The original Citroën Rosalie was a race car light weight, which established a series of records on the racing circuit of Montlh*. More generally the Rosalie was a range of three models / sizes of automobile that comprised the core of Citroën's model range between 1932 and 1938. The three models were originally designated respectively the 8CV, the 10CV and the 15CV, the numbers that define the cars ' fiscal horsepower which in turn defines the displacement estimated from each model. After the introduction of the new front-wheel drive , the alignment was changed, and at the Paris Salon 1934 the two smaller models became the 7UA and the 11UA, now with the OHV engines from the traction.
In the introduction, the larger Rosalies replaced the C4 and C6 Citroën, themselves launched respectively in 1928 and 1929. Also accounted for a luxurious movement for the entire business, since during the decade of the 1930s Citroën appeared for a time to lose interest in cars smaller, had filled their dealerships during the 1920s, the impoverished. The Rosalies, especially the larger 15CV versions, is offered with the range of different types of body: this was common at the time. Although it is not radical in terms of subsequent launches of the Citroën, the look of the Rosalies was significantly more modern than the previous models in C4 and C6. However, the real revolution at Citroën during these years involved production technology. André Citroën had been inspired by a practice of your visit of 1912 to Henry Ford's then new fleet of the Ford plant Highland in Michigan , and in 1932 Citroën was still a european leader in the application of assembly line manufacturing. Rosalies were competitively but apparently a cost effective price.
In 1934 all the Rosalies received a facelift which involved the application of an angle gently raked to the front grille. Later versions of cosmetic surgery that appeared were known as the versions NH, or also as the series B. NH meant "Nouvel Habillage" (literally "New clothing").
1934 was also the year that saw the introduction of the successor to the mould-breaking of Rosalie, the front-wheel-drive semi-monocoque Citroën Traction Avant . The traction suffered a birth process problematic and protracted, however, and was part of an ambitious investment programme which involved, also in 1934, the bankruptcy of the company, and its acquisition by the principal creditor of Citroën . The pattern himself died in 1935. In this problematic situation, the availability of Rosalies larger (although with new engines with a converted version around engine OHV four-cylinder of the new drive) continued till 1938: it is only through the prism deforming of subsequent events that its reputation has been diminished when in contrast with the technical brilliance of its successor.
On the whole, 88.090 four-cylinder and 7.230 Rosalies of six cylinders were built (38,840 small 7/8's, and 49.250 more big 10 / 11). Of the total produced 8,400 of them were of the, series B facelift of short duration (NH) and around 15,000 were of the last car, "my".
The smallest Rosalie, like the Type B Model of the first half of the 1920s, featured a four-cylinder engine 1.452 cc , traction to the rear wheels. The gearbox of three speeds had synchronized in the two higher ranges, and braking was provided by drum brakes on all four wheels. The car was 4,27 meters (168,1 inches) long and offers a maximum speed of 90 km / h (approximately 56 mph).
The 10CV offered a four-cylinder engine 1.767 cc and a maximum speed claimed of 100 km / h (approximately 62 mph). In 4,57 meters (179,9 inches) long that was bigger than his brother, four-cylinder. In most of the other aspects that was mechanically identical to the 8CV. Commercially, however, it enjoyed greater success, possibly due to a greater variety of available versions, which included the lighter (and implicitly, therefore, faster) Rosalie 10 Légère.
The greater Rosalie offered a six-cylinder engine of 2,650 cc, the cylinders are of the same size as the 10CV. The length of the block of the engine requires a hood lengthened / bonnet: the total length of a vehicle was 4,72 metres (185,8 inches). Various body types and configurations available, including a 15 Légère - effectively a 15CV with the length of the passenger cabin, the shorter of the 10CV - which was capable of claiming 120 km / h (approximately 75 mph) top speed. For versions saloon / sedan top speed was 115 claimed km / h (about 71 mph).
During the last four model years, the 8 and 10 are replaced by the 7UA and 11UA, both called "MI" for Engine reverse ( "motor reversed") as the engines are shared with the front wheels up recently and driven much more strongly of Citroën drive traction models, were delivered through 180 degrees to suit the Rosalies rear-wheel-drive. While the "7" usually refers to a horse as a prosecutor in the French market, the engine of 1.628 dc traction 7C was in reality a unit of 9 CV - that had to be made larger and more powerful, in order to achieve the design parameter of a 100 km / h (62 mph) top speed.
