    Looks fast!
    Nice but I don't know about the back end - doesn't look very "DSish"

    Looks like the rear arm bearings need doing already!

    Rear end looks like that of an SM.

    With the other retro-mobiles on the road this almost seems a possibility...

    Probably just another proto-type never to be seen gracing the roads.

    Would it ever stack up to the original though??

    It would have to have some pretty keen technology under the skin - beginning with 4WD.

    Not sure about the 'micro-indicators' on the roof line - either have them or not I reckon - they look silly when they are that small.

    Looks like the issue from an orgy between a current BMW mini a volvo electric experimental or c70 and a d special that just happened to be passing by . If you cann't be original why bother

    I wonder whether this is related to the technical sketch(es) drawn by some design students (I think) in New Zealand (I think...) about 6 or 7 years ago. It was a really, really beautiful design, and probably what the C5 *should've* looked like. It's probably on the Citroenet site somewhere, but I've had no luck trying to locate it again. From memory it looked very, very similar to that, but it was only a front quarter drawing, so no idea whether the rear would've had that ungainly SM style.

    I've had as much luck finding the drawing as I've had trying to find the old Bonneville salt flats 'Thunder Frog' DS image, somewhere on the web...

    Aha!!! I knew I'd seen something like it before:
    http://www.citroen-andre.com/
    Click Projects, then select DS of the future in the main window.
    A drawing, not nearly as detailed as the pics posted above, but it seems to have the same style rear end. Turns out this came from the Ovlov design team!

    I like the roof line at the rear. I'm convinced the new mini gathered its roofline design from the 'D' series. Next time you see a new mini, have a look. At the right angle and you will see it. It just goes to show how modern the original 'D' design was - this car looks better than anything on our roads at present.
