Citroen Mehari 1978
The Citroen Mehari, recovered from a long outdoor abandonment and a probable destruction has been totally reconstructed, the restoration has shown that it is a piece among the first products by Citroen. Respecting the colours and the original features, the car has been recomposed with all the new shells in orange fusion colours, while the engine and all the mechanisms have been totally restored by enthusiasts and connoisseurs of the unusual Citroen technical and construction techniques. Fortunately, all the pertinent documentation, including the original plate, was recovered. Recognized of historical and collecting interest, it is registered in the historical automotor club.
The car takes its name from a renowned race of south Arabian dromedaries used for racing known for its resistance to fatigue and great running qualities.
Born from the Citroen idea to create a light, spartan and multifunctional vehicle. The base is that of the already popular Dyane, all the bodywork was made with already coloured fusion plastic panels (ABS) which are very resistant , greatly reducing the weight thus making it more agile and manoeuvrable than the older sisters. The dry weight was only 475 kg, absolutely the lightest approved 4-seater car of its time.
Launched on 3 October 1968 at the Paris motor show, it immediately received great interest and production continued with few aesthetic variations over the years. There are 2 series, the first with front drum brakes and friction dampers, the second with front disc brakes and hydraulic shock absorbers. Even today it is a stainless symbol of holidays and the sea, easy to spot on the various islands for its great resistance to corrosion. Production ended in June 1987. With a production that counts 144.953 units.
