Description

Available again after a long absence, this book tells the story of the most radical of Citroën’s idiosyncratic offerings: the DS.

The car was sensational when it was introduced in 1955; twenty years and 1.45 million cars later it was still technically advanced in relation to most other cars. Revolutionary in driving characteristics and comfort, it remains one of the most innovative cars of all time.

In this book, Malcolm Bobbitt, a well-known motoring author and DS owner, gives an in-depth guide to the Citroën DS - its history, design, and specifications, as well as valuable advice for buyers and owners. This long overdue revised edition contains much new and updated information.
