About this Citroen DS

ARRIVING IN AUGUST

Launched at the Paris motor show in 1955, the Citroën DS shocked the world with its aerodynamic design and innovative technology and it is reported that in the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken and almost 12,000 in the first day! A symbol of French ingenuity, it was a spaceship by the standards of the time and it was manufactured from 1955 through to 1975.

The Citroën DS featured many innovative features and was the first mass-production car with front Disc Brakes, Hydropneumatic and Independant Suspension including an automatic self-levelling system, Power Steering, a fibreglass roof which reduced weight and consequently its centre of gravity and new radial tyre technology which the engineers exploited through its parent company Michelin.

There are very few cars manufactured today that can match the ride and comfort of a Citroën DS and it was an unlikely winner of the Monte Carlo Rally in 1959 and controversially again in 1966 due to the hydro pneumatic suspension coping so well over rough terrain.

The Citroën DS was placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's '100 Coolest Cars' listing in 2005 and was also named one of the most beautiful cars of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers.

The South African produced cars were initially built in Johannesburg, but production moved to Port Elizabeth in 1970 and the only real difference between these and the French built cars were Vinyl Seats rather than leather and a few other minor locally sourced parts.

This beautiful RHD Citroen DS20 was manufactured in South Africa in 1970 and has recently undergone a fairly extensive restoration to a very high standard.
It is reported to have only covered 66,376 Kilometers (41,245 miles) from new, but very few miles since it's restoration.
