Citroën BX Digit



The Citroën BX is a much underrated car, employing the advanced hydropneumatics of the CX and packaging them in an aesthetically eighties set-square hatchback.
My favourite version was the BX Digit, of which around 4000 examples were built in 1985. It was based on the BX GT (powered by a Peugeot 1.9-litre engine), but featured a revolutionary digital dash display, incorporating a multi-function on-board computer. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's spotted the similarity between this and the Lamborghini Reventón...
