Citroen DS 19

The stylish and innovative Citroën DS (also known as Déesse, or Goddess, due to its French initials) was produced by the French manufacturer Citroën between 1955 and 1975. Almost 1.5 million of the DS models were sold during the 20-year production, and the car gained renown for its futuristic-looking body design, as well as the powerful hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension system it featured. Drivers and automotive journalists of the time praised the DS for its electric ride quality, better roadholding, handling, and braking than any other car of its time. Model history When the first DS 19 model was revealed in the Paris Motor Show in 1955, it caught the public's and the automobile industry's imagination right away. A record 743 orders were taken in the first 15 minutes, and the total orders for the first day of the show totalled 12,000. Its distinctive and aerodynamic body lines accentuated the car's space-age look. To better suit the budget of customers, a lesser-equipped submodel, the ID (another French pun standing for "Idée" or "Idea”), was unveiled in 1957. It had no power steering, as opposed to the DS, and a conventional transmission and clutch. In 1958, the ID Break station wagon was added to the line-up.
