About the DS

The Citroën DS, also known as 'The Goddess' is an executive car that was produced by the french manufacture Citroën between 1955 and 1975, our particular DS was manufactured in 1972.

The DS is well-known for its futuristic, aerodynamic body design, styled by the Italian sculptor and industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni.

The DS advanced the achievable standards in terms of ride quality, roadholding, handling and braking in an automobile.

Swivelling Headlights

The DS features four headlights under a smooth glass canopy, and the inner set swivels with the steering wheel as demonstrated in the home page video. This allows the driver to see 'around' turns, especially valuable on twisting roads when driving at night.

Hydropneumatic Suspension
