    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Just goes to show that they can be just as weird on the outside as they are on the inside!

    The DS Camper - would be interesting to know if the rear suspension is hydraulic?

    If we were handing out prizes for 'bungles' this is surely this weeks winner! Somewhere out there in internet world is a D with a green shag-pile finish but even it would have to come second to this one



    Thanks for you pics, keep 'em coming

    Yes - This is where the DS ~ Deesse ~ Goddess pun becomes regrettable.

    Apart from the Ds tissier and the michelin test vehicle, this is my third favourite Ds, manily because I know how much it would upset the purists. Great conversion to a great car.

    Speaking of DS variants does anyone have a pic of the prototype DS Sport variant that was a pillarless 2 door hardtop?

    I've done google searches before and I only came up with the 2 door coupe that was similar/same to the ones that were rallied, and which in turn was similar to the mules whiih were tested with the V6 for the SM

    I saw a photo of such a car in a DS book years ago. It was black and had the SM carbon fibre wheels. It looked hot as.

    Yes, that is on the right track. Very similar but not the same as the photo I saw. The car in question had exactly the same mags as the SM, unlike the scans you have posted. And if I remember correctly the photo I saw was of very good quality and the car looked like a production model.

    OK, Graham, I see the Decap, looks like a standard-issue car, but what's that sack-looking thing hanging off the side? I don't recognize it....

    I thought this one deserves a place here, DS Coupe, the text suggests a V8 Maserati
    I know of the V6 Maserati as used in prototype Ds and the SM but not the V8?

    I believe the Cibie where larger and more spherical and the Marshal smaller and pointy. I think this model seems to be equipped with the latter.

    I honestly don't know- if I had anything intelligent to say, I would think it was a simple misprint. Getting the V8 in that shell would require some pretty serious encroachment into the cabin.

    And you know now why I have nothing intelligent to say.

    I have seen that car in person. Later on, he called and asked if I would repair it for him.
    Good thing I was already busy.
