Thursday Twister: Single Spoke

This week's Thursday Twister, comes from DT reader Barbpaddles who suggested we look for cars that feature a single spoke steering wheel.  I like this idea as it makes arcane knowledge about cars just a little bit less useless. 


A good example is the Citroën SM which features an odd bottom mounted steering wheel setup that it also shares with its engine donor Maserati Merak.


What other cars use a single spoke steering thingy?

  2. Can we individually name every single Citroen that has used a single spoke wheel or does the opening picture of the SM wipe all that out. Otherwise, I'm going with pedal cars and tractors from the 1950's!

  3. Subaru xt almost. I guess it's really an asymmetrical 3 spoke that looks sort of like a one spoke.

    7. It seems. This seems like a good time to go to a modern blogging platform!

      And I'll show myself out once again.

  5. Aston Martin Lagonda. Great article here.

    And since this thing deserves to be viewed at maximum scale I will "accidentally" post an oversized image:
