A classic 1930's French FWD getaway car
The Lemon Adieu is a 1934-1957 sedan made in France. With a front wheel drive, a synchronized gearbox, a rack-and-pinion steering and a monocoque body, it was a real revolution and even at the end of a production it was one of the most technically advanced vehicles on the market. The front wheels are sprung independently using torsion bars. The rear wheels are mounted on a beam axle also using torsion bars.

Cops and robbers
Famous for its extraordinary road-holding abilities and low weight, this car quickly became a popular choice of both police and gangsters. Yes, it is not the fastest one, but quick enough to get Jean-Paul out of the prison.

Tuning and motorsport
The car was later replaced by the Fantomas models, which shared the same (but more powerfull) 1.9 litre engines. Therefore, an engine swap was a popular tuning option. This mod uses the 1961 Fantomas engine, which enables player to tune the car to setup multiple realistic cruise and racing versions of the car using voluntary intake restrictions.

The car is good for cruises and twisty rallycross races. It is not suitable for fast tracks. The suspension works well on rough surfaces. The fully-tuned cars with a zero intake restriction can closely compete with the Hanzmund V8 mod.

Stock 1.9-litre cruise versions:Custom 1.9-litre racing versions
  • Use less than 20% voluntary intake restrictions for racing vehicles with the Fantomas engines.
Stock big six 2.9-litre cruise version (bonus):
  • 1938 - 1955 2.9-litre V6 stock car (77 bhp)
  • keep in mind, that this version should be longer IRL and it is just a bonus to play with, until a proper derivative mod appears
Realism note
While the front axle is realistically replicated using technical drawings, the rear axle is roughly approximated because the LFS currently does not support beam axles. The approximation ensures that camber and track are as similar as possible to the beam axle during fast cornering, but the suspension is fully independent and therefore little faster through potholes than the real-world car.

This Vehicle Mod is inspired by another vehicle.
This mod is a tribute to the Citroen Traction Avant 11 Legere. The interior and some details are inspired by the Citroen Traction Avant 7. The engine output of the tuned version is inspired by Citroen DS 19M.

The chassis and the default setup were tuned according to technical data obtained from following webpages:

The basic model proportions were set according to:

Many technical details were changed to meet the requirements of the Live for Speed physics. For example the original torsion bars and the rear beam axle are approximated by specially tuned double-wishbone suspension.


Vehicle Mods have to undergo a review process to hopefully avoid any future disputes about inappropriate or unauthorised content.
If however some detail has been overlooked during the review process and you wish to address this, you can file a dispute by contacting the LFS developers.
We will review every report and typically get back to you within 48 hours, but at most 7 days.
