Citroen - Even Weirder Than You Thought

Tested by Citroen for use in the DS during the early 1960s, this prototype 1,800 CC supercharged two-stroke V4 had - wait for it - a separate 200 CC four-stroke driving the supercharger.

We should all be grateful it never reached series production, as the resultant car would surely have achieved a critical mass of French-ness, destroying all life on earth in a massive explosion of unnecessary complexity and willful, unbridled odd.

More prototype DS engines here.

  1. But that would be beyond awesome! Fortunately, the DS was awesome even with its mundane engines.
