Group B Cars from a Distinguished Private Collection
Citroën built a mere 62 units of the BX 4TC, the French automaker’s entry into Group B rallying. Of those approximately 40 survive, according to the BX 4TC International Register, making the model one of the rarest European performance cars of the 1980s. It was also one of the most unusual. The powerful turbocharged engine was placed ahead of the front axle, and the car combined four-wheel drive with the famous Citroën hydraulic suspension for a unique and thrilling driving experience.
The BX 4TC International Register also notes that this example was completed on January 15, 1986, and was the second 4TC manufactured. It went directly to Finn Jørgensen Automobiler, a Citroën agent in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the BX 4TC was put on display at its main showroom and used very sparingly. In late 2002, the car was sold to Christian Martin Nordlund, also of Copenhagen, who maintained it fastidiously while storing it in his heated garage. The current owner purchased the car in July 2015 after having searched for years for the best 4TC he could possibly find.
Today, the consignor notes that this very rare Citroën retains its original paint, which displays an appealing light patina in areas, as well as an extraordinarily well-preserved interior. It is an original and authentic 1980s homologation car and one of the rarest and most fascinating of all Group B machines.
