In-depth look at Citroen's idiosyncratic DS, for fifty years a design icon and one of the world's most controversial, radical, idiosyncratic and technically advanced motorcars.
The most radical of Citroën’s idiosyncratic offerings, the DS was sensational when introduced in 1955. Twenty years and 1.45 million cars later it was still technically advanced compared to most other cars. Revolutionary in driving characteristics and comfort, it remains one of the most innovative cars of all time and one of today’s great classics.
