Immaculate 1973 Citroen DS Super 5 Ready To Be Auctioned Off

Believed to be the finest Citroen DS in the world, this 1973 Super 5 will be auctioned at Blenheim Palace on Saturday, September 3rd for anywhere between £75,000 and £90,000.

The story behind this car is that after it was built, it didn’t even need to leave the dealership in order to find its first owner – the CEO of the supplying dealership, who has since remained the sole owner of the car.

This right-hand drive DS is wearing Blanc Meije (period white), featuring its original Red Targa upholstery on the inside. Also, because the owner entered it into multiple concours level shows and competitions, the DS walked away with over 200 total awards.

These include being National Champion at both the Welsh Benson & Hedges Concours and Popular Classics Roadshow, as well as victories at the Scottish Benson & Hedges Concours, NEC show and the Maguiars Concours – among others.

It it said that the car even has its own television career after appearances on both Top Gear and Fifth Gear in the UK, and that it has been offered a permanent place at the national Citroen Museum in France.

“Words are not adequate to convey the condition of this important piece of motoring history, it simply must be seen to be believed,” said Nick Whale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions. “This DS is the kind of car that really gets people excited, and we’re delighted to be offering a car of this staggering quality and reputation in our sale. It’s one of the star cars in the Salon Privé Sale and fits in perfectly as part of our most exclusive sale.”
