The Citroën DS was a front-engine, front-wheel-drive car manufactured and marketed by the French company Citroën from 1955 to 1975 in sedan, wagon/estate and convertible body configurations. Italian designer Flaminio Bertoni and the French aero engineer André Lefèbvre styled and engineered the car while Paul Magès developed the famous hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension.Known for its futuristic, aerodynamic body design and innovative technology, the DS set new standards in ride quality and handling and was the first production car equipped with disc brakes.

After years of secret development, the DS 19 was introduced to the world at the 1955 Paris Motor Show. Within minutes of the show opening, 743 orders were taken, and by the end of the first day, orders totalled 12,000 cars. By the end of the show, the DS took in 80,000 deposits; a record that stood for over 60 years.

The DS placed 3rd in the 1999 Car of the Century competition, and 5th on Automobile Magazine's "100 Coolest Cars" listing in 2005 as well as being named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers.
