The DS-X Concept Is A Futuristic Sports Car Split In Two Parts – And Two Posts

Right now, DS has some pretty intriguing models in its range, including the DS 3 Crossback and the larger DS 7 Crossback. A vehicle which DS doesn’t have in its lineup, however, is a sports car.

The DS-X Concept is an attempt to visualize how such a model would look. Their creation, takes the idea of a two-door sports car and displays how a very advanced sports car might look in 2035.

Unlike virtually every car on the market, the DS-X Concept doesn’t have a normal cabin. Instead, the passenger sits in an enclosed section while the driver sits exposed to the elements just like in a Speedster. It looks futuristic, but it’s not something we can see being adopted by anyone.

The bodywork of the DS-X Concept has also been split into two halves. The one accommodating the driver includes a dedicated front grille offset from the center of the car, while the passenger side of the fascia incorporates a large opening that reveals the front wheel. At the back, the two parts merge into one, with the driver’s side being by far the larger one. The car’s unique shape is perhaps best viewed from above as it shows the angle at which the front and rear sit.

Will such a vehicle ever exist in production form? The answer is probably no, but we do always enjoy seeing unique twists on traditional automobile design.

Ed’s Note: Brad was so smitten with the delicious design of this concept, that he forgot it was actually launched in April 2018. Thus, this is the second time we’ve posted an article about the, admittedly very interesting, DS-X.

    If PSA had Lamborghini or Ferrari in its portfolio, this thing could have been made into a one-off.

    I didn’t see the article first-time-around. So I’m glad it got a repost! Even concept cars are becoming homogenised at present, so it’s nice to see something very idiosyncratic and out-there.
