Not too sure if it was him, he’s owned it for around 3 years. I’ve got some other pictures he’s sent me I’ll try dig out...

XM 6 wheeler
I think we've had these before on some thread ... IIRC they were used to distribute mail in France.




Conceived by Pierre Tissier in response to the requirements of the French newspaper industry's headache of getting news distributed through the country at high speed overnight. The CX had a payload of 1 metric tonne and could travel at speeds well in excess of an HGV, and deliver direct to point. The drivers would report that they'd cruise at 160km/h through the night on the deserted Autoroutes.

The TGV took over news paper delivery eventually but Tissier continued with conversions on the CX, XM and other Citroens.

Transporting the film crew chopper on the Dakar for example.

I have seen similar "connecting boxes" on multi-engined tractor pullers,

if I understood correctly is is a set of matching gears that take the power from both sides at the cranks

and deliver it to the middle gear, where the clutch/converter/transmission sits.

Well they stuck 5x 6 cylinder engines together in a Sherman M4 tank

They also made a Twin Engine unit (GM 6046) with what looks like the method they used in the truck.

This was at the Forge action day Castle Combe in 2016, it looks driverless laugh

Here’s a 20 min walk around of it, and if I remember correctly he talks about the steering box nearing the end of the video. Should answer other people’s questions about it too thumbup

Wheels just look awful, as do the plates, but each to their own. The rest is really well done and the interior is very nice. Oh and that silly sticker on the back window needs to go.

I think he's going for a bit of a Compomotive/Gp. A vibe with the wheels but it doesn't quite work. Scratch off the stupid rear window sticker and put it on some BBS E55s or even Comp MOs and I'd have it, though.

It's on air ride, which is why he put the plate on as a nod to people that prefer what BMW did with it.
