The Citroen DS

Back in the late 70s, as a 9 year old, I remember being sat in a pub beer garden with my family, when a futuristic looking black car pulled in. The car stopped and it lowered down and ‘sat’ on the ground. I was blown away.

35 years later, these cars still fascinate me. I’ve never owned one, but I think they are one of the most beautiful and stylish cars ever made, perhaps second only to an E-Type. They were full of the typical Citroen quirkiness. The high level rear indicators, the swivelling headlights and that smooth as silk hydraulic suspension.
