What would a Citroen DS premium sedan look like these days?September 14, 2020
The automobile designer has rethought the look of the French premium car Citroen DS – there are several images on his social media page showing the virtual “novelty”.
The Citroen DS has been a symbol of French luxury road transport for decades. To this day, it is revered as one of the most unique vehicles ever produced. The unique shape of the Citroen DS epitomized automotive aerodynamics and styling, resulting in an unusual appearance that transcends the times and still looks quite modern. Automotive designer Sang Won Lee, known on Instagram as sangtheowl, has decided to create a modern interpretation of the Citron DS, and the results are stunning.
Citroen DS was produced from 1955 to 1975 as an executive luxury car in sedan, station wagon and convertible configurations.
This front-wheel-drive luxury car was built to ride the rough roads of France and also offered engine options that were not subject to higher displacement taxes. The Citroen DS used a unique hydraulic suspension system that was able to withstand even the roughest roads and provide customers with a smooth ride. The Citroen DS was used for racing footage as a race car as it could hold the camera stably on gravel roads outside the track. The Citroen DS also excelled in long-distance racing and won the Monte Carol Rally in 1959 and 1966.
The Citroen DS is exactly what the modern car buyer needs with its distinctive style and drive to embrace new technologies. The updated DS model from Sang Won Lee retains the distinctive DS exterior while redesigning the design to create something completely new. The redesigned DS retains the design features of the original car while adding design elements borrowed from modern cars.
