Your spaceship has arrived: The spiritual successor to the Citroen DS?
Under the D5's Jet-Age facade is a transverse boxer engine mounted midship, powering an all-wheel-drive system. The mid-mounting and low height of the engine are said to enhance crash safety, as is the neo-retro bodywork. Inside, the inventiveness continues with 5 seating places, one centrally located and able to swivel between forward and backward facing. Nice touches are everywhere, like an electrochromic glass roof that can go from dark to transparent in 6 seconds, and a double-pane windshield for noise and thermal isolation. Powertrains are reported to pay homage to their forebears as well. Thus, the D5 will not be anymore of a scorcher than the DS was, but it'll be a heck of a nice ride while getting there. We're not sure how it'd sell in the US, but it appears to have a ready-made fan base in France. Hey, if it was driven by both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Brigitte Bardot, it could be a winner again!
