Starting with the 2 CV, Citroën expanded the range with more sophisticated models, increasing the level of comfort and equipment. The first derivative of this type was the Ami 6, launched in 1961. It also adopted the air-cooled, flat-twin engine on a similar base to the 2 CV, but was styled by Bertoni and given an unusual, rather provocative appearance, with an inverted rear window. The estate version unveiled in 1964 was so successful that it sold in greater numbers than the saloon. Logically, this estate led to the Ami 8 in 1969 with a more fluid design and a rear tailgate without a sill. It was also given disc brakes. In 1973, to deal with the lack of power, the car was equipped with the flat-four GS engine and took on the name Ami Super. With its lightweight body, this engine worked wonders and powered the car to over 140 km/h.
The Ami Super on offer is in strictly original condition and appears never to have been repainted or restored. A few bubbles of corrosion have appeared at the top of the rear left wing, but overall the car is sound. Inside, the odometer records 36 535 km, with well-preserved original fabric and leatherette upholstery, in brown and beige. The dashboard sports a period Blaupunkt radio and the car comes with its original owner's manual. It is rare to find an example of this model that has survived the years so well, especially as the production of saloons was limited to 24 797 examples. With its GS engine, this car is particularly appealing to enthusiasts.
