Citroen’s style-centric DS division is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the original DS with the introduction of the 1955 limited edition range.

The DS 1955 special edition cars will debut at DS Week, which kicks off in Paris tomorrow.

The special editions will be available across the DS line-up, with the French car maker building 1955 DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio city cars, 955 DS 4 hatchbacks, and 955 DS 5 saloons.

DS hasn’t revealed any details about the 1955 range yet, though from the image above it’s clear the cars feature carbonfibre-look mirror caps and yellow DS and 60th anniversary badges.

DS CEO Yves Bonnefont said today’s range was designed to continue the revolutionary spirit of the iconic DS and renew the tradition of French premium vehicles.

“To build today’s DS brand we draw inspiration from the exceptional heritage of this legendary car, and take up the values it conveyed, of innovation, excellence and avant-garde design,” Bonnefont said.

“Specifically, today’s DS models excel in refinement, quality materials, and outstanding style, technology, comfort and performance.”

DS says the 1955 models will be built “in limited quantities for all markets”, including Australia, where they’re set to launch in the final quarter of this year.
