1971-1977 LIGIER JS2 specifications


Most people will know Ligier either for the rugby playing exploits of its creator, or through the marginal successes of its Formula 1 team. But in the early 1970s, it had brief foray into sports car manufacture – the JS2 that Guy Ligier concocted was an appealing glassfibre bodied mid-engined effort powered by the exquisite (if troublesome) V6 also found in the Citroën SM and Maserati Merak. Ligier had good access thanks to entering into a deal with Citroën to build the SM in the immediate aftermath of the Peugeot takeover. Rare and appreciated by those in the know.
