1984-1989 CITROEN CX GTi/GTi Turbo specifications Classic and Performance Car

Finally matching high performance to dramatic looks, 1977’s CX GTi was Citroën’s return to grand touring after the demise of the SM. Using the DS23’s fuel-injected 2347cc engine gave 128bhp and a 120mph top speed, while the cars could be identified by their special alloy wheels, blacked-out trim and more sports-orientated interiors. In 1984 Citroën made things even more frantic with the CX GTi Turbo, rated at168bhp. A long time in the shadow of the DS, the CX is now being recognised as one of the great Citroëns.
