    Default Abandoned CX Prestige (?) - Sans Souci

    There appears to be an abandoned CX Prestige C-matic round the corner from me. I Have just noticed it but it has probably been there for a couple of weeks - the scrap car dealers have seen it and have left their calling card under the wiper.
    It's in a tatty condition with rust on the doors and the interior has badly cracked seats. Steering wheel has a moth-eaten look. See attached photos.
    Does anybody here have any idea who it belongs to? The street has no history of Citroen owners so it is a mystery why it is parked where it is.Abandoned CX Prestige (?) - Sans Souci-image.jpgAbandoned CX Prestige (?) - Sans Souci-image-1-.jpgAbandoned CX Prestige (?) - Sans Souci-image-2-.jpg

    Maybe it's been dumped. It could be a 2400 injected C-matic. I've never seen that combination in a CX before (then again I've only ever seen a handful of prestiges too).

    I don't believe it has been dumped / abandoned. I know the Citroen-fancier who acquired it from Aldo (remember it was listed via eBay an also in AF classifieds) earlier this year and the intention is restoration. I think it may be a UK car via NZ ???

    Almost correct, ex NZ, but Hong Kong before that.

    Sans Souci.
    Right next to all that ocean salt air but perhaps the owner is, err, carefree...
