Production of the Matra Djet sports car began in 1965 with just a few hundred cars being sold in Europe. In the meantime their Formula 3 cars were having some success on the racetrack. The Djet 5 soon became the Djet 5S. The M530 was introduced in 1967 and sold through Simca, later owned by Chrysler. The Bagheera introduced the revolutionary three-seater configuration with the engine positioned transversely behind the driver. There were various engine changes during the next few years with Chrysler adding the Rancho in the late 1970s. Peugeot took over the European arm of Chrysler in 1978 and the Bagheera ceased to be imported into the UK in 1979. The three-seater idea was continued with the Murena.
