1930→1938 Panhard et Levassor X72

The X72 chassis used a Knight-licensed sleeve valve engine of 2.5-liters and is officially known as the 6CS Type X72. It is also known as the CS RL in 1932 named after the ‘roue libre’ free-wheeling system.

A popular body on the X72 chassis was the Berline Panoramique which used twin A-posts to offer better forward vision.
