BX GTi 8v Turbo?????

Post by NZ16v » Wed Mar 04, 2009 2:24 am

Someone living over here in Auckland, claims to own a very rare FACTORY GTI 8v turbo.I havent seen it, but the guy who found it swore it was a turbo, not a diesel-and cant get pics uploaded just yet.Does anyone know of such a vehicle,say as a limited run in France? Its black with black leather interior,rare as hell over here just having leather, let alone a snail under the hood!!!! I think the owner is talking pork pies and has done it himself, or its a turboD, but still, am interested!!!!
Would rather be driving ONE 16v,than fixng TWO.

not heard of a factory one but thats not to say it isnt! i knoe the french had the 'sport' model which has the flared front wings, different rear arch covers and ran on a carb'd engine which wasnt available here so who knows!
couod also have been a citroen specialests toy?? occasionally they will build a demo car thats approved by the manufacturer which happened oveer here with the saxo when it first came out??

but any more details cant be a bad thing hey!

vanyy and luke may know a little more as both have delved deeper into the model history??
