Citroen M35 Wankel Coupe
From 1969-71 the M35 is produced, a prototype 2-door fastback coupe made to research the Citroen Wankel engine in 'normal' service with paying customers who do high mileages. Only 267 M35 coupes are made out of an intended 500; they were built by Heuliez. Robert Opron had designed the M35, with obvious similarities to the Ami 8, but in fact few panels were shared between the two models.
