Description

French title - Unbelievable original mileage - First owned from 1979 to 2012 - In " as new " condition, never restored - Just 20 380 km from new This car's story began on 20 November 1979 when it was acquired by a company boss from the Strasbourg area. He used the car for the odd weekend and holiday, but then lost his sight suddenly through an illness. Unable to use it, he put the car away in his heated garage. It was simply washed, without water, once a month. The car had covered just 20,300 km since leaving the factory and had never been taken out in the rain. It remained in the garage, without being driven, for 22 years. When the first owner died, his heirs agreed to sell this sleeping beauty to the current owner, who is passionate about this particular model. To make the car road-worthy, he gave it to his agent, who carried out a full service, and changed any parts that had deteriorated over time, such as the suspension, hoses, fuel tank, fuel pump, the four tyres and the exhaust. Today, the odometer reads 20,380 km, the original mileage. This Prestige is in 'as new' condition, which is unheard of for a CX. We could not fault this car, presented in a splendid colour combination of grey with beige velours upholstery. What more is there to say about this Prestige 2400, other than it is undoubtedly the only one in such original condition, having never been repainted and with such low mileage...A rare, if not once-in-a lifetime opportunity.
