1979 Citroen CX 2000

1979 Citroen CX

The Citroën CX is an executive car produced by the French automaker Citroën from 1974 to 1991. Citroën sold nearly 1.2 million CXs during its 16 years of production. The CX was voted European Car of the Year in 1975. The name CX is the French equivalent abbreviation of Cd for drag coefficient in

The CX employed Citroën’s unique hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system.

The CX was initially a huge success in Europe, more than 132,000 being produced in 1978. It found customers beyond the loyal Citroën DS customer base and brought the technology of the advanced, but somewhat impractical, Citroën SM to the masses. Unlike its principal competitors, the CX did not have worldwide distribution—the cost of development and improvements had to be met from a geographically small sales base. According to the Driving & Motoring Month the CX “provides a startlingly intelligent set of solutions to modern motoring problems”

This very smart example was purchased new in England by a Dunedin couple, where they travelled Europe in the car before returning with the vehicle to New Zealand in 1980. The car to this day has only had three owners.

In recent years the car has undergone a bare metal repaint along with an engine replacement.

Not only is this car literally a work of art but it is an extremely usable and affordable classic. This car will not disappoint. BAINS CLASSIC MOTOR HOUSE is a low volume classic car broker. Viewing is strictly by appointment in our North Canterbury showroom.
