Hi SuperSelect,

I am glad you liked that picture, searched through all my pictures, could not find anything else from Dr.Kumar's collection. Though i found a couple of pictures of another car from the Sharjah car museum. Hope nobody minds it if i post it here and hoping you have another great day tomorrow!

The first car in the world I think, to have hydraulic suspension!
Citroen developed self-levelling, rising-rate gas over oil hydraulic suspension for its replacement for the Traction Avant, the DS - the 2cv used interconnected coil springs which lie horizontally under each floor, mounted on the chassis. The 2cv's suspension is setup for the poor French roads of the 1940s and 50s with long travel and soft springs - the comfort, toughness and longevity of these cars is legendary.

The hydraulic suspension was used under licence by Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Benz (for its estate cars and coupes) - my W124 300TD has a Citroen hydraulic rear suspension. Many agricultural vehicles also use it, most notably the JCB Fastrack.
