|With it's advanced technology and futuristic styling, the Citroen DS took the world by storm in 1955 when it was revealed to the public at the Paris Motor Show. At a time when most cars were still trundling around on solid axles and leaf springs, the DS featured fully independent hydro-pneumatic, self leveling suspension; and other niceties like hydraulic power steering, power disk brakes, front wheel drive and a semi-automatic manual transmission. To shift the DS you simply let off on the gas pedal and flick a lever to engage the next gear. Even it's name is inventive, while appearing to be a typical acronym, it is a pun on the French word for Goddess (Pronounced Day-Ess). Over 1.5 million of these cars were made before they were discontinued in 1976 (only 33,000 made it to the States). The Cabrio is my favorite version and I will take mine in black, please.|
