    I also burst out laughing today - stuck in a little jam, I looked right and saw a low-spec BMW 1 series - filthy dirty and being piloted by a late-20s middle-classed, snob-faced twat with a beard.

    Mad Cyril reacted to Talbot in Citroen Hydropneumatique 1954 - 2018 +++ An attempt at a tribute thread +++ Caution: André's Asylum inside!   
    Just to add my twopenneth to this thread, I love Hydro Citroens. I haven't had one as a daily for a while now, and I miss them. I like the fact that they are hydraulically complex, that they are unconventional, and that their design aim was comfort and safe handling over a "sporty/dynamic" ride. They would be (and have proven to be) useless at being raced, and this is an good thing.
     
    I also find the fully-powered brake system very confidence inspiring, and DIRAVI was just fantastic to drive with.
     
    The DS, GS(A), CX and (most aspects of) BX showed this system at it's best. As soon as things like anti-sink, centre spheres, de-centralised brakes and conventional PAS were fitted, the system's days were numbered. I'm surprised it's lasted as long as it has, as in the 1960's and 1970's, car buyers were actually interested in the engineering in their cars, and things like the famous GS driving on 3 wheels or having a blow-out and steering dead-straight actually sold cars.
     
    These days, most new car buyers don't even know how to open the bonnet, and couldn't care less about the underlying engineering of the car. Most couldn't tell you which wheels of their car are driven, or indeed how many cylinders their engine has, much less the details of it's suspension system.
     
    A shame.

    I believe a lot of the arguments, objections and mud-slinging the moment anyone dares point out the inherent advantages (laws of physics, not subjective opinion) of hydropn. suspension is a result of there not being a proper understanding of why it made it into mass production.
     
    Reading the thread, there are comments about modern sphered Cits riding badly because of the adoption of the front strut (not true), that the company only did what they did because USP and they were capable (they did things differently if it could be demonstrated it was a better solution), McLaren are making use of the technology (no, their steel-sprung suspension deals with damping and anti roll, but was inspired by Citroën), that you can achieve as good a ride with conventional suspension (yes, but beyond a certain speed and loadings things deteriorate significantly compared with gas over oil) and so on.
     
    It all comes down to one thing - by increasing the amount of time a tyre's contact patch pressure is optimum, effective suspension makes a car faster by increasing grip and stability, and not just through the suppleness an infinite rising rate and fully self-levelling setup allows. That's what Citroën was seeking and found - and achieved what nobody else has ever come close to, with such simplicity and effect.
