First there was a plan to make a Coupé -version of Xantia also. This, unfortunately, didn´t work out. Maybe Citroën make a decision that there is no enought market for such a product. We can only quess about the performance of this beautiful Coupé. It may had have V6-motor from XM. In the picture-site is my vision of Coupé Xantia.

Heuliez designed in 1996 a convertible version of Xantia. Unfortunately this idea didn´t never see the day light. This Xantia had retractable hardtop.
