Classic Revealed: Is the 1969 Citroen DS 21 the most beautiful car of all time?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 1969 Citroen DS 21 is perhaps the ultimate
French luxury car. It represents the best (and some would say worst) of
French Automotive technology, design and research and development. Think of
it as France's automotive equivalent of sending a man to the moon.
Here a short list just some of the unique features that 1969 Citroen DS 21
Adjustable and self-leveling suspension that allows the car to drive on
only three wheels an can raise and lower the car from 3 to 14 inches
- Headlights that steer up to 80 degrees
- Aerodynamic futuristic body design
- Hydraulic suspension, clutch and even transmission
This just a short list of features that make the Citroen DS such iconic
car. In fact many would say the Citroen DS features the world's most
influential auto design. It was named the most beautiful car of all time by
the prestigious Classic and Sports car Magazine.
Check out the this video as we show you what makes the 1969 Citroen DS 21
such an iconic car.
Rocky Mountain Road Trip in the Citroen DS!
This time we're taking this old Citroen on a scenic road trip through the
Canadian Rocky Mountains. I saw a video from car and driver, and I thought
it was bullshit the way they portrayed Citroens as unreliable, when all
they had to do was a little maintenance and the car would have been fine. I
decided to put my money where my mouth is and attempt a long-distance road
trip in my even older Citroen. I took no crew, no trailer, and no ugly
Escalade to pull myself around if it went wrong. I hope you enjoy this
little video of my adventure; Stella and I had a great time! A special
thank-you to the lovely Michelle and Julia for the help filming this video!
Thanks for checking it out!

Cold Start the 1971 Citroen DS 21 Safari!
Cold War Motors just bought this great old Citroen DS. It's a bit tatty and
will need a restoration (as soon as I'm finished my other one!), but still
runs and drives nicely. These old Cits are a bit grumpy in the cold, and
this one hasn't been on the road for a while now, so the battery was pretty
tired. I hooked up some cables to a better battery to see if we could get
her running for a last little drive before it gets put into storage. I just
love these cars, and I wanted a break (wagon) to go with my sedan. This one
is a standard shift with power steering and brakes. Looks like Stella
wants to go for a ride, too!

The 1955 DS cemented the Citroën brand name as an automotive innovator,
building on the success of the Traction Avant, which had been the world's
first mass-produced monocoque front-wheel-drive car in 1934. In fact, the
DS caused such a huge sensation that Citroën was apprehensive that future
models would not be of the same bold standard. No clean sheet new models
were introduced from 1955 to 1970.
The DS was a large, expensive executive car and a downward brand extension
was attempted, but without result. Throughout the late 1950s and 1960s
Citroën developed many new vehicles for the very large market segments
between the 2CV and the DS, occupied by vehicles like the Peugeot 403,
Renault 16 and Ford Cortina, but none made it into production. Either they
had uneconomic build costs, or were ordinary "me too" cars, not up to the
company's high standard of innovation. As Citroën was owned by Michelin as
a sort of research laboratory, and were a powerful advertisement for the
capabilities of the radial tyre Michelin had invented, such experimentation
Other models produced by Citroën were based on the utilitarian 2-cylinder
2CV economy car (that contained some of the most advanced independent
suspension chassis engineering in the world). The Ami also designed by
Flaminio Bertoni attempted to combine the styling of the DS with the
advanced chassis of the 2CV. It was very successful in France in the 1960s,
but less so on export markets because of its controversial styling, and by
being noisy and underpowered. The Dyane, was a modernised 2CV with a
hatchback, to compete with the Renault 4.
Citroën finally did introduce the Citroën GS in 1970, which won the
"European car of the Year" for 1971 and sold a spectacular 2.5 million
units. But it was still underpowered by a flat-4 air-cooled engine and the
intended Wankel rotary-engined version did not reach full production
The mechanical aspects of the gearbox and clutch were completely
conventional and the same elements were used in the ID 19. The gear change
control though, consisted of a hydraulic gear selector, and clutch control.
The speed of engagement of the clutch was controlled by a centrifugal
regulator sensing engine rpm and driven off the camshaft by a belt, the
position of the butterfly valve in the carburettor (i.e., the position of
the accelerator), and the brake circuit. When the brake was pressed, the
engine idle speed dropped to an rpm below the clutch engagement speed, thus
preventing friction while stopped in gear at traffic lights. When the brake
was released, the idle speed increased to the clutch dragging speed. The
car would then creep forward much like automatic transmission cars. This
drop in idle throttle position also caused the car to have more engine drag
when the brakes were applied even before the car slowed to the idle speed
in gear, preventing the engine from pulling against the brakes.
Directional headlamps were introduced as an option on the DS in September
1967 (standard on the Pallas model) for the first time on a Citroën.
Behind each glass cover lens, the inboard high-beam headlamp swivels by up
to 80° as the driver steers, throwing the beam along the driver's intended
path rather than uselessly across the curved road. The outboard low-beam
headlamps are self-leveling in response to pitching caused by acceleration

The Citroën DS is an automobile which was manufactured and marketed by the
French company Citroën from 1955 to 1975. Styled by Italian sculptor and
industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni and the French aeronautical engineer
André Lefèbvre, the DS was known for its aerodynamic futuristic body
design and innovative technology, including a hydropneumatic self-levelling
The DS advanced achievable standards in automobile ride quality, handling,
and braking.  Citroën sold nearly 1.5 million D-series during the
model's 20-year production run. The DS came in third in the 1999 Car of the
Century competition, recognizing the world's most influential auto designs,
and was named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car
