In 1978 the first "limited edition" of a GS is introduced. The car is called "GS Basalte", and is produced in a number of only 5000. The cars where sold in France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, England and Scandinavia. All Basalte's had a black painted body with red striping. The engine used was the 1222cc, from the X3. The car was equiped with a sunroof, red and black interiour, foglights, Pallas wheelcaps, radio/cassete player, and occasionally headlight whipers (France only). Because of the limited number of Basalte's produced the car has become unique. Only a handfull still exist.
