While the CX does not feature any major technical developments, it is still the first Citroën production car with a transverse front engine. The first models will be equipped with the engines of the latest DS but very quickly the German competition pushes the French manufacturers to a race for power. The GTI phenomenon that appeared in 1976 with a certain Golf did not spare the French Grand Tourer and from the 77 Citroën vintage onwards, the sedan was available in a sporty version. 128 hp are available with a comfortable and sporty chassis. Let's remember that a CX GTI won the Paris-Dakar in 1981. In the mid-1980s, the trend switched to Turbo.
Citroën then presented its offensive in October 1984 in the form of a 25 GTI Turbo. 168 hp are achieved, allowing breathtaking performance (220 km/h). Everyone remembers the advertising of the time with actress Grace Jones, the brand's ambassador, shouting: "CX GTI TURBO, it's demon!" In 1986, the Citroën was restyled and modernized with the appearance of plastic shields.
The CX GTI Turbo presented for sale is a model first put into service on 22/04/1987. It is therefore a Series 2 model with the 168 hp engine. Fox Grey, with a black leather interior with a red stripe. Originally from the Creuse as the tattoo of the original registration on all the windows still shows, this car was always stored in a dry garage and protected from the light, revealing a general condition close to perfection. The current owner, also a collector of DS, is the third owner. This one, with the purchase of the car, starts a major mechanical overhaul. At about 162,000 km, all fluids are drained and the water pump, four TRX tires, hydraulics and brake discs changed. Today, it has just over 169,000 on the meter. The maintenance logbook and history follow-up are available with the car. The car behaves well, drives straight, and the Diravi steering is as pleasant as ever. The handling of the gearbox meets our expectations, as does the braking, reassuring in fast driving. An opportunity not to be missed to rediscover a true Youngtimer in power.
This car will be sold by auction by AGUTTES Auction House, in La Ferté-Vidame, at the Citroën Centenary, France, on July the 21th, 2019.
The digital catalog will be available soon on our website
