1982-1994 CITROEN BX specifications Classic and Performance Car

Launched under the Eiffel Tower at the end of 1982, the BX was a clever fusion of Peugeot rationality and Citroën individualism. Despite being idiosyncratically styled by Marcello Gandini and blessed with drum dials and paddle switchgear, the BX was sold on the back of an advertising campaign that played up on its easy-to-service nature. Sales started out slowly, but following the arrival of facelifted models (and round dials) in 1986, then the turbodiesels and GTi model, they picked up massively. Survivors have thinned out, and banger status will soon be behind the BX.
