Local member Ian C has sent us a link to a very entertaining little comparison test from Motor Trend Magazine in the US.
Every year, Motor Trend selects their Car of the Year. To their credit, they don’t always make obvious choices. Back in 1972, they chose the Citroën SM! This year, the prestigious award went to the all-electric Tesla Model S.
For reasons unknown to anyone, someone at the magazine then decided to do a comparison between the Tesla and a 1956 Citroën DS. While some people would have thought this was going to be the greatest mismatch since David vs Goliath, we Citroën fans know better.
Here is their story, with a result that may surprise many people.
