About Landing Slam Bodys
A Citroen landing slam body is an extremely important part of a motor vehicle’s construction that assists in minimising the damage that the vehicle might sustain in a front end collision. The Citroen landing slam body panel can be found beneath the vehicle’s bonnet. It is made up of a rigid metal cross section that extends across the front of the car. Its primary role is to protect the parts that are located in the engine compartment and at the front of the vehicle. It also has a secondary role in that the vehicle’s headlights and its front grille are also attached to it.
As with all metal car body parts the Citroen landing slam body is liable to damage and wear and tear through rusting. Although this type of damage can be minimised by keeping the part as clean as possible it will sometimes become necessary to replace it, especially if it is damaged in a collision. Although a replacement Citroen landing slam body may be relatively easily accessed from a motor parts supplier, because of the potential difficulty in fitting it and the importance that it plays in protecting various vital components of the vehicle, it may be prudent to have it professionally fitted by a qualified motor mechanic.
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
- Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
- Buying Maserati was definitely a mistake for Citroën. The SM model didn't sell well, and that led to financial difficulties that meant the car company was eventually acquired by Peugeot.
- Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
