Citroën CX Book Now in English

Publisher Citrovisie is offering an English translation of the book “Citroën CX, aerodynamic elegance”.

The book first appeared in Dutch in 2014 and has been reprinted four times. There is also a French translation that has been reprinted twice. Over the years, the CX book has become the de-facto resource publication for the CX. However, the call for an English version remained so strong that author Michael Buurma and publisher Thijs van der Zanden joined forces with translator and Citroën expert Julian Marsh.

It is almost encyclopaedic, with great attention to detail and with hundreds of images, most of which have never been published before. The creation and evolution of the CX is discussed by model year and by type, also including the models that never got beyond the drawing board: a five-door CX, numerous never realized interior designs, a CX GTi with a diesel engine and an extended CX Pallas, to name but a few. Overviews with technical data, chassis numbers, body colours plus sales figures complete the picture making it an indispensable reference for the real Citroën lover.   

It also contains a Foreword by Pierre Leclercq, head of Citroën design.

The book is available in a standard version of € 44.95 and a limited Prestige Edition of € 59.95. The latter has a different cover, a more luxurious finish and is signed by the author. The Prestige Edition is intended for the real collector and is printed in an edition of only 100 hand numbered copies.    

 Published by Citrovisie in the Netherlands , it is 328 pages, 22 x 24 cm, hard cover, full colour 

ISBN 978-90-831417-4-9
