Citroen DS 21 Cabriolet 1970Having produced cabriolets from DS models for its own account since October 1958, the coachbuilder Henri Chapron was commissioned to develop a Citroen DS Cabriolet production model.

Following the design of three prototypes, the new car was unveiled in October 1960 at the Paris Motor Show. The meticulous finish of the purely styled cabriolet included full-leather upholstery and, from August 1964, features characteristic of the DS Pallas, such as additional headlamps and special wheel covers.

A high-end model retailing for almost twice as much as the DS saloon, the Citroen DS Cabriolet remains a benchmark in automotive aesthetics and refinement.
