Description

"The Citroën CX was initially a huge success in Europe, with more than 132,000 being produced in 1978. Designed by Robert Opron, the CX drew upon its predecessor, the DS, by following its flowing lines and futuristic styling. The car was one of the most cutting edge cars of its time, combining the unique hydro-pneumatic self-levelling suspension, speed-adjustable power steering and its unique interior design that did away with steering column stalks.
Suspension was mounted to sub-frames fitted to the body through flexible mountings, this reduced road noise and improved the ride. Both petrol and diesel powered models were available in various engine sizes including turbo-charged versions. The top-end sports model was the CX GTi Turbo, launched in 1984; the GTi Turbo had 168 hp and a top-speed of 137 mph.
This highly original UK factory right hand drive example is presented in metallic grey with blue cloth interior which is in beautiful condition according to the vendor. The car comes with Citroën dealer history from new until 2008 and then subsequently maintained by specialists CX Centre and Brodie Engineering. Its 58,000 miles from new is warranted and it also comes with a full book pack and toolkit. The owner has recently fitted a new full exhaust and new spheres. These sporty saloons were the envy of many back in the 1980s for their lively performance combining superlative comfort, both of which are still present today."
