TZD Question

Post by m_2975 »

Hello there gentlemen (and ladies if there are any),

Just a question to find out if there is such thing as a TZD Turbo Automatic?

Nope. Citroën never built a turbo diesel automatic. Such a car does not exist from the factory.

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Nah, there was a rumour going round that this one manned army of brilliance had built one, but I think it's just a myth.. :wink:

Thanks....It would be a great car IMO. TD auto's seem to really harness all that low end torque. Had a spin in a 307TD auto and they pull fantastically. I remember the last TD I drove in was a Xantia, manual though and it pulled like a train up this massive hill.

The electronic auto would do a great job at it too.

Nah, but it'll be the next engine in the TD.
Except it wont be a multi valve head.
