Xantia Activa V6 1 580km
COLOUR: Gris Quartz EYC
Model:The Xantia is launched in 1993. It is a true Citroen, with hydropneumatic and hydractive suspension, capable of firming up when driven hard. In 1995, the Activa is launched, the name is due to the innovative system called Systeme Citroen de Contrôle Actif du Roulis (Citroen system for active roll control). It allows flat cornering, a long-held dream for Citroen. Paul Mages had worked on this system from 1954, when designing the DS. In 1997, the Activa comes out with a new 2.9litre V6 engine of 194 Ch, also available in the XM (known as the ES9engine within PSA).The result: in the famous handling test (devised by the Swedish car magazine ‘Teknikensvarld’), the Activa is still the best in the world with 85km/hr, ahead of the Maclaren 675LT with 83km/hr.Due to lack of advertising of this model, less than 2700 examples of this extraordinary car were sold (production of all Activa models : 18,236).
