et pour nos amis anglais, voici le descriptif issu du site de Artcurial :
Châssis n° HZ1988-3
- No reserve
- Unique prototype
- Only 20 km on the clock
- Potentially functional
Given the task by Citroën of producing the BX Evasion estate series, Heuliez tried out variations on this theme, which he proposed to the manufacturer. This raised estate car was shown to the director of Citroën at a special presentation in 1988, but was never seen by the public. The project was not taken up by the marque and this concept car will remain unique.
Unlike the production estate model which featured the rear doors of the saloon, this estate was based on a design which allowed for a much roomier interior. The rear doors, the superstructure and the tailgate are unique to this handbuilt prototype. The raised roof allowed taller windows which give the cockpit more light.
This concept car, finished in metallic grey has 7/8 seats. It is in excellent condition, as is the interior which is presented in a mix of Woolmark wool and chamois. Fitted with a 1.9-litre 4 cylinder TRD diesel engine, it has a five-speed gearbox. The odometer reads just 20 km and it has never been registered. This is a very rare opportunity for a collector of this marque to acquire a unique concept car in superb condition. The car is destined to find its place in the collection of a knowledgable Citroëniste !
REGISTRATION OF HEULIEZ PROTOTYPES:
Heuliez is a car manufacturer. As such, the prototypes all have a manufacturer's plate and an identification number. All the vehicles in the Heuliez Collection will be sold with a Manufacturer's Certificate.
In order to register these vehicles, we have received the following information from the FFVE (Fédération Française des Véhicules d'Epoque = French classic cars association):
- For vehicles that are more than thirty years old, an FFVE certificate can be obtained. Once an French technical inspection has also been obtained, the vehicles are eligible for French collectors' registration
- Vehicles less than 30 years old will need to be individually approved by the French administration DREAL and have a current technical inspection, in order to be registered in France
