MOT Expiry:

As much a symbol of France as the Eifel Tower, the Citroen DS enjoyed a long production run and even in its twilight years was never out of favour with buyers seeking a large supremely comfortable, yet practically quirky saloon. Bonhams MPH is delighted to offer a left-hand drive DSuper 20 five-speed manual from the model's later years. Coming with partial history our vendor says the car successfully completed a 2300Km tour of mainland Europe and was totally reliable. With very good bodywork, paint and interior, and, equally importantly, very good engine and running gear, this example of Citroen's big saloon is every bit as usable as the day it left the factory.
