Citroën SM Opera

About this Quattro-Porte:

The Citroën SM Opera
Launched in 1972 at the Paris Motor Show, this Citroën SM Opera was constructed as a Grand Turismo in the DS Spirit, latter being a huge sales success in the previous decade. As owner of the Maserati brand and company, Citroën equipped the SM Opera with a Maserati engine. The stunning automobiles were produced starting from a complete SM which was cut in two parts. Then the body was stretched and a new rear end attached. All this, icluding the painting and interior were done by Chapron. Only eight Operas were produced between 1972 and 1974. The project was killed off because of Citroën’s bankruptcy in 1974, in which it was also forced to sell Maserati. The Maserati Quattroporte II has probably shared development with this SM Opera.
