Citroën CX – no longer just a cult classic
We make no apology for raising CX awareness only a year after they last appeared in these pages. They’d risen then and our pay-off line was, ‘The trajectory is up.’ We weren’t kidding, though their sharp jump in value since then has far exceeded our expectations.
Collectively, values have rocketed by an average of 30% in the last year, at a time when most of the market has been feeling the pinch. That’s across the range too, not just for the GTi Turbo and Prestige models. Basic ones have risen by the same factor, though these numbers are for good examples. There’s less excitement at the ‘fix it’ end.
Dealers have spotted the demand and asking prices are starting to look daft. Or are they? A Devon dealer wants £9995 for a 2500D (D for diesel) Pallas that was restored ten years ago. Another wants £17,995 for a 2200 (petrol) Pallas with 67k. And French Classics have a lhd GTi with just 46,800 miles up at £27,950. Dare we predict further rises?
