CitroŽn GS and GSA limited editions



Issue 67 Spring 1982

From 15 April 1982, Citroen will market, in France only, a very special series of 1,500 GSAs: the GSA “Tuner”.

Intended for Hi-Fi freaks, this car is really an auditorium on wheels.

From the outside, the GSA “Tuner” reveals nothing of its true nature: it is a black GSA Club of the strictest sobriety, with 5-speed gearbox, tinted laminated windscreen and tinted windows, and front seat headrests as standard fittings.

The interior is upholstered in a speckled buff velvet fabric.

What really distinguishes it from other GSAs is its highly sophisticated Philips hi-fi equipment:

  • a set fitted in the radio recess, with automatic electronic tuning, built-in stereo tapedeck, right left balance, three wavelengths (short and long waves. plus FM. Output4 ohms (2 X 6W)

  • an equalizing amplifier at the back of the console with an effective output of 2 x 16W or of 4 x 10W with LED output level indicator.

  • a headset with a mini-jack adaptor (frequency range 20 to 20,000 Hz, sensitivity 97 dB/mW, resistance 32 ohms).

  • loud-speaker system: at front two middle-range tweeters on the facia (power 10W), under the driving seat a double-coil boomer* (two channels, right/left - power 2 x 15 W), and at the rear two units with a nominal power of I5 W, each comprising two speakers, tweeter and medium frequency.

* this should be 'woofer'.  The entire text from le Double Chevron 67 is clearly written by someone with little or no knowledge of audio specifications


Above and left and below- at the end of 1971, a few dozen examples of this limited edition “Voiture Sans FrontiŤres” GS were produced, bedecked with the flags of Europe to symbolise the car's international success.
