The CitroŽn DS (also known as Dťesse, or Goddess, after the punning initials in French) is an executive car that was produced by the French manufacturer CitroŽn between 1955 and 1975. CitroŽn sold nearly 1.5 million D-series during its 20 years of production. The DS is known for its futuristic, aerodynamic body design, styled by the Italian sculptor and industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni, and for its innovative technology, including its hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension system.

The DS advanced the achievable standards in terms of ride quality, roadholding, handling and braking in an automobile. The DS came in third in the 1999 Car of the Century competition, recognizing the world's most influential auto designs. Winner and second place went to the Ford Model T, and the Mini, respectively.
