French carmaker Citroen used this year's renewed Retromobile Paris classic car show as an opportunity to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its famous BX models.
The company also showcased its futuristic My Ami buggy concept and showed the production C5 X to the public.
When the BX debuted four decades ago, it was at the Paris Motor Show, not at the Retromobile classic car event.
The Marcello Gandini-designed machine was the talk of the show, and naturally, it backed up those zoomy lines with characteristically adventuresome technology, such as its hydro-pneumatic suspension system.
Perhaps in 40 years the C5 X will be as well regarded. For now, click through the photo gallery to take a look at the cars.
