1954 Citroen DS (1:18)
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 suspension.
Hydropneumatic suspension is a type of automotive suspension system, invented by Citroën,which provides a sensitive, dynamic and high-capacity suspension offering a superior ride quality.
Citroën first introduced this system in 1954 on the rear suspension of the Citroen DS
Citroën DS also had hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension.[/b], power steering, brakes and gearbox/clutch assembly powered by high pressure hydraulic assistance.
So Many Firsts in this Historic Automobile enticed me to buy this NOT SO DETAILED Diecast scale model.Had to have this model in my collection.

Nice!! Another very important car. Second runner-up for the grand title of the Car of the Century!! And it is indeed very pretty!!
Are you sure this is a Maisto though? It looks like it might be a Solido.

Inside every man is a little kid who wants to play.
