Description

Serial number VF7MANK0001NK5045
74,000 actual kilometers
One of three known survivors
French title

It was in a Norman garage that Jean Luc Thérier then agent Citroën in Neufchatel en Bray will discover this car in 1987 and insist to buy it while it was not intended for sale. The CX had very few miles when it became his property. Registered under the name of the garage it will serve as a showcase for it. Jean Luc Thérier was the only one to drive it on special occasions. When his agency closed in 2009, it had not been used for a few years. After transferring the registration title to his personal name, he stored it in an outbuilding of his property, taking care to raise it on pallets to isolate it from the ground. It was only 74000 Kms real. He will run it regularly and never used it again. Knowing himself ill, he told us of his intention to part with it after having revised it. Unfortunately, the disease did not leave him the possibility to do it. It had not moved for ten years when we went to get the car. The condition once cleaned is satisfactory. Only the backrest fabric of the driver's seat shows signs of use. The engine starts without difficulty and if a replacement of hoses and belts is necessary, there does not seem to be much work to be expected. Three rims are those of the original GTI turbo, and there are four wheels of normal GTI, including one in spare and two in the trunk. Once researched, it seems there are only three CX Concorde left. One would be in wreckage and the other one has a serial number (NK 5046) with a previous date of first circulation of 4 days was offered for sale at Rétromobile 2018. It showed 550 000 km. Jean Luc Thérier (7/10/1945 – 31/7/2019) Fondly nicknamed “The Fox” by his fellow pilots who appreciated his constant good humor, and was a fine pilot who drove mainly "instinctively". He was unofficially World Rally Champion in 1973, Five-time champion of France and won a French Cup. His career ended in 1985 when he was seriously injured in Paris-Dakar, losing the use of an arm.
