The Citroen CX is an automobile produced by the French automaker Citroen from 1974 to 1991. Citroen sold nearly 1.2 million CXs during its 16 years of production. The CX was voted European Car of the Year in 1975. It is considered by some enthusiasts as the last "real Citroen" before Peugeot took control of the company in 1976. "Real Citroen" refers to the trademark avant garde technical and design innovation, prized by marque loyalists.

Available models were a four-door fastback, a station wagon (estate), and a long-wheelbase model built on the break chassis. The CX employed Citron's unique hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension system.

Pictured here is a 1:43 scale diecast replica of a 1975 Citroen CX Automobile that was used by General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany Erich Honecker. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Kammeraden" - Erich Honecker (August 25th, 1912 - May 29th, 1994) was a German communist politician who led the German Democratic Republic as General Secretary of the Socialist Unity Party from 1971 until 1989, serving as Head of State as well from Willi Stoph's relinquishment of that post in 1976. Following the definite end of the Cold War, Honecker refused all but cosmetic changes and was ousted by the party in late 1989 and removed from power. Following the German reunification he successfully evaded prosecution for human rights abuses committed under his regime, finally settling down with his family in Chile in 1993, dying the following year from liver cancer.
