Citroën DS

Citroën DS, Livorno
The Citroën DS was a revolutionary car for its time, designed by Flaminio Bertoni. It was the first mass production car equipped with disc brakes. ‘DS’ is pronounced in French as ‘Déesse’, which means goddess.

Unusual design, yes. Most beautiful car ever? Uhm . . . :-)

Quite a car! I don't think I've ever seen one here.

I've always liked the quirky, and oh so French, looks of the Citron DS. It was at the cutting edge of technology when new. Had a friend who owned one, but I never did.

It looks like it is in great condition!

I don't think I've ever seen one of these in the flesh (so to speak) but I like it a lot - those sleek lines and gentle curves...it's beautiful!

I always thought they looked so futuristic.

My family owned one of these (exact colour too!) in the 1970s... it was such a comfortable, roomy car. My brother and I loved it when the engine started and you could feel the car rising up :-)

I have not seen this for YEARS.
Brought back some funny memories a long time ago. :-)

The owner must LOVE his/hers car.

I'm sure the car owner made up that parking lot. A groovy car it was back in the day.
