It was hilarious but what a shame to kill what looked a reasonable CX :cry:

Aye, they killed it a bit quick didn't they..not like that Toyota Hi Lux I watched them TRY to destroy..it wouldn't die! It STILL started/drove in the end..so didn't they keep it and put it on display?I followed that one with great interest as I used to drive the exact same model/colour in my old landscaping days, built like granite they are!
...sorry to go off Citrotopic :lol:

That "big, erm, Citroen thing" was a Citroen Cx 25TRi

Well, yeah, we know they are but the destruction of the CX aside, it was quite mirthful....

Maybe the BBC ought to have issued a disclaimer at the start of the programme...

"Citroenists of a delicate disposition are warned not to watch"

No doubt howls of rage on the Lotus and LR forums as well. I guess the Morris Marina owners were pleased it was not a marina that bit the dust this time.

Didn't I see something (maybe here even) about TG having permission to use cars for this sort of thing which have been ordered to be crushed?
Still a waste, but not quite so bad, in a way.

I'm rather sceptical about them shoving the CX over the cliff - I'm sure the Environmental Agency would have a very dim view of that coastal pollution.

I thought it was brilliant, i couldnt stop laughing.

Yes its a shame they ruined the CX, but really it was never going to be a car again so very little is lost there.

One of the best topgears in my opinion.
