Xantia custom

Post by fatherjack2002 »

Trawling thru a few Citroen sites i came across this subtle Xantia, there must be ++++++++hrs of work here and nicely done, not to sure about the alloys ? a nice set of Activa rims would look ok though..

whats the general thoughts on this ?????????????

I've seen this one before!
It's a Photoshop/Flash job I've seen it on a website with similarly modified cars.
Only one thing wrong with it - look at the rear wheels, they look slightly impossible to me :lol:

I think the hours worked were on a computer photoshop program :wink:

Sure, there's that red TCT estate on AutoTrader that almost fits the bill.
£389!! Chuck a few Activa rams on it and you'd get my optimum Xantia!
OK, I'm being realistic. Guess I could buy the FULL conversion off a 406
V6 24v MANUAL on ebay for £400 and fit that while I'm about it...

(yes: I realise a fella like me is aghast at all the rare 406's/coupes being
plundered for their engine like Activa's and Xm's...:( )

So. £900's worth of car and bits, mix in a scrapped Activa, and the end
result would be unique and priceless. Or worth £139-£410.... :D

But the thing wouldn't be exactly Dante Red or have a sunroof. :(
