A friend sent this to me, any idea what kind of car this is? It looks like it's RHD, doesn't it?

Citroen DS-series (from France), the last style with double headlights built from roughly 1967/68 to the end of the production run in 1975 I think.

I think they made some of them in RHD for the U.K. market.

Definately a Citroen DS. Very advanced car for it's time. I always liked the looks of them.

They did indeed produce them in right hand drive for the UK market. I have always wanted one of these, absolutely gorgeous, and very advanced. I believe that some early cars may have been built in Slough, in England. If you have ever watched "Rugrats", Tommy's father Stu drives one.

They sold em RHD in Oz too, the hydro pneumatic suspension they use must still be one of the most advanced ever thought of, short of computer controled exotica.

True enough.....I keep forgetting that the Aussies drive on the correct side of the road as well. Right about that suspension......wonderful.

The DS Citroens are sometimes called the Goddess by those who love them. It's a pun on the name. In French, DS is pronounce Day Ess, which sounds like, deesse, which is French for goddess.

That's not the only Citroen with a punny name.. The 2CV has been dubbed Deux Chevaux (sp?)... Two horses.

2CV was the original horsepower put out by that little flat twin. Renault had a 4CV model, four horsepower.
