Re: Wind Tunnel testing of Cars
Their main engineer was André Lefèbvre and he was the leading genius in many respects. He worked very closely with Flaminio Bertoni, the styling engineer who was from an Italian family of sculptors. Pierre Boulanger was the overseer of the company's greatest products.
I have driven many great cars, from old Alfa Romeos through Ferraris to Porsches - but none begins to come close to the abilities and engineering of a hydraulic Citroën DS, SM, CX or GS. They stretch the laws of physics. Their engineering was total, even if they didn't design for countries other than France, specifically. Designed for fast French roads which were poorly made, they can cover vast distances at great speed without tiring the driver or passengers, due to their poise and roadholding. You have to drive one in such a way to begin to appreciate their capabilities. They are also the very epitomy of cool.
