The Citroën DS 19 was a revolution in the automotive world. Its presentation at the Paris Motor Show in October 1965 caused a great sensation. Just 45 minutes after the show opened its doors, the Citroën pavilion had already received 747 requests... by the end of the day the figure had risen to 12.000 requests.
The centerpiece of the technical innovations of the DS is a high-pressure hydraulic system that serves for starting, steering, braking and even the suspension, thanks to the placement of a gas-filled steel ball on each wheel. This hydropneumatic system, developed by Paul Magès, allows the irregularities of the road not to affect the bodywork, and the height of the bodywork can be varied with a corrector. The impressive futuristic look of the bodywork is signed by Flamino Bertoni, with a long aluminum hood and a plastic roof. The only known part in the DS is the engine, inherited from the Citroën 11 CV, although with a revised cylinder head design.
In 1965 the DS range receives a new generation of engines, whose most powerful version, the DS 21 with 100 hp and short stroke (90 x 85.5 mm), clearly differs from its predecessors, with long stroke engines and less smooth. The DS 21 maintains the characteristics of the DS19, that is, four-wheel disc brakes, front-wheel drive and hydro-pneumatic suspension, but it mounts a reinforced axle, cooling is improved, it has tires with a higher speed index (the DS 21 can exceed 175 km/h) and includes automatic headlight regulation.
The DS range remained unchanged until 1975 thanks to its avant-garde design, and by the end of production more than 1.3 million units had been built.
