Sold for €9,790 by Citroën, a few copies of the 50 units of the Ami Buggy are offered at dizzying sums on the classifieds sites.
Citroen Ami Buggy – When it was launched on the market last June, all that was needed was to 18 minutes at the Chevrons to sell this limited series of 50 copies, intended for beach recreation. Three months later, some copies freshly delivered to their owners find themselves already on the second-hand market, at indecent prices.
Observing owners of supercars putting them under glass until they increase in value has long been a quasi-Olympic discipline. More recently, we have witnessed the sale of limited editions barely leaving concessions, and already resold for 25% more than the list price. This was, for example, the case of the very first copies of Alpine A110, in 2018. But we did not expect this speculative fever to take hold of the city car without a license from Citroën.
2.5 times list price
Marketed at €9,790 in its Buggy configurationit is now offered two and a half times more expensive on the Bon Coin classifieds site, i.e. environ 25 000 €. Their holders hoping take advantage of the rarity orchestrated by Citroën, they did not hesitate to show ambition, price-wise speaking. But one wonders who will be inclined to pay such a sum, as friendly as this buggy is, especially since noises from the hallway suggest that Citroën could launch a second batch of its crazy machine, given the enthusiasm it arouses.
