8 Most Under Appreciated Group B Cars

Citroën BX 4TC

FIA Homologation no.: B279

It’s not a good sign when a manufacturer conceives, designs, tests, builds, races, and sells a car—before trying to buy them all back again. Citroën did just that, when its hugely impressive BX 4TC fell well short of expectations. In racing, it arrived too late and simply wasn’t fast enough: its engine was underpowered and the hydropneumatic suspension had a difficult time coping with all that weight slung out beyond the front tires.

As groupbrally.com notes, “The BX 4TC competed in one World Rally Championship rally, suffered three mechanical failures, was rolled back onto the boat, and was never seen again in competition”. Around 60 road cars were sold, before their owners were asked to kindly, uh, have them crushed.

  1. Ho avuto per qualche anno una BX di cui ho un ottimo ricordo, una delle migliori vetture “normali” che ho avuto. Mi era sfuggita la gruppo B, ma ricordo il tentativo di darsi una patina di sprint con la CX GTI… peccato.
