In 1961, Citroen began work on ‘Project S’ – a sports variant of the revolutionary Citroen DS. As it was the habit of the company, it had many concept cars ongoing and the complex rising market saw the DS as a savior to the company. Citroen purchased Maserati in 1968 with the intention of harnessing Maserati’s high performance engine technology to produce a true “Gran Turismo” car, combining the sophisticated Citroen suspension with a Maserati V6 engine. This specific car belonged to a collector in South Africa and the Museum acquired it through auction in Great Britain.
