Did we just find the best Citroen car out there?!
We have told you about many classy and super-classy Citroen vehicles. Remember the new Citroen Megane Sport III? And the Tour Hyphen Concept? And what about all these Cactus Special Editions? We bet you remember. In fact, recently Citroen team has brought us many cool vehicles that deserved our attention. And then, most suddenly there is this 1973 Citroen DS Super 5, considered to be the finest Citroen DS vehicle in the world.
Tight, badass looking and futuristic (in terms of 1970s) this little guy still has that solid presence and catches the eye with neat shapes and expressions. Starting with this super aggressive face at the front, going through the clean and simple sides and finishing with scalloped back with dramatic design solution, we tend to believe that this one is actually a pretty convincing choice for the best DS vehicle out there.
This particular Super 5 unit is finished in Blanc Meije (period white) and comes with its original Red Targa upholstery. Meticulously restored to exceptional high levels and as close to the original condition as possible, the owner decides to auction this one with the aid of Silverstone Auction's Salon Privé Sale event, on Saturday, 3rd September at the Blenheim Palace.
