Lot 182 - 1990 Citroën CX Safari
|Odometer reading||79,000 km|
|Estimate||£13,000 - £17,000|
- A time warp Citroen CX
- Boasting ground breaking Hydropneumatics suspension
The Citroën CX is a large, front-engine, front-wheel-drive executive car manufactured from 1974 to 1991. Production models took the form of a four-door fastback saloon, estate, and a long-wheelbase fastback limousine. The CX is known for its hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system, and its low coefficient of drag, underscored by its nameplate CX, which references the aerodynamics symbol for drag coefficient. The Estate (Safari in the United Kingdom), produced from 1975 until 1991, was a 25 cm longer car. These models had increased load capacity baggage; equipment; passengers, taking full advantage of the CX's self-levelling suspension. The Estate was the last CX to be replaced. It was one of the largest, and because of its suspension, most practical, family cars available in Europe. The Safari was a success with speedway riders and other motorcycle racers, as the capacious design meant a bike could easily fit in the back.
Described as possibly one of the best CX safari’s on the market this stunning example presented in Blue has covered a mere 79,000 kilometres translating to 49,000 miles. Supplied with paperwork to support this mileage coupled to an MoT test certificate with no advisories sitting on near perfect wheels all shod with new tyres. Described as rust free by the vendor this CX has also been recently serviced and has had all taxes paid documentation from its import from Switzerland via Germany with CX specialists CX Basics. The vendor speaks glowingly of this example which is in true time warp condition with the hydropneumatics suspension and design due to drag coefficient…. A car that we believe will much like the ground breaking DS become a real collectors car due to the advanced engineering.
