The car we are presenting is a 1971 carburettor SM. This copy has been fully prepared for historical rallies.

The engine was completely dismantled, it was fitted with a hydraulic chain tensioner and the valves were reinforced, a partitioned oil pan was installed and the ignition was completely redone. To limit engine overheating problems, an oil cooler and an additional fan have been installed. The hydraulic system has been completely redesigned and the spheres have been adjusted to suit the practice of rallying. At the electrical level, the harness has been completely redesigned and optimized, the sensitive points sealed, a circuit breaker installed and the battery moved into the trunk. Additional lights have also been installed. To ensure lightness, the air conditioning system has been dismantled and the body completely emptied. A 6-point rollbar was custom-made and two bucket seats and 4-point harnesses were installed. The car also has all the necessary instrumentation for the co-pilot.
