Description

The Citroën AX is a city car which was launched by the French manufacturer at the 1986 Paris Motor Show. The AX was designed for lightness, with a ‘less is more’ philosophy, but with more conventional styling than previous Citroen models. In 1991, the car received a facelift and in 1998 it was replaced by the similarly engineered but more evolved Citroen Saxo.

The AX Sport derivative was produced between 1987 and 1991. The first performance version of the city car was equiped with a 1.3 engine and twin carburettors producing 95 bhp (71 kW), wearing iconic white steel 13 inch wheels which resembled those on the Peugeot 205 Rallye. The AX Sport used Solex ADDHE 40 carburettors until late 1988 and was then replaced with Weber DCOM 40s, just like the 205 Rallye 1,3. The AX Sport had a shorter inlet manifold than the 205 Rallye, to save room in the smaller engine compartment.
