Further information submitted:
The silver two-door car shown is one of the ultra-rare M35 cars - based on the Ami shell and floor pan, it was modified to two door and, more imprtant, fitted with a rotary engine! Most of the cars were recalled by Citroen from the selected customers who were allowed them and were scrapped. A very few survive.
