Ibiza special, pt. 5

I’ve spotted a nest of Ducks near Santa Eularia. There were many more but no way inside the area. Note the yellow 007-2CV 6 Club, one of 700 produced in 1981 as tribute to Bonds fabulous ride in “For your eyes only” after his Lotus Esprit had destroyed itself. The scenes were partly filmed in Madrid. These “Jaune Hélios” are only genuine with 42 (fake) bullet holes. The ones used in the film had actually a 4 cylinder Citroén GS engine in it.

Con el GS, Citroën popularizó los avances tecnológicos que previamente incorporaba en su gama alta desde la década de 1950 principalmente con el DS y el ID, creando un automóvil accesible pero dotado de la singular tecnología hidroneumática que le había dado mucha fama a la marca.
Inicialmente equipó un motor bóxer refrigerado por aire de solo 1015 cc y 55 CV aunque posteriormente su cilindrada se fue elevando hasta alcanzar los 1300 cc y los 65 CV. en sus últimas versiones. Con una carrocería más aerodinámica incluso que la de su hermano mayor el Citroën CX, su seguridad activa y confort de marcha eran superlativos.

What a difference 45 years makes Citroen GS, 1970, juxtaposed with the Citroen C5, 2015. The GS was Citroen’s first mid-size saloon (and wagon) slotting between the DS and the Ami/2CV, it was powered by an air-cooled flat-4 engine of either 1015 or 1222cc. The latest C5 will be available with with two new Euro6-compliant diesel engines, the BlueHDi 150 and BlueHDi 180
