Simca 1000 Rallye

Simca 1000 Rallye I & II

Simca 1000 Rallye

1974 Simca 1000 2 (green) and 1 (orange)

 

 

Both models were fitted with the 1294 cc engine, the Rallye 1 producing 60 hp and the Rallye 2 82 hp. The twin carbs on the Rallye 2 must have helped! The 2's roadholding was noticeably better than that of the Rallye 1 - one reason being the very sticky tyres (not exactly long-lasting if I remember correctly).
