WHY I LOVE MY CITROËN CX

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling - GE­ORGE ANTONIOU

A proper Citroën en­thu­si­ast, Ge­orge also owns a DS but reck­ons he’s found his per­fect car in the CX. ‘I owned a DTR diesel model in 2000 and re­ally missed it,’ he says. ‘A CX makes every jour­ney an ad­ven­ture and it was a car I re­ally looked for­ward to driv­ing. It was a real buzz, so now that I’ve got an­other it feels like my car col­lec­tion is com­plete. I bought this 1988 GTi Turbo 2 re­cently. When I saw it on eBay I wanted to see it straight­away. It’s in very good con­di­tion, there’s no rust and it’s me­chan­i­cally sound. I’ve al­ready won a prize with it at a Citroën show, so I’m re­ally happy with it. I’m us­ing it as my daily driver. The CX is a car you have to spend time with so you can re­ally get to know it. Then it makes com­plete sense, but a short drive just doesn’t demon­strate how bril­liant they are. I find them very com­fort­able and re­fined, and buy­ing this one made me re­alise how much I love them.’
