![CDATA[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. To a France still deep in reconstruction after the devastation of World War II and also building its identity in the post-colonial world, the DS motor car was a symbol of French ingenuity. 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. As with all French cars, the DS design was affected by the tax horsepower system which effectively mandated smallengines. Despite the rather leisurely acceleration afforded by its four-cylinder engine, the DS was successful in motorsports. The Citroën DS placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's 100 Coolest Cars listing in 2005. It was also named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers. This particularly handsome Citroën is an original UK registered righthand drive example and is fitted with a semi-automatic gearbox together power steering. Owned by the same person since 2006, the knowledgeable and enthusiastic DS collector has looked after this example exceedingly well and she presents in very good order throughout. Having been previously restored, this Safari has covered only 2,500 miles in the last twelve years. Finished in the delightful colour combination of Bleu Angora with Gris Palombe and Bufflon Gris vinyl interior, this Citroën is supplied with a V5C registration document together with some history. Presenting in splendid orderand sure to turn heads wherever she appears. ]]
