BBC Tribute – Citroën DS: A ‘goddess’ of a car

And if you notice the other clips that appear in YouTube listing, there is one that touts the introduction of the DS5.  In that video 5 lucky Brits won a luxury weekend in the South of France to drive and review New DS 5 ahead of its UK launch.  While Citroen tried to brand the DS name to the new model, they did so by rolling out 5 classic DS for the event.  It’s pretty obvious they stole the show.    🙂
