Lot : Citroen DS20

Vintage, Classic & Collectors Motor Vehicles, BCA (22 April 2008)

From the earliest times, Andrť CitroŽn's prowess as an innovative engineer had been evident and the traction avant model, introduced in 1934, was a groundbreaking design and a true milestone car, remaining in production until 1955. Its successors, the DS and ID Series, were equally revolutionary and featured futuristic styling both internally and externally  a memorable feature being the single-spoke steering wheel. Throughout the production run, these models benefited from gradual upgrades of specification with the engine being enlarged to 2-litres from 1967. As with previous CitroŽns, these cars were also assembled at Slough in right-hand-drive form. So far ahead of their time were they that they were still seen as advanced when ultimately replaced by the transverse-engined CX Series in the mid-1970s. Dating from 1972, presented here is a DS20 which is a UK right-hand-drive example. Finished in bronze with black trim, the car is understood to be in very good presentable order, having clearly undergone some refurbishment in the past. These iconic motor cars have established a firm cult following and are now keenly sought by devotees.
