The Appeal

It's no wonder that so many people still clamour for the Citroën DS. These cars are a mainstay of automotive development - and just as important in the world of design. Futuristic, innovative and offering some of the best driving qualities in the business, the DS was ahead of its time - and still looks like something out of a science fiction film today.

This particular car, with its Scarab Brown exterior and sky orange interior, is a fine example of the model. It has been well maintained by its second registered owner since 2005, with regular oil changes and tyre replacements. The car has taken part in major events such as the 50th anniversary of the DS in Paris and the 60th anniversary of Citroën at Montlhéry.

Solid, attractive and available in a very appealing colour, we have no doubt that this charming example of the D-Super will attract plenty of attention - whether on the road or at the latest motor show.
