5 speed petrol. 2.1 litre in Midnight Blue with Pallas trim and leather interior. Styled by Italian sculptor and industrial designer Flamino Bertoni and the French aeronautical engineer André Lefèbvre, the DS was known for its aerodynamic futuristic body design and innovative technology, including a hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension.

Citroën sold nearly 1.5 million D-series during the model’s 20-year production run. The DS came in third in the 1999 Car of the Century competition, recognising the world’s most influential auto designs, and was named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers.

This car was assembled at the Citroen factory in Slough and was originally white in colour. It had one gentleman owner from new and on his demise in 2006, the car passed to his son. The car was much cherished, but with the arrival of a third child, space and funds were at a premium and the DS had to be sold in favour of a modern people carrier.

The car lived and was maintained for 20 years in Iden, East Sussex until it was bought as a partial restoration project and the full, ground up restoration was completed in late 2008.

This included the addition of the two front wings which were found and transported back from a scrap yard near Nimes. The car is used regularly and goes on yearly holiday trips.
