The Citroen C6 is not as bad a car as its dismal sales numbers would have you believe. Really, it’s not bad at all, more of an acquired taste, which you can now try out for yourself in the US, as one is available for sale in New York state.
It’s a 2.7-liter diesel model from 2006 that has allegedly (somehow) been legally imported and registered. We aren’t told how the owner got it into the country, but we do know it was brought over from Belgium.
Either way, you can now legally drive it on US roads, and you’ll get to experience what is widely acknowledged to be the last true Citroen.It was never a perfect car, but between its styling, high levels of comfort and oddball heritage, it’s still an attractive buy for the right person.
The only problem is price: you can get a good one now in Europe for under $10,000, yet this example is up for $35,000 on Craigslist. Ah, the price you pay for other people to find loopholes and register unusual (and theoretically, illegal) cars…
