The legendary Citroën DS would always be a hard act to follow, but the new CX model quickly received accolades on its launch at the 1974 Paris Motor Show. The sleek, aerodynamic lines and sharp Kamm-type tail were designed by Robert Opron, bearing some resemblance to the earlier, smaller, GS model. The mechanical specification was typically advanced, combining Citroën's hydro-pneumatic self-levelling suspension and speed-sensitive power steering (first seen on the Citroën SM). The car sold in good numbers in Europe and won the title of European Car of The Year in 1975. Series 2 vehicles appeared in 1985 with a slightly more aggressive look, the main difference being the use of plastic bumpers. The interior was modified but retained the distinctive driver’s console with ‘fingertip’ control layout. The CX models were powered by a range of inline four cylinder engines, which grew from an initial capacity of 2 litres up to 2½ litres, with the highest performance option being the GTi Turbo, which had a claimed output of close to 170bhp and top speed in excess of 130mph. Production of the range ended in 1991. This Series 2 GTi Turbo was first registered in January 1987 and has been well looked after during its life, with 5 previous owners recorded and the mileage of a little under 89,000 believed genuine, given the service records held.
This is a very original Series 2 CX, fitted with the most powerful engine variant available and, being in very good condition, offers a supremely comfortable means of high speed travel. If desired, a second spares car and stock of spares are available separately. The car is currently located in Dorset should viewing wish to be arranged by appointment.
The body of the car is sound and solid with just a little light corrosion in the driver’s door, boot lid and bonnet. The white paintwork and colour matched bumpers present well and generally look good but could warrant some attention to return to a really smart condition. The underside of the car is in a generally good condition – it has had previous repairs carried out, but these appear well executed. The CX has its original ‘Turbo’ alloy wheels and the tyres have plenty of tread remaining.
The interior is generally very good. It has grey herringbone cloth upholstery with both seats and carpeting in a good condition. The dashboard is unmarked and excellent. The headlining however, has started to sag and warrants attention.
The vehicle is in good mechanical health and drives very well. It has had recent work on the hydraulic system – with 6 new (GTi specification) spheres fitted this year – and the hydro-pneumatic suspension rises quickly and quietly. The battery has also been replaced in 2022.
