But who dared to spend € 47,000 on a Citroën BX?


The days of making fun of Citroën BXs are definitely over.

Marketed between 1982 and 1994, the Citroën BX rivaled the compact family cars from Peugeot and Renault with a particularly bold approach in terms of style. But this car with its very particular lines quickly became a little out of date. Over the years, the BX has even become the absolute symbol of bad automotive taste with some comedians.

Today, however, no one laughs thinking about the BX anymore. On the occasion of the Artcurial online sale which ended on Monday, a copy of the BX 16S indeed sold no less than 47,000 euros while specialists were counting on a value between 15,000 and 20,000 euros.

Very low mileage

The car displays only 36,315 kilometers on the odometer, which partly explains its astronomical selling price. But all the same, the sum seems a little crazy in the light of the car itself: at the time of its release, the BX 16S did not thrill anyone with its moderately sporty chassis, despite the 160 horsepower. its four cylinders (identical to that of the Peugeot 309 GTI 16 much more efficient). The Peugeot 205 GTI, much more sought after in the “youngtimer” genre, rarely costs more than 40,000 euros even with low mileage!
