The Citroën BX 4TC is the homologation car for Rally Group B, the ‘queen of motorsport’ in the 1980s
This “relative” resembled the conventional BX in just a few details, because it had an extended track, an extended wheelbase and a longitudinally positioned engine.
Apparently, the engineers of Citroen were inspired by Audi Quattro, however, they failed to repeat their success: BX 4TC participated in several races with not so impressive results and was removed from production. Moreover, French were so unsatisfied with the model that all available copies were put under the press. They tried to buy back the already bought trucks at double price… The result of efforts is that about 40 copies of Citroen BX 4TC remained in the world.
