  • fdn777

  • geektoro
    geektoro 9 месяцев назад Being born European but raised in the U.S., it wasn't unusual for our parents to send us back to the old country for the summer. In '82 my dear old dad bought us a Citroen CX . During a drive we popped a tire doing 150+kph(roughly 90mph) on the highway. We had no clue until we stopped for fuel and notice the tire had a small tear. The Citroen's suspension was so good the car was balanced on 3 wheels with no lose of control.

    DAVID ALTON 4 месяца назад once sat in a new cx gti with black and white leather seats and a cxprestige  in our local dealership when they were new.never seen that quality in any car since shame about body protection.
  • Wayne Mazzola
    Wayne Mazzola 3 месяца назад @Paul H What geektoro says is true if you were ever driving in one of these and blew a tire the car is so well tuned you will not lose control of the car the suspension system compensates so quickly with the other wheels it takes almost all weight off the damaged tire and redistributes it to the others literally the safest car you can drive from the standpoint of a blown tire!!!!
  • Rui
    Rui 3 месяца назад most french cars from 90's to early 00's are had to notice a flat, my dad had a 406 blow a tire in city driving and only notice 1 km later and mostly because of the noise, that car kept handling fine, a friend in a 206 also blow the front tire at 90km/h and had all the time of the world to stop the car safely and had no lose of control...
  • musamor75
    musamor75 2 месяца назад @Richard P Rightly so my good man. Did you know that it's the Citroën firm that provides the suspension for Rolls Royce, and has always done? Just as RR provides the motors for Boing.
  • Stephen Chambers
    Stephen Chambers 2 месяца назад @Paul H That's funny, sort of...
  • patmowag41
    patmowag41 2 месяца назад @Paul H You don't understand. The hydropneumatic suspension system was so good that the puncture would be un-noticable on a straight road until the tyre started to break up.
  • Paul H
    Paul H 2 месяца назад @Rui Interesting. I would have never guessed that the ugliest car in the world would be the best balanced car in the world.
  • Vincent Ingram
    Vincent Ingram 1 месяц назад @Paul H Any other car would have been careening all over the road, except for the DS and SM which also use the same suspension. You notice a flat on a normal car because the suspension cannot adjust to it. These cars do. In fact the favourite 'party trick' is to take one rear wheel off entirely and drive it on 3 wheels only. Try that in your F100..
  • Jesuscger
    Jesuscger 1 месяц назад Normal thing on Citroen with hydro suspension.
  • Lux Moto
    Lux Moto 3 недели назад (изменено) @Vincent Ingram. Absolute nonsense. Last year I had a blowout rightfront with 140 km on a 4 lane highway with heavy traffic in a renault kangoo !! only thing happening was the noise, which made me slow down and told me to pull over to the emergency lane. Car handling didn't change at all. Tire was completely shred to pieces.
  • Dark Knightwing
    Dark Knightwing Неделю назад musamor75 not anymore but they certainly used to and also, Rolls Royce Motor Cars and Rolls Royce Aero Engines are completely separate companies and have been for decades. Plus, Rolls Royce Aero Engines power most jet airliners as well as boats, helicopters and some propeller planes too. Citroën only provided suspension for the Rolls Royce Silver Shadows and maybe Spirits, I can’t remember for certain.
  • Gravy Davy
    Gravy Davy Неделю назад Paul H I was with my brother in a BX going around some very sharp bends and my brother was wondering why the car behind was flashing his lights, we stopped and had a look around the car and the left rear tyre was completely flat. my brother could feel absolutely nothing wrong with the steering or handling. They were that good, you can drive on three wheels.
  • James H. Hayward
    James H. Hayward 8 месяцев назад As the original owner of a 1972 DS 21 Pallas, I was delighted to see your excellent video. There are a couple of features that were not mentioned that I feel are worth sharing. As the car was self leveling, the pressure in each suspension sphere was proportional to the weight over the associated wheel. When the brake bulb was depressed, it controlled the release of the pressure in each of the suspension spheres to the associated brake. Thus the braking force applied to each wheel was proportional to the weight over it. When the car was heavily loaded with passengers and luggage, the braking force increased to prevent nose diving.
