Description

In-depth look at Citroën?s idiosyncratic DS, for fifty years a design icon and one of the world?s most controversial, radical, idiosyncratic and technically advanced motorcars.

Synopsis

The most radical of Citroën?s idiosyncratic offerings, the DS was sensational when it was introduced in 1955. Twenty years and 1.45 million cars later it was still technically advanced to most other cars. Revolutionary in driving characteristics and comfort, it remains one of the most innovative cars of all time.

Independent Reviews

From Classic Car Weekly

THE Citroen DS is without doubt one of all the all time great automotive icons and is a true design classic. With its perfect blend of idiosyncrasy and utter logic, it?s a unique car that was light years ahead of its time and could have only come from the French. Even now, it remains fresh and more exciting than most of today?s so-called cutting edge designs. People tend to use that old cliché of ?spaceship styling? when they talk about the DS, but you can hardly blame them. At its launch at the 1955 Paris Motor Show when it was surrounded by the dull post-war offerings from rival manufacturers, the DS must have looked like it just beamed down from Mars.

The radical design of the DS actually drew its inspiration from one of Mother Nature?s most aerodynamic creations, the tear drop, although it also looks a bit like a streamlined egg with a flat base. However, it?s what?s under the body that really divides peoples opinion of this car. The clever hydro-pneumatic suspension has led to superlatives like ?poetry in motion?, ?magic carpet ride? and ?plumbers nightmare?. This innovative technology controlled the self-leveling suspension, steering, gear selection and brakes. In fact, the ride was so good that Rolls-Royce used the same system to compliment the coil springs and wish bone suspension on the 1965 Silver Shadow.

Written by Malcolm Bobbitt, this fascinating book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in this unique car. With 275 mostly colour photographs to thumb through, it?s a lovely looking insight into the models design origins and development history. A prolific member of the Guild of Motoring Writers, he has produced books on a wide variety of cars and in this one, describes the DS in great detail, explains its baffling technical specification and provides plenty of buying and ownership advice

With iconic looks that still captivate today, the DS is the choice of designers and people with an artistic temperament. This book provides a terrific insight into this extraordinary car and would make a fantastic addition to any motoring enthusiast?s library.
