C+C: Unmolested AX GT

During the 80’s and early 90’s, Citroen were synonymous with hot hatches. The Saxo VTS set the supermini world on fire, the BX GTI turned out to be a hooligan and then there was the AX GT. Now is your chance to own a piece of French motoring history.

Originally designed to be a Talbot, the Citroen AX became a strong seller in Europe, and even continued in production in Malaysia as the Proton Tiara until 2000. In GT guise,  nimble handling and an 85bhp 1.4-litre engine created a recipe for superb fun at bargain basement prices. The cheap price of the performance of course led to a spur in popularity amongst boy racers, who tended to enjoy wrapping them around street furniture; not before adding horrendously botched modifications.

This particular example available on Car and Classic is certainly a rarity. A needle in a haystack indeed, as this early example is completely standard, even sporting the factory stereo. Only one previous owner prior to the current, with only 1,000 miles covered in the last four years, caught Time Warp Tuesday’s attention, along with a full 12 month MOT with a clean slate in the advisory section.

The seller acknowledges that this AX GT is far from a concourse award winner, however given the low miles, early registration and increasing rarity, a nomination for Cheap and Cheerful has been awarded to the little white Citroen. At only £995 with a year’s MOT, there’s very little to stop you.
