Description

The Citroën DS is a front-engine, front-wheel-drive executive car manufactured and marketed by the French company Citroën from 1955 to 1975 in sedan, wagon/estate and convertible body configurations. Italian sculptor and industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni and the French aeronautical engineer André Lefèbvre styled and engineered the car. Paul Magès developed the hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension.

After 18 years of secret development as the successor to the Traction Avant, the DS 19 was introduced on 5 October 1955 at the Paris Motor Show. In the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken, and orders for the first day totalled 12,000.

Noted for its aerodynamic, futuristic body design and innovative technology, the DS set new standards in ride quality, handling, and braking. The DS was the first mass production car with disc brakes. The DS came third in the 1999 Car of the Century poll recognizing the world’s most influential auto designs and was named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine.

This LHD example is presented in cream with a black roof and brown interior and comes with its Italian registration paperwork. These were the most popular company cars for executives back in the 1970s and offered stylish and comfortable touring driving with good performance.  A substantial boot and good rear seat space, meant they were ideal for the family. This is still the case today! A great opportunity to purchase a wonderful “ retro” car which was restored in 2010.
