The history of this car is unusual. Indeed, it was first sold new to a notary in Colle-sur-Loup, near Nice, who registered it with the number 1000 SP 06 on 22 May 1975 and kept it until 2012! For 37 years in the same ownership! The car still retains its original first registration document from 1975. Additional to this rare origin, it is one of the most desirable versions of the famous Citroën DS. With its 2.3-liter injection engine, it is the most powerful of the DS ever, and the Pallas finish makes it a veritable rolling lounge. It features tobacco-colored leather upholstery, which has been redone, the carpets are impeccable and the dashboard with three round counters, invites you to travel in style. Additionally, it is equipped with an optional, original air-conditioning system. The exterior is sober, with an older black paint, which gives the car all the chic that corresponds to its status. Long-range headlamps under the front bumpers bring a touch of sportiness, which reminds us that this car was a queen of the road, thanks to its streamlined shape and its oleopneumatic suspension providing comfort worthy of much more expensive cars. This DS 23 ie Pallas can only delight fans of this legendary model.
