Renault 5 has it there too. Must be a French thing.

While the engine is compact and small enough... I am not so much into cars, not even into classic ones, but I guess that at least some British classics had the wheel there too...

That is just of a number of advantages provided by her small yet compact engine, which not only leaves enough room free for the replacement wheel but also allows for the front wheels to have such a narrow turn ratio, something common to classic CitroŽn cars, or at least to some of them. Besides, since this engine is air-cooled, it needs of no radiator as in liquid-cooled engines, which is translated into smoother or more aerodynamic lines...

No, Iīm not so much of a car fan, actually (rather, Iīm a fan on old aircraft). In fact, this is one of the really few things that I know more or less in detail about cars, and being about this old (and for me also greatly beloved) car of mine, it is only natural that Iīm supposed to know a bit about it... Thanks for the comment, by the way.
