Model kit STARTER KIT Citroen DS 19
At the CITROËN management, it is estimated that the standard of living of the French and Europeans will rise, the 2 CV has just been successfully launched and an heir to the 15 and 11 CV must be found.
It is the project "Voiture a Grande Diffusion" whose first sketches go back to 1945, which takes shape.
The direction is entrusted to Andre LEFEBVRE who resolutely opts for innovation in all directions.
The bodywork will be the domain of Flaminio Bertoni, the suspension that of Paul Magès.
For the motorization, Pierre Bercot resumes the study of the old engine D of 1911 cm3.
At the end of 1954, the project is frozen in its entirety. October 1955, the 42nd Motor Show.
The first thing that strikes you is its aesthetics, never seen before.
It will divide France in two: the "for" and the "against".
But the novelty is not limited to the bodywork, the hydropneumatic suspension ensures an unequalled comfort with four independent wheels, the plastic becomes an important element of the bodywork with the roof and the rear window as well as the light alloys for the hood.
There are many new details: from the single-spoke steering wheel to the spindle-shaped indicators and the doors without window pillars.
