PhotobucketThe Citroën DS was an executive car produced by the French manufacturer Citroën between 1955 and 1975. Styled by Italian sculptor and industrial designer Flaminio 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.
The DS advanced achievable standards in automobile ride quality, handling, and braking. 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, recognizing the world's most influential auto designs, and was named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car Magazine. - Wikipedia

Mais de 50 anos depois, a originalidade e beleza de suas linhas continuam marcantes − e foram decisivas para dar ao DS o título de carro mais bonito de todos os tempos, de acordo com uma votação promovida pela revista britânica Classic & Sports Magazine. O design belíssimo do DS vem de uma perfeita união entre o estilista e escultor Flaminio Bertoni e o engenheiro André Lefévre. Com esses dois talentos, surgiu um carro com design e aerodinâmica vivendo em completa sintonia. - citroen.com.br
