Citroën C6 V6 turbo diesel

The car of choice for French Presidents, the C6 never sold in the numbers Citroen hoped. This ultra luxurious, high specification car with super quality interior and world class ride and suspension was never quite fully appreciated here in the UK. Unlike the more popular German executive cars at the time from Audi, BMW and Mercedes.

The Citroen just never quite had enough badge appeal for the UK market.

As a result, the few lucky people who now own these cars have all the benefits of a truly exclusive luxury saloon with loads of light and interior space and comfort at a fraction of the price of the competition. They have become somewhat of a bargain.

The 2.7 litre V6 turbo diesel has great performance and surprising economy for such a large car. These can be purchased on the used market these days at extremely low prices, well maintained low owner examples like this are now beginning to rise.

This still presents a fantastic opportunity to buy a car with ‘presidential’ levels of comfort that no one still really knows about. The once “quirky” design has now aged well, the cars will be surely developing into a true collectable modern classic.
