Citroen BX 4TC 1986 – SPRZEDANY

Citroen BX 4TC to niemal zapomniany dziś model, który powstał jako konkurent Peugeota 205 T16, MG Metro 6R4 czy Audi Quattro. Debiutował w 1985 roku, wziął udział w jedymie trzech rajdach Mistrzostw Świata. Zanim dopracowano konstrukcję hydropneumatycznego zawieszenia, Grupa B została zlikwidowana, a rajdowy projekt zamknięty. Citroeny dysponowały napędem na cztery koła i silnikami 2,2 l turbo o mocy 200 KM, która w wyczynowych odmianach podnoszona była do ok. 380 KM. Do celów homologacyjnych miało powstać 200 egzemplarzy wersji drogowej. Sprzedano ich zaledwie 86, co więcej – większość z nich została odkupiona i zniszczona przez producenta, podobno w obawie przed kosztami gwarancyjnego serwisu. Nieliczne przetrwałe egzemplarze są dziś kolekcjonerską ciekawostką. Przedstawiony egzemplarz licytowany był bez ceny minimalnej i sprzedany został za 61984 euro (ok. 276 tys. PLN).

The BX 4TC represents Citroën’s attempt at engaging into World Rally Championship at the time of the famous Group B era. For homologation, the manufacturer had to produce 200 cars and consequently developed a road version on the base of the BX, powered by a turbocharged 2141cc engine developing 200bhp, with a four-wheel-drive system. On the „Evolution” version for the official team, the specifications were more sporting and max power reached 380bhp, yet it wasn’t good enough and the BX 4TC was finally withdrawn from the championship.Total production, executed at Heuliez, would total up to just 86 units, though the cars were to have been destroyed by Citroen, under the supervision of a bailiff. Rumor though says that Citroën offered the owners of the „4TC” to buy them back at twice their value. Whatever be the truth, it is unquestionably a very rare model, of which only forty examples are said to remain.

This BX 4TC was sold new by the Citroën dealership in Le Blanc-Mesnil to Jean-Claude Texier, of Asnieres, as we can see from the car’s handbook. It was later recovered by the Citroën factory and given to André Trigano without any registration papers and with the promise that it would not enter any competitive event. It is today in a very good original condition, with all the special equipment and the odometer shows 45,745 km from new. The car comes with its original manuals. It is a rare opportunity to acquire a Group B car, one of the most mythical categories in the history of rallying. This true collector is an opportunity that comes by very rarely, if ever.
