Revamped Citroen DS For The New Millenium

According to reports, French auto-manufacturer is set to release a new range of cars inspired by the iconic DS model, a move it hopes will tap into the public's lust for nostalgia and ultimately boost ailing automotive sales.

Citroen will also reveal a revamped version of its chevron logo in Paris in conjunction with the launch of the new DS

In line with the rest of the automotive industry, the car manufacturer is suffering from falling demand worldwide but it hopes that its new DS series will help reverse this trend. The new range will be aimed at the more affluent end of the car market and the DS initials will now stand for "Distinctive Series".

Citroen built almost 1.46 million DS cars between 1955 and 1975, impressing consumers with its technological advancements such as pneumatic suspension and power steering.
