2 New Books about the Citroën BX

With its avant-garde dashboard, streamlined design, semi-concealed rear wheels and hydropneumatic suspension, the BX was a traditional Citroën. Its razor-sharp styling, however, was a radical break with all the brand’s design traditions. The BX incorporated new, lightweight materials, was the first Citroën to be designed with computer assistance and was a huge leap forward in quality.

Over the years, the introduction of variants such as an estate car, a version with automatic transmission, numerous diesel models and all kinds of sporty versions and special, limited series contributed to its continuous success. The BX ultimately not only helped the ailing Citroën company recover, but also went down in history as one of the most successful Citroëns ever.

Two new books covering the Citroën BX will be available in 2021, and if you’d like them, it makes sense to pre-order now:

Book 1: BX — A new generation of Citroën

Author Thijs van der Zanden describes in this book the history of the Citroën BX, from the first prototypes in the early seventies, until the last BX which rolled off the production line in 1994. Compared to Citrovisie’s first BX book, this new book has been updated with new photos and extra visual material. To meet the needs of non-Dutch-speaking readers as well, this edition has been translated into English by Citroën expert Julian Marsh.

Language: English
Author: Thijs van der Zanden, translation Julian Marsh
Dimensions: 22 x 24 cm, over 300 pages

Book 2: BX, a new generation of Citroën – série limitée

Citroën have built many special editions based on the BX: standard models with some extra equipment and often only available in a limited number. The book about the BX also exists in such a version: the série limitée. The same content as book 1, it has a better finish and comes in a luxurious slip case. Each copy is signed by the author. Be quick, because the série limitée exists only in one hundred numbered copies.
