Car Catcher: The Funkiest Citroën?

This 1971 Citroën D Super could be the funkiest–and some would even say the most beautiful–car you’ll ever own. The iconic lines of this futuristic Bertoni design, complete with aerodynamic features like side skirting, caused a stir when Citroën debuted the model line in 1955 at the Paris Auto Show, where it set a sales record that stood until Tesla’s Model 3 debuted in 2016. And just look at its exterior and interior colors: greenish-blue over a royal-blue interior. Does it work? Let us know what you think. Find the DS on offer from eBay Motors with a buy-it-now of $24,750.

Hmmm. Not sure how to feel about the colors. I could get used to them though.

What an aerodynamic car though. I wonder if one could find a stripped-out husk of one to build for the $2000 challenge.

The first time my father saw under the bonnet of one of these (1956/57) he said "If this thing had one more pipe it would be human"!
