@ Mental: I'm sure it's an excellent rally car, Citroens usually are.

To be honest, I don't think it is too bad. I've seen way worse... And technically this Citroen is pretty much impressive. 220-power AWD hatchback in 1985, very competitive even today. I believe it was a hell of a hot-hatch. Of course, this is not an Audi quattro, but still a good rally-fighter.

If just Citroen made a modern successor to this car... 320-power V6, AWD, with manual tranny DS3 - would be a very serious competitor to the Subaru WRX STI and Lancer Evo.

I'm also a great fan of (unfortunately gone) Gr.B,monstrous machines that needed extremely skilled drivers to keep them at their best(Toivonen).This Citroen is also one of the rarest Gr.B machines,but i have heard of it before.BTW,not that it matters,but it looks horrible.

As I said it is completely unknown because it had the chance to race only one Group B race befor Group B was killed..
The great area of the scarry crazzy road going homoligation models ... Startos, Quattro Sport, S4 Stradale, 205 T16, RS200 etc.. a time that never come back unfortunatily...

I'm a fan of PSA's and I've never even heard of this one. The Pug 205 is the only PSA's Group B rally car I knew exist. Thanks for letting me know

Citroens Group B Rally car... presented in 1985 they started to produce the 200 road going versions as shown here, in 1986 they started to race Rally groupe B with it, the BX 4TC coule only race once befor Groupe B was stoped in 1986 .... this car never had the chance to show it´s potential and is one of the unknown Groupe B monster...
The later WRC success of Citreon with different models showed that they knowed a lot about grip and go...
