Go back a few decades and you likely won’t find a more stylish French car than the Citroen CX. It was built between 1974 and 1991 and came with innovative technologies such as the hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension system.
This particular example resides in the USA and it’s being auctioned off on Bring a Trailer. It’s the CX 25 Prestige Turbo model, meaning that it’s powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
There’s a reason why this specific version of the CX was dubbed Prestige. It was longer than the regular-wheelbase model by some 10 inches (25 cm), offering more legroom in the back. However, if this car is on your radar, we’re betting the previously-mentioned suspension is among the features you’re most interested at.
It actually has the same technology that Citroen licensed to Rolls Royce at one point for the Silver Shadow, as proof of just how comfortable of a ride it offered.
As for the interior, it’s quirky even by today’s standards. As with most Citroens of the past, you didn’t get a lot of stalks. Instead you have buttons and chunky dials surrounding the single spoke steering wheel. Speaking of which, the variable power-assist steering system is thankfully operational, unlike the air conditioning, power mirrors, central locking system and oil pressure gauge.
The video below will provide you with pretty much all the angles you want to see this car in, including on-board driving footage.
