I for Individuality

Road Impressions of the Panhard 24CT I for individuality is kinder to Citroën, of whom Panhard-Levassor are a subsidiary, than writing P for peculiar, although that is how many owners of conventional cars would describe this eye-catching 848-c.c. air-cooled twin-cylinder coupé. Not that this condemns it. Indeed, the main appeal of this latest Panhard model is individuality, allied to an...

November Journey

A Citroën "Big Fifteen" Proves a Thoroughly Satisfactory Family Car on a Hurried Excursion to the West Country and Wales Motoring journalists, when they are not being feasted sumptuously prior to being shown a new car or accessory for which publicity is sought (who first had the bright thought, I wonder, of "feeding the brutes" before letting them put pens to paper - or chisels to stone ?) are,...

Referred to Auto-Union!

Sir, An advertisement was recently published in your publication on behalf of Audi, the latest Mercedes product, and in it a statement appeared saying that this is the only car in the World to have inboard disc-brakes, like a racing car.

Some notes on the Citroen ID19

A Safe, Comfortable, High-Average-Speed Simplified Version of the Futuristic DS19 Saloon. I spent the latter part of the summer driving a Citroen ID19 on what might almost be described as a destruction test, for it is significant that Freddie Ridout, Publicity Manager of Citroen Cars Ltd., leaves the return of his Press cars to the discretion of the journalist, instead of limiting the test to a...

My year's motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove in 1958 I always rather enjoy writing this annual feature, if only to refresh my memory of the cars tested during the past twelve-month before embarking on a further year's road-testing for Motor Sport. As I also enjoy reading similar accounts in other journals, I assumed that readers might not take unkindly to these simple summaries. Not so!  After...

Those who "have" continue to spend and, as ever, their indulgences include fast, exotic cars, particularly and ironically the "haves" of the oil-producing Middle Eastern countries. Such extravagances ensure...

Rumblings

Pneumatic Suspension Citroën are famous as builders of family cars which satisfy the enthusiast. Rumours float around of an entirely new model, which are discounted by the steady flow of the familiar four and six-cylinder models from the Slough and Paris factories. But they have not been idle in the Citroën design Office, for a revolutionary new system of pneumatic suspension at the back of the...
