A 1964 Citroën DS 19 Decapotable – its shark-like, low-drag chassis (designed by coachbuilder Henri Chapron) underpinned by Citroën’s (cutting edge at the time) self levelling hydro-pneumatic suspension, power assisted brakes, clutch and steering.

Three careful owners and a full restoration later, it’s currently at auction, listed between €135,000 and €175,000.
