1961-1978 CITROEN Ami 6/8/Super specifications Classic and Performance Car

Citroën produced several 2CV-based cars, with the Ami being one of the more fascinating. The styling was strange even by French standards, especially the original 6 model which had a reverse-rake window emulating the Ford Anglia 105E. A bigger engine than that of the 2CV – 602cc and 20bhp – provided reasonable performance and the Ami was better-appointed inside than the 2CV too. A redesign in 1969 made the back window slope the conventional – and more boring – way, creating the Ami 8. The ultimate Ami was the Super of 1972 with the four-cylinder overhead cam engine of the GS. 61bhp in such a light car meant it was scarily fast.
