1971 Citroën DS Safari
After 18 years of secret development, the DS19 was introduced on 5th October, 1955, at the Paris Motor Show. In the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken and orders for the first day totalled 12,000 cars, which was incredible. The DS was the first mass production car with front power disc brakes. It also featured hydropneumatic suspension including an automatic levelling system, variable ground clearance, power steering and a semi-automatic transmission and a fibreglass roof which reduced weight. It also sported inboard front brakes as well as independent suspension. Different front and rear track widths and tyre sizes reduced the understeer typical of front-engined and front-wheel drive cars. Despite the rather leisurely acceleration afforded by its four-cylinder engine, the DS was successful in motorsports and was placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's ‘100 Coolest Cars’ listing in 2005. This nice original righthand drive example of this iconic classic is presented in white with a black interior and comes with its roof top luggage rack. The car comes with some old MoT test certificates and V5 registration document. These were famous for their superior ride quality and many were the work horses of the ambulance services in the French and Swiss Alps. They still hold special places in many peoples’ hearts and remain extremely practical.
