Are you interested in a fast but usable 2CV?
Here at Sparrow Automotive, we love to make slow cars go fast. For over 25 years we have developed engine conversions for Citroen A series cars that have been used for road, race and rally.
After using various 4 cylinder engines and modifying 2cv and Visa 652cc engines, it was time to move onto something that actually does the job.
Reliability and usability was key; its expensive to get good power from the Citroen flat twins and the 4 cylinder engines are heavy and out dated.
Our latest conversion moves to a modern oil cooled boxer engine that is available in 70 - 125bhp versions.
We have developed an adaptor kit that allows the BMW R series flat twin motorcycle engine, either single or twin spark versions from 850cc to 1200cc, to be fitted to either standard 2cv late style gearboxes or 4/5 speed Citroen GS/A gearboxes with a Citroen Visa 652cc bell housing. The kit can also be fitted to Babour 4x4 kits.
If you would like more information please don't hesitate to contact us.
The Sparrow Automotive BMW R Series engine to 2CV/GS/A gearbox kit consists of the following parts
Engine to gearbox adaptor plate
Modified diaphragm 2CV flywheel (exchange)
Inlet manifold adaptors
KIT PRICE £700 + Carriage + Exchange flywheel
To complete the conversion you will need the following parts (this may vary on each build)
Valeo diaphragm 2CV clutch
Valeo small starter motor
Donor BMW bike or parts
Engine frame to suit your conversion/engine/chassis/oil cooler
Large oil cooler
