New DS 5 Commande Speciale Is A Unique Customer-Made Vehicle

DS Automobiles are taking their initiative to provide customers with unique cars to the 2016 Paris Motor Show, with the DS 5 Commande Speciale.

The vehicle remains pretty much stock, except for the addition of a glittery deep black bodywork, wrapped up in a one-of-a-kind shade called Stardust Black, which has been specifically developed for the lucky customer.

Customers can change the whole ambience of their DS, from the choice of leather for the seats and dashboard, through to the exceptional materials used for the protective mats. Working with a designer, customers will also be able to create their own color for the bodywork. We have considerable margin for creative ideas“, said DS Automobiles’ Style Director, Thierry Metroz.

With emphasis placed on elegance, the interior carries “an exceptional plaited-effect finish on the Nappa leather“, which can also be seen on the central armrest, rear shelf, door panels, and instrument binnacle, joined by the metallic-effect leather on all the interior trim parts, including the door handles, steering wheel and roof.

Inside the storage compartments and on the protective mat, which is said to offer a “softness and thickness unique in the automotive industry“, the customer went for Ametryne Green velour, inspired by the DS E-Tense Concept. Adding the final touch to the cabin is the titanium gear lever knob, which has been produced using 3D printing and parametric design. Unfortunately the company has yet to release some photos of the interior.

The DS 5 Commande Speciale isn’t the brand’s first unique car, as the French fulfilled special orders for celebrities and politicians in the past. Projects included bespoke armored vehicles, such as the one built for General de Gaulle, and partnerships with Chapron coachbuilder.

    The DS5 remains a brilliant car!

  • Zimoune

    i don’t know how much the customer paid to have his custom DS5, but even if it’s a good car, that it’s just a Citroen C4 underneath, with almost everything taken from another car from the PSA group and fancy buttons…

    • JL_01

      Audi do the same.

    • Jp

      You’ve clearly never been inside of a DS5.

    • puh

      Nope, it’s built on C5 chassis

      • Sébastien

        nope it’s indeed the same chassis as C4/DS4, peugeot 3008 and 308


  • Mikeado

    What the DS 5 really needs is Hydractive suspension. They design this big relaxing un-sporty car and then don’t give it a smooth enough ride! If I bought one I’d at least put it on air bags (which is presumably a lot easier).
