This twin-engine Citroën has been on the desert for 10 years

Real monsters were born in the rally world as early as heroism. In the 70s and 80s, smaller workshops were bidding on each other with more and more serious irons, and in 1979 this amazing little vehicle was born, most reminiscent of a Citroën Duck.

However, this is only an appearance. A built buggy, a little different than you might think at first. The car was built by Jack Hanon for his own purposes, of course for racing. The chassis was provided by a Citroën Super Ami, as was the suspension, and the bodywork was provided by a 1974 Citroën 2CV.

Its engines, because they get two, are from the Citroën GSA, and the 1.3-liter engines work with a total of 8 cylinders, 16 valves and two transmissions. The gears have been synchronized, so there is only one toggle switch in the car, but the two engines can also be operated separately, meaning the race car can only have front, rear or all-wheel drive.

Two 100-liter racing fuel tanks were built, providing enough fuel for 1,600 kilometers in twin-engine operation and 3,200 kilometers in single-engine operation. So the team was able to take enough fuel with them in the long-distance desert races.

Jach Hanon has been using this twin-engine Duck for about 10 years. He competed in North African desert races, among other things, and original documents about most of the races were also attached to the car. These include delivery letters confirming that the car was there, but there is also a manual and several newspapers.

Two racing seats, five-point seat belts and a full roll-over frame fill the cramped passenger compartment. The exterior also wore several decors during the car’s career, but was given back the original when it was last renovated. The engines were refurbished, new Bilstein shock absorbers were installed and the interior was tidied up. Since the car has been gone ever since, one or two minor combat injuries are there, but it can still be said to be perfect. Currently, 4.5 million would be given for it, which is really not a lot of money for such a rarity.
