The DS Pallas is the more luxurious version of the DS; it is easily recognized by the trim on the body panels and the more luxurious interior (carpet on the sills, optional leather seats etc.). Other special versions of the DS include the all black DS Prefecture (voiture d’administration) for government use and the DS Prestige which had a separation “wall” between the front and rear seats.
Citroën built one special edition version of the DS. This version is sometimes called DS21 Jubilee and was available in model year 1972 only.
This beautiful motorcar is in fact an incredibly rare 1972 Jubilee model.

According to the DVLA there are only 4 cars of this spec left in the country.
In recent months all fluids have been changed, alongside a new ignition system including coil and points. In addition this to, the car has recently benefitted from a new battery, plugs and HT leads, new filters, new spheres, overhauled injection system and a new fuel pump, as well as lots of other similar jobs.
Bodywork, chrome and interior are recently renovated and are superb. Gearbox and hydraulics are also excellent. The engine is strong and ‘torquey’ and cruises along the motorway in 5th gear at 70mph, drives like a modern car, except in ride quality, where it is staggeringly better than a modern car.
This car was imported from Toulouse in France in 2018 by the previous owner, and he claims it had only one previous owner. The odometer shows a predicted 144,000 km. Unfortunately there is little history with this car, although the car is sold with the original service book and French log books.
It starts on the button and drives extremely well, turning heads everywhere it goes. With the
convertible versions now fetching prices in excess of £200,000, the saloons obviously are a fantastic
