Nelson Brenner (Patrick McGoohan
) drives a brand new Citroën SM, US model (round, non-directional headlights), powered by a Maserati engine. After the initial craze (Car of the Year 1972 for Motor Trend magazine) it proved a commercial failure, even being banned in the US in 1974. There were only 12,920 Citroën SM produced between 1970 and 1975, when the bankrupt company was bought out by other French manufacturer Peugeot. Columbo's car is a Peugeot 203 cabriolet, and he claims there are only three others like it in the country. See more
