DS 5 Moon Dust and DS 21 Pallas Show Cars Bring French Style to Geneva

Citroën’s now standalone luxury brand DS has revealed two very different show cars at the Geneva Motor Show: the 5 Moon Dust and the DS 21 Pallas.

Showcasing the customizing potential of the brand’s flagship, the DS 5 Moon Dust features a textured matt grey aviation-style bodywork combined with a special-finish chrome trim that give the car a spectacular look. At the front, the chrome touches are very bright, contrasting with other selected components finished in dark chrome.

The “DS Wings” radiator grille features a unique design that highlights the DS monogram, with its outline extending into the DS LED Vision headlights.

Inside, the DS 5 Moon Dust also gets enhancements such as the waxed brown leather with “watchstrap” stitching, door panels in pleated silk and trim in solid Macasser ebony.

The DS 5 Moon Dust is powered by a diesel hybrid engine sourced from the facelifted production model. The Hybrid 4X4 Diesel powertrain combines an HDi diesel engine with an electric motor that powers the rear wheels.

Combined system output is 200PS (197hp), with CO2 emissions estimated at below 100 g/km. The model returning 3.5 l/100 km (80 mpg UK or 66.6 mpg US) on a combined cycle.

The other show car on display is a very interesting DS 21 Pallas brought up to date with colors and materials used today by the DS brand. A tribute to the iconic 1955 Citroën DS, which turns 60 this year, the DS 21 Pallas features the Ink Blue body color (the launch color of the facelifted DS 5) and the same semi-aniline leather found in the top-end versions of today’s DS models. The show car was built by the staff at the DS Style Centre.
