Citroën ZX Rallye Raid Evo 2: a copy sold across the Channel

In England, a 1990 Citroën ZX Rallye Raid Evo 2 has just been sold by the experts at Girardo & Co.. It is precisely the C05 chassis which has been entered three times in the Dakar rally-raid , this in 1991, 1992 and 1993 as well as on other events.

It is a Dakar legend which was therefore sold by Girardo & Co., knowing that in 1991, at the wheel of this Citroën ZX Rallye Raid Evo 2, Alain de Ambrosino and his co-driver, Alain Guéhennec, finished at the sixth place in the most famous rally-raid. That same year, 1991, Ari Vatanen and Bruno Berglund made Citroën shine by winning the Dakar with the “sister car”. It should be noted that the price for which the ZX Rallye Raid Evo 2 chassis C05 was sold has not been communicated.

Powered by a 4-cylinder turbo (type XU15) with more than 300 hp, this Citroën ZX Rallye Raid Evo 2 will delight its new owner because, as you can see, thanks to the photos illustrating this subject, it is in in a perfect state.
