Citroen model 'named most beautiful'

Fri, 06 Feb 2009
Motorists who have dreamt about buying a car which would make heads turn may be surprised to learn the Citroen DS has been named the most beautiful vehicle of all time.

A Classic & Sports Car poll of some of the world's top automotive designers saw the model clinch top spot, ahead of rivals such as Ferrari and Aston Martin.

The judging panel included Giorgetto Giugiaro - Car Designer of the Century - and Jaguar's design director Ian Callum.

Overall Ferrari models received the most votes, but participants could not agree on which of the Italian manufacturer's machines was best, allowing the Citroen DS to drive away with the title of most beautiful classic.

Commenting on the survey, editor of Classic & Sports Car James Elliott said: "The Citroen is a benchmark design, but we were still astonished that it came out on top when you look at the sexiness and values of some of its rivals."

Meanwhile, the victorious manufacturer recently announced plans to reinvent itself.
