Citroën BX 16 TRS 1983 Vallelunga Red 1:18
At the time of its launch, the 16 TRS was the top of the range, immediately recognisable by its rear quarter panel with smoked glass and its numerous interior fittings.
In order to pay tribute to the hydraulic suspension of the BX, Norev equipped the miniature with a modular suspension system allowing to have 3 levels: the low position representative of the car at "rest", a position in road mode and a last position in crossing mode. The change from one position to the other is done under the chassis with the possibility of using a tool provided to facilitate the manoeuvre.
The long-awaited replacement for the GSA made its appearance in September 1982 at a launch with great fanfare at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. "It lives, it dreams, it makes you dream, the BX", it is with these words full of enthusiasm that the XB project, which became the BX commercially, was presented, a resolutely modern 5-door saloon.
It is the first 100% PSA creation following the marriage between Peugeot and Citroën. The design was carried out at the Vélizy-Villacoublay technical centre using the most modern technologies such as CAD, meshing, photoelasticity, etc.
The BX will be produced in the Rennes la Janais factory.
The lines of the BX are a witness as well as a relic of the Italian bodywork of the 1970s. Born at Bertone by the hand of the great Marcello Gandini. This angular style, which was very innovative at the time, was to mark all production for a decade.
