The most beautiful books for the real Citroën lover
In 2014, CX expert Michael Buurma and Thijs van der Zanden of Citrovisie decided to create a unique CX-book. This book has now become the standard work in the CX field. However, the call for an English language version remained so strong that author Michael Buurma and publisher Thijs van der Zanden joined forces with translator and Citroën expert Julian Marsh. The result of their collaboration can now be ordered.
In an almost encyclopaedic manner the creation and evolution of the Citroën CX is discussed. This also includes the models that never got beyond the drawing board: a five-door CX, numerous never realised interior designs, a CX GTi with a diesel engine… The book is amply illustrated with hundreds of images and is an indispensable reference for the real Citroën lover.
There is also a limited collector’s edition of this book available.
In an almost encyclopaedic manner, and with great attention to detail, the creation and evolution of the Citroën CX is discussed by model year, by type and down to the smallest detail. This also includes the models that never got beyond the drawing board. The book is amply illustrated with hundreds of images, most of which have never been published before. This makes ” La véritable histoire de la Citroën CX” an indispensable reference for the real Citroën lover.
For Citroën, the Oltcit and Axel were a disaster, but historically, they are very interesting. They are the very last designs without the influence of Peugeot. Moreover, the development history is full of political intrigue and industrial espionage between East and West. Compared to the first Axel book by Citrovisie, this new book has numerous new photos and a lot of extra visual material.
Author Thijs van der Zanden describes in this book the history of the Citroën BX, from the first prototypes in the early seventies, until the last BX which rolled off the production line in 1994. Compared to Citrovisie’s first BX book, this new book has been updated with new photos and extra visual material. To meet the needs of non-Dutch-speaking readers as well, this edition has been translated into English by Citroën expert Julian Marsh.
Through the memories of the grandsons of the founder of the garage, and countless photographs and documents kept by the family over the years, author Matthieu Turel sketches the story of everyday life in a small Citroën garage in the heart of France’s least populated department, the Lozère. The book offers a great impression of how the profession of garage owner has changed over the past hundred years. Highly recommended for every car enthusiast.
This book describes the history of the compact Citroëns that appeared between 1975 and 1985: the LN, LNA, Visa, Oltcit, Axel and the C15, a van model which was derived from the Visa. The development of these cars coincided with a period of crisis in the history of Citroën. Erroneous strategic decisions, financial problems, the oil crisis, the takeover by Peugeot, the search for a new identity…
In this book author Marc Stabèl describes the history of the Citroën GS and GSA. Through numerous facts and additional photos, some of which have never been published before, the development, background and historical context are explained extensively, as well as the evolution of all types from year to year. Compared to the Dutch-language book on the GS and GSA, which Citrovisie published in 2016, this English-language version has been updated and expanded by 36 pages.
In 2014, CX expert Michael Buurma and Thijs van der Zanden of Citrovisie decided to create a unique CX-book.

Essential reading for anyone looking for an original car book and a must for all Citroën drivers interested in the history of the marque.
