I'd give my left .... pinky.... for that car. I love DS's... The suspension was really trick and so was the steering.

Admittedly not one of the most beautiful cars, but for those that know, one of the most spectacular designs of car-dom.

The DS was named as one of the greatest cars of the 20th century and many modern automobiles owe it for the innovations it brought to automotive manufacturing and technology.

I think they are one of the most beautiful cars ever built and the convertible model is simply amazing to behold.

Citroen may also be re-issuing the DS.

French Cars at one time looked good as well as quirky.
