber carburetion the SM was capable of reaching 140mph! Citroën’s famous pneumatic suspension, which could be adjusted to suit the road surface, and brakes ensured a cloud-like ride and stupendous stopping power. The SM’s bodywork was so aerodynamic that rain simply slipped off the windshield with speed. The result was a superb handling, adequately powered, GT Coupe with plenty of room for four! At the time it was the fastest front-wheel-drive automobile available. When British comedian Paul Daniels was pulled over for speeding in his SM he attempted to amuse the police officer by moving the suspension lever back and forth, causing the car to move up and down, and saying, “It’s out of breath and panting.”

    Upon it's debut, the SM was adored by automotive journalists and race car drivers alike. It drew in a diverse group of personalities such as the Shah of Iran, Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I, Celebrities Cheech & Chong, "Bonanza" actor Lorne Greene, and musicians Carlos Santana and The Rolling Stones all of whom understood the appeal. Between 1970 and 1975, 12,920 were made, of which only 2,400 were originally delivered to the United States.

    This example is finished in stunning Beige Tholonet Metallic with a beautiful black interior. It has recently been serviced by a marquee specialist and is ready to drive and enjoy. This SM comes well-equipped with nearly every available option including the rare factory automatic 3-speed transmission and air conditioning as well as the original tools and jack. Ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy? According to Motortrend, the classic car market has recently shown more growth than hedge funds with projected returns of 161% after five years and a whopping 467% after a decade.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
