Jean-Pierre Jarier In the same hands for 24 years Ready to hit the track During the 1980s, touring car cham - pionships were hugely popular in Europe. The German DTM, the British BTCC and the French Superpro - duction gave manufacturers, supported by their dealers, the opportunity to showcase their innovative technologies. The AX Turbo Superproduction program was launched in 1987, one year only after the presentation of the small car at the Paris Motor Show.

The model that interests us today is the 1988 model, developed especially for Jean-Pierre Jarier. Unique, our AX is equipped with the 1600cc 16-valve turbocharged engine with a second camshaft, producing 480 hp!
