Last DS Palm Beach Cabriolet on display at the Guggenheim in Spain

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain opened their Motion: Autos, Art, Architecture exhibit last month that will be running through September.

In the exhibit a 1971 DS 21 IE Cabriolet Palm Beach by Henri Chapron was spotted the other day by a Citroën enthusiast on a trip around the world. He sent us these photos of it on display.

It happens to be the very same car that we featured in our Citroënvie Showcase section back on Jan. 17, 2021.

At the time it was soon to be offered for sale. No doubt the present owner is very pleased with his purchase!

Also on display there are a 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic and a 1939 Delahaye Type 165 from the the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California.

  1. That you for publishing this wonderful auto!
    At last, Henri CHAPRON is recognized for his contribution to the automotive world as an artist !
    It is about time.
    He has been gone 44 years and his legacy is starting to be considered…
