Citroën’s on-and-off historical past with North American importation make virtually all of them rarities, and excellent for this collection. Up to now, we’ve seen Citroëns in the type of Traction Avant, XM, and CX. Immediately’s entrance-drive Frenchy is a sporty BX hatchback from 1991.

The BX debuted in 1982, and crammed a market phase the place Citroën hadn’t performed for a few years: the massive household hauler. The decrease trims of the DS crammed the hole by means of its demise in 1974. At that time, the extra luxurious “government” DS trims have been supplanted by the CX (and ultimately the XM). However these automobiles have been too costly for the typical household; BX took its place between the smaller (and dated) GSA and the bigger CX.

Citroën employed Marcello Gandini to pen the angular styling, and he gave it his hallmark flat rear wheel arch. Gandini didn’t have to do a lot of labor to provide you with the BX: He merely searched in the V part of the submitting cupboard, the place the rejected 1979 idea for the Volvo Tundra resided. The marginally reworked design was utilized to a joint Peugeot-Citroën platform shared with the upcoming Peugeot 405, and the older Citroën Visa.

The BX was obtainable in 5-door hatchback or wagon variants. Plastic physique panels stored down weight, and beneath them was Citroën’s adjustable hydro-pneumatic suspension. The BX got here with a number of engines relying on yr and market, however critically, Citroën prevented utilizing the air-cooled engine from the GSA. All engines have been 4 cylinders and liquid-cooled, with displacement starting from 1.1 to 2.1 liters. Gasoline or diesel, carburetor or fuel injection, entrance-drive or 4-wheel drive: BX allowed for consumer selection.

BX remained in manufacturing by means of 1994, earlier than its alternative by the much less fascinating Xantia. Throughout its run, Citroën stored itself busy by including further engine choices and sporting variations to the BX lineup. In the present day’s Rare Journey is one such sporty mannequin. In the midst of the range, the 14 on the badge signifies a 1.four-liter engine beneath hood. That specific engine is sweet for about 70 horsepower by way of the 5-velocity guide transmission. An import from salt-free Spain, this BX is yours for $9,500.
