 cabriolet - ost. rok do lipca. 


The complicated valve system using tiny torsion bars has been improved by the use of hydraulic rods called "Eiffel Tower". The modified engine is called S5 RJH. All aluminium body proved to be very expensive in production. The alloy called Duralinox was replaced by an all steel construction wich increased the weight of the car from 710 to 975 kg.
Series Z5 has simplified rear lights. The engine has been modified for better economy.
In August the Z11 and Z12 models for 1957 were launched with an all-steel body, conventional hydraulic shock absorbers and a new large rear lights.
Electromagnetic Felrlec clutch option has been dropped in October.

The Dyna Panhard, whose 850 c.c. engine places it in the same class as the Dauphine, costs over £100 more, but in return seats six instead of four and its engine develops 42 b.h.p. as opposed to 30. Production is being greatly increased now that the firm has become directly associated with Citroen, and Citroen service stations will now also handle Panhards. The very attractive new two-door convertible at £1,050 is expensive - costing about £100 more than the DS19. Panhards are now of all-steel construction. New shock absorbers and mountings front and rear, reinforced crankshaft, larger valves and an improved gear box components are also now fitted. Proof that the Panhard's high power output and low weight are not achieved at any sacrifice in life and reliability is indicated by an order for 500 by the Paris taxi authority.
