This is not a car, but an artwork

The basic structure of the DS is very suitable for transforming it into a Convertible. It is an extraordinary car with sufficient length, frameless doors, and a semi-automatic and - as of 1961 - an even more futuristic instrument panel. Anyways, there is just a plastic roof supporting the body, which is drafted according to the principle of frameworks and a body shape structures. There is not too much support strength that has to be shifted from the roof elsewhere. CitroŽn did not build many convertibles up until 1961.

This particular one was introduced also due to the strong commitment of the body shop owner Henry Chapron. It is - like numerous other coupes and convertibles, a special design. Unfortunately, the convertible was not blessed with impressive sales numbers, and was thus not pursued further.
