Launched in October 1974, the CX replaced the iconic DS in the Citroën line-up, inheriting its revolutionary predecessor's hydraulic suspension, brakes and power-assisted steering. One of the last models to be designed entirely 'in-house' prior to the take-over by Peugeot, the CX is considered by many to be the last of the 'true' Citroëns. With its futuristic, aerodynamic, shark-like looks, the CX appeared every bit as different from the herd as the DS had on its arrival 20 years previously. By way of comparison, its introduction came only 12 months after that of the Austin Maxi... Front-wheel drive, of course, the CX would be produced in various forms over the next 17 years, including the luxurious Pallas and Prestige saloons and the cavernous Safari and Familiale estates, and in 1975 was voted 'European Car of the Year'. Today, the idiosyncratic CX is one of the more collectible of modern Citroëns.
This 2.5-litre, automatic transmission Safari estate was acquired by the current owner in 2006 and has been off the road since 2009. Various works were carried out that year for the MoT test, and a new exhaust fitted (bills on file). We are advised that the car is running and driving, with all electrics working with the exception of the central locking. A genuine total of only 37,586 miles is currently displayed on the odometer. Sold strictly as viewed, the car is offered with the aforementioned bills, an expired MoT (2009) and a V5C registration document. A Perspex sunroof, replacing the original Webasto, is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
