Description

Available again after a long absence, this book tells the story of the most radical of Citroën’s idiosyncratic offerings: the DS.

The car was sensational when it was introduced in 1955; twenty years and 1.45 million cars later it was still technically advanced in relation to most other cars. Revolutionary in driving characteristics and comfort, it remains one of the most innovative cars of all time.

In this book, Malcolm Bobbitt, a well-known motoring author and DS owner, gives an in-depth guide to the Citroën DS - its history, design, and specifications, as well as valuable advice for buyers and owners. This long overdue revised edition contains much new and updated information.

The author

Malcolm Bobbitt is the author of more than thirty marque histories and general automotive books, a number of which have been published as foreign language editions. As a regular contributor to several periodicals and newspapers, his work and photography have appeared worldwide. A member of the Guild of Motoring Writers, Society of Automotive Historians and Society of Authors, Malcolm is acclaimed for his books on Rolls-Royce and Bentley, which include a companion volume on the Silver Spirit and Bentley Mulsanne as well as an Essential Buyer's Guide to the Silver Shadow and T-Series Bentley, both of which are published by Veloce. Other Rolls-Royce and Bentley related titles include histories of the Crewe and Derby factories and a biography of W.O. Bentley.

Married to Jean and living on the northern edge of England's Lake District, Malcolm has an interest in all forms of transport. He also enjoys activities as diverse as public speaking, fell walking, classical music, collecting motoring ephemera and getting behind the wheel of his early British-built Citroen DS.
