Citroën DS – The world’s most beautiful car

Filed under: Product Reviews |
This is a sumptuous photographic record of the Citroën DS in all its myriad forms. Launched as a futuristic vision in 1955, the DS family of cars continued in production for just over 20 years, evolving through two distinct styling phases, three key bodyshell types (saloon, estate and cabriolet), numerous specification changes and various powertrain developments, as well as some fascinating spin-off versions. Every detail is recorded in over 500 colour photographs in this lavish and elegantly presented book. With its sleek looks and advanced technology, the Citroen DS became a legend not just in its own country but around the globe. Now it is regularly voted one of the most significant models in the history of the motor car. Packed with breathtaking images, this book is a stunning visual tribute to a car like no other.
