World Record Citroen DS23

If you can’t fathom laying down a fistful of C-Notes for a classic Citroen DS3, buckle your seatbelts. A 1973 DS23 Decapatoble just pulled down the most coin of any Citroen ever sold at auction, or at least that’s what the head of Bonham’s Retromobile marketing department thinks. While that’s not exactly Guinness World Records [...]

How about a little more news on the resurrection of the polarizing Citroen DS? The company has released a slew of official images of its DS Inside Concept, set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. In an odd move, the DS Inside Concept bares little to know resemblance to the Goddesses of [...]

Citroen has finally let loose a few juicy details on the resurrection of its fabled DS. Evidently the rebirth doesn’t just include one car, but rather a whole family of DS’s, the first of which will show up in early 2010. That model, called the DS3 will likely go head to head with competition like [...]

New Pink Panther 2 Trailer Shows Citroen DS In Action

When looking at the resounding success that was the first nouveau Pink Panther movie (with Steve Martin), it only figures that they’d want another turn at bat. The trailer for Pink Panther 2 has just dropped, and while the plot isn’t exactly crystal clear at this point we know there will be at least one [...]

Picture of the Day: Thai Goddess

You knew this was coming. Need another reason to visit Thailand beside the food, scenery and friendly faces? How about the fact that the place is crawling with Citroens? And not just any old Citroen, but the extra awesome DS. And you thought French imperialism had no upside… [Source: DS in Asia]

Flying Lego Citroen DS

The Magic of Internet Magic: Flying Lego DS

No, this is not a waking dream fantasy of mine come to life. Though it oughts be. No, some dude actually sat down and said, “You know what? Not just Citroen DS, but flying Citroen DS.” Hell yes! In addition to fission powered Cadillacs, the other technology we’re very sad not to be owning is flying [...]

Fool’s Gold: Citroen DS Station Wagon

For me, the Citroen DS line can do no wrong. While I like some versions better than others, it really is all good — from the Decapotable (convertible) to the 4-door to the Safari wagon, to different headlight designs and the Pallas luxury trim. They truly had it all, and the fantastic hydropneumatic suspensions are [...]

Citroen C6 Pallas

AutoExpress Drives One-Off Citroen C6 Pallas

“Va te faire enculer!” I say to the writers at AutoExpress in the U.K. They’ve gone driving in the Citroen C6 Pallas, which is a one off named for the luxury trim level of the old Goddess-era Citroens. While this particular customization is not to my liking much (baseball glove leather? black rims?) I love [...]

Awesome Aussie Car Sculptor: James Corbett

It might shock some of you that I was once pretty involved in the LA art scene. I even co-owned a gallery down in Chinatown. While that was a long time ago, I still have an eye for the stuff. Though honestly (and obviously), most of my aestetic oberservations have to do with four-wheeled hunks of [...]

My Friend Andy’s $950 Citroen DS

This just boils my blood. Anyone with an internet connection and a car fetish knows that I lust after Citroens. Specifically the DS, SM and CX. That’s why people email me amazing treasures like the DS Couch. Which I then promptly sent to my pal Andy. Why Andy? Well, Andy owns a CX. And a [...]

Say It Isn’t Sofa: Citroen DS Couch

If I had a shag pad, ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum. All day long I’d sit around and… Yes, so you’re looking at a couch made from a Citroen DS. Part of me is very angry, and part is filled with utter joy, but Charles de Gaulle is spinning around in [...]
