Cool We won't be seeing this car, but what do you suppose its cD is?

Someone's rendering of a potential modern version of the Citro?n SM:


For comparison, the original:

I remember when I first saw one of these (I think it was either in Motor Trend or Car & Driver sometime in '72) I fell in love. Couldn't afford one until the '80s, by then they were hard to find (actually, they always were) and I kept hearing rumors of problems with the Maserati engine. But I still want one...

I saw one in a Discount Tire parking lot a few months back. It sat there for a week or so, never to be seen again.
