Thank you for this video.
Now you all know why I have loved the Citroen since it was first introduced to the public.
Just a few changes in Jays info,

These lights were not taillights but are turn signals.

The hemi four cylinder engine sits in there backwards with number one cylinder to the rear and the trans in front below the spare tire. Front disc brakes are inboard up next to the trans.
The spare tire never went in the trunk but fit in front of the engine as well as the tripod for the lifting of the car to change a tire.
And yes there are five ride height settings but each one will change the ride quality, full up produces a very stiff ride as it changes the pressure inside the sphere and limits the movement and the same with the full down position. Jay said the full down position could be used on highway (freeway) driving and yes you could set it there but again the pressure changes. The best ride quality is when it is set at normal ride height.
After the car sits for a short time it will settle down to its lowest setting so when you start it, it takes a moment to raise back up to normal with the rear going up first.

And the trunk lid is designed for safety in case you have to have it up when driving as it wraps around the rear window so there is still full rear vision.
