EXTERIOR
This exceptionally rare early Xantia finished in factory original Venetian Red, (Code EJXCR), boasts a wonderful deep shine and uniform finish, commensurate with the amazing credentials of a one owner since it was four months old and 21,806 miles! All factory panels are amazingly straight and well preserved thanks to strict garage storage. There is some hairline crazing to the boot lid and a few carefully touched in marks by the conscientious keeper. All trim sections and badges are in superb order and Citroen main dealer number plates and rear screen sticker remain fitted. All glass and light clusters are factory fitment and manufacturer labels remain in the door apertures. The sometimes-overused term ‘time warp’ is entirely justified with this preserved French modern classic.

INTERIOR
Typical Gallic soft furnishings and sumptuous comfort are found in this stunning Xantia. The Sorrento Velour upholstery is as new with absolutely no wear or markings and all trim sections are perfect. The owner from virtually new was fastidious in his care for the car and this can be witnessed in all areas with the car being spotlessly clean. All controls and functions operate perfectly including the quirky coded anti-theft keypad and Blaupunkt 3030 RDS stereo. A refreshing contrast to today’s firm seats, this plush Xantia is an ergonomic indulgence.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 2.0i engine is developed from Citroen’s renowned XU-Series unit and power output is 123hp and 132Ib ft of torque to allow a top speed of 123mph and 0-60mph in 9.4 seconds. This well-maintained example performs perfectly and the extensive sound insulation allows for very little noise intrusion to the cabin. The engine bay is pristine with all factory plates, stickers, chassis stamps and panel stamps intact. Even coloured PDI dabs have survived! The central suspension level lever allows the car to be raised up high for navigating uneven terrain and lowers to aid with workshop maintenance. All hydraulic systems operate perfectly with spheres changed routinely and the car gently lowers when turned off to deliver the iconic Citroen ‘Stance’. The factory optional automatic gearbox is perfect in operation and offers even more serene cruising.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted wheels and hubcaps are fully intact with only light markings and all four tyres are matching Michelin 185/65 R14 with masses of tread. The ABS assisted braking system is standard on the 2.01 SX model and offer steady and assured stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 25th August 1994 by Citroen UK Ltd, Slough, the car was then sold to the only other owner, Mr Bryan Cedar when it was just four months old. He cherished the vehicle and the exceptional condition and low mileage of just 21,806 are very special credentials to car collectors. An impressive history folder containing a huge number of main dealer and Citroen specialist invoices to document the fastidious ownership this car has enjoyed. Every MOT certificate dating back to the first in 1997 further validates the mileage and the full Citroen book pack with service booklet is present. There are two Citroen remote keys plus master key and dealer fobs. To complete the history file is an original Xantia range brochure, Haynes manual and even the supplying dealer gifted fragrance pouch!

This rare early Xantia has been the pride and joy of Mr Cedar where it took prime position in his double garage, and the condition and driving experience is a credit to his devotion to the car. A true delight to traditional Citroen fanciers and surely one of the best in existence.

The creative design of the corrugated Cycolac ABS body was part of Citroen’s vision for a simplistic, lightweight and fun vehicle, one which would not dent and with pre dyed panels that did not require painting.  This example, finished in striking Green has been fully restored to a very high standard with all panels fully intact and showing only minor blemishes.  Being a RHD conversion the panels have been replaced with GRP items perhaps from an El Cid model.  A small cosmetic repair is evident on top of the driver’s door sill.  A galvanised chassis replacement ensures complete structural integrity and the underside is very presentable.  All trim sections are in great order, as is the fully removable surrey top in pristine condition with all catches and cords intact.  An exceptional example and certain to delight to Citroen connoisseur.

INTERIOR
Utilitarian brilliance is demonstrated from Citroen, a maker renowned for their forward thinking innovation and dare to be different mentality.  The vinyl seat coverings are perfect and this genuine four seater can easily be transformed into a capable utility vehicle with an impressive 880lb payload.  The floor coverings are designed to be hosed out should a trip to the beach ensue!  The original door chains remain fitted as Citroen intended and all controls operate as they should.  Ergonomically compromised but a smile on your face is guaranteed, good sense of humour required!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The air cooled two cylinder 602cc ‘pancake’ engine with its distinct rumbling soundtrack is instantly familiar, and with 33bhp it scampers along to offer a truly unique driving experience!  The feather weight bonnet lifts to reveal a clean engine bay with correct brown heater tubes displayed.  Total simplicity, superb owners club support and parts availability network ensure this classic is effortless to use and enjoy.  The 4-speed synchro City-Matic  ‘push me pull you’ transmission operates exactly as it should and being like no other car today.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Five correct grey steel wheels are shod in new matching 135 R15 tyres all round.  The manufacture stampings are clearly visible and the offside front rim shows some markings.  The front inboard drum brakes and rear drums whilst not up to modern capabilities perform well in such a lightweight vehicle.

HISTORY FILE
