If You Aren’t Smiling After Watching These Citröen Dyanes Rally, Then You Are Probably Seasick From Watching The Suspension Work!

Think of the Citröen Dyane as an upgraded version of the 2CV: in top-performance Dyane 6 form, there’s a 602cc flat-two engine driving the front wheels, a very light body structure, and after watching them go all-out at a rally, suspension travel that requires Dramamine to tolerate. We love an inappropriate car doing what it shouldn’t do, and with bicycle-wide tires and 32 horsepower on tap, rally racing is the last possible thing we would do with one. Alberto Miera, on the other hand, has absolutely no issue whatsoever wringing out his Dyane 6 on rally courses. The YouTube video description refers to Miera as the “brave pilot”, and watching the Dyane move around reinforces that statement. It might not be powerful, but anything past cruising speed brings out the suspension travel, and Miera isn’t afraid of the car at all, going so far as to induce oversteer. Watching the front wheels lay over in the corners makes us wonder just how many tie rod ends he goes through per race!
