In the late 1960s, Citroen acquired a controlling interest in the Italian sports car manufacturer Maserati. The big Citroen SM was the first fruit of this marriage (SM comes from Serie Maserati.) First shown at the Geneva Salon of March 1970 the Citroen SM was launched in France in August of the same year. The SM was Citroën’s flagship vehicle competing with other high performance GTs of the time from manufacturers such as Jaguar, Lotus and Porsche.
