By buying this C6, you offer yourself the services of a presidential car, but also, you make a donation to the association l'étoile de Martin, since all the profits will be given to them.Benzin

The car has its 4 original rims in good condition, with tires in very good condition (Michelin Primacy 4, 3.000 km). The car brakes normally and the seller did not notice any suspicious noises. It has recently had a wheel alignment. The hydraulic suspension system has been partially repaired. A hydraulic hose has been replaced, its connection at the top of the right front shock absorber is oozing slightly.
Also, one of the suspension system hoses is slowly leaking. This results in oil drops falling on an intake pipe and then on the right cardan shaft. The oil can then splash onto a part of the exhaust system. The seller advises replacing it as a safety measure.
The seller is a private individual located in France near Metz (57000). The car will be sold with its French registration, a favorable CT of less than 6 months and an autograph of François.
The vendor can provide 4 additional rims (without wheel centers) equipped with 2 continental tires in good condition, 2 liters of LDS and a fire extinguisher.
