1985 Citroen BX GT

Do you want to stand out in the crowd? You’ll be saying Vive la France! in this 1985 Citroen BX GT presented by Blue Marlin Motors USA.

This is a truly rare opportunity. Owning this car virtually guarantees that you will be the only person on the road driving one. Why, you ask?

Because this car may be the only left-hand drive 1985 Citroen BX GT known to exist in the United States.

Rarity aside, the Citroen BX GT was a very advanced car for the time period. It oozes character. It’s loaded with technology and well thought out design cues both inside and out that helped to make it one of Europe’s best selling vehicles of the 1980s.

Compared to American or Japanese offerings of the time period, the 1985 Citroen BX GT is like nothing else you could buy on these shores.

Citroen’s trademark hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension is present, and functional. This allows the BX GT to be one of the smoothest riding cars we have. More than that, the hydropneumatic suspension automatically adjusts to different loads, making sure that no matter what you’re doing, it maintains its character. That character is one of a fun to drive car.

The 5-speed manual transmission makes this quirky vehicle the perfect choice for those looking to be different and enjoy the open road in comfort. With a 1.9 liter 4 cylinder engine, fuel economy is good to boot. Rack-and-pinion steering ensures precise feedback and control at all speeds.

Inside, the Citroen BX GT is just as you might expect a French car to be. The thick single-spoke steering wheel draws your eyes in. The single-spoke design allows for easy viewing of the instruments. It’s just the first of many hints that beneath its plastic body panels (which don’t rust), lies a true driver’s car.

In the brochure, Citroen advertised that the plastic panels were 30% lighter than steel, making the care more efficient and faster due to weight savings. The BX GT also has a drag coefficient of just 0.34, and aerodynamics were such a concern in the building of this car that even the single wiper blade was selected due to its impact of at-speed aero.

Every essential function of the car is placed right next to the steering wheel. The thought process was such that a driver of a BX GT would never have to remove his or her hands from the wheel in order to operate the car — because you’re far too busy enjoying the open road to bother with that. With truly innovative thought, the wipers, horn, hazard flashers, headlights, turn signals, and more are at a finger’s reach, should you need to use them.

Come break away from the crowds and visit us at Blue Marlin Motors USA to take a look at this uncommon car today. As Citroen stated: technology has certainly never looked better.
