  • 53965 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Monaco event, 12 May 2018. Estimates:150.000 - 170.000 Very rare limited-production Chapron-bodied cabrioletThe more powerful DS 21 variant, with numerous original optionsBeautifully restored by marque specialistsAn exceptional continental touring machine, now as then Amongst the most desirable versions of the famed Citroën DS was the factory-authorised Decapotable, or Cabriolet Usine, produced by Parisian coachbuilder Henri Chapron. Chapron took up what the factory had not had the time or resources to do, and he produced his first two-door convertible version of the Goddess in 1958. For 10 years, from 1961 to 1971, Chapron produced 1,365 Decapotables to individual customer order. After official production ended, a handful of cars continued to be produced on a custom basis until 1978.Each cabriolet was hand built to the highest of standards, with handmade doors that were four inches longer than the saloons and on double latches; a tail that had been crafted as one long, sweeping panel, with a fibreglass boot lid; and decorative brightwork along the flanks. There were 15 paint choices, 13 shades of leather upholstery and three carpet colours available, allowing for 585 possible combinations.The example offered here is a DS 21, equipped with the optional Jaeger instruments, Boite de Vitesses Hydraulique semi-automatic transmission and Continental-Edison radio. It was originally delivered to a Mr Le Glouannec of Pont Aven, who maintained it until 1980, when he sold it to a Dr Pechery of Paris; the second owner installed a DY-type engine in 1983. From 2007 until 2010, the car was registered in England, by a Paul Duce of Ashingdon-Rochford-Essex, after which it was acquired by the present owner.In 2014 the car was fully restored by Automobiles Francaise of Berlin, at a cost of over 85,000, in Alabaster White over a black leather interior with black carpets. The car is accompanied by a collection of photographs and receipts from that restoration, as well as other documentation and appraisals between 1977 and the present day, documenting its well-maintained condition and, importantly, that it has always been an original cabriolet.This is a fine example of a most rare and desirable Citroën, benefitting from decades of excellent care and a superb restoration.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/MC18.
