The number of votes was a little underwhelming, but the result is now beyond dispute. The Citroen DS is considered the most iconic French automobile by some of the wisest automotive enthusiasts in the galaxy – YOU!
It’s a deserved result. Whilst the 2CV delivers plenty of ingenuity and has the French version of the common touch, the DS delivers style, comfort and technical innovation in bucketloads. And let’s face it, all that liberté, égalité, fraternité stuff is important, but style transcends all, non?
Next week, I think we’ll cross the Channel and vote on Britain’s finest. Four of the five initial nominations select themselves, I think. I’ll have to put my thinking cap on for the last one, however. Either that, or draft in some assistance.
You should give some consideration to your nomination, too.
