    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    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.

    i dont think that car was a good representative... not because of colour... or history... or current economic climate or... or... or...

    FWIW it looked like a great car... but if the colour isnt your cuppa then the price becomes irrelevant... I am very happy with the price I ve paid for mine knowing that it ll cost me a tonne to get right.... but atlest it ll be done exactly to my standards and desires... whats the point of buying a car and keeping it original if you can not live with the colour... I reckon if it had had a metallic blue on it or if it had been a black car it would have fetched close to double the dollars... but that goes against the character of the car... it is what it is and on the day (that day) it got that price... a bargain and should make the new owner very happy... if he or she likes that colour...

    Hi Dino,

    I don't think the colour of the cars prepared for this movie are original colours. They were painted in this tone to meet the needs of the film-makers, and you get a different feel from them in the movie compared to real life. These DS cars are not significant for their originality, but are very interesting in a cultural sense due to their part in the film. Also, they are still early DSs and so are great from that point of view. Good condition, cared-for original cars will always hold more value than modernised / changed ones. Case in point the other white'ID 19' which is more like a D Special really that was passed in at an earlier Shannons auction and still not sold when I last checked. Looks like a very interesting car and good performer and has not captured the imagination of buyers. The original production colours of early D cars are all pretty good in my view. It's their derivatives that lose it.

    I agree...
    My reference to the colour was its connection to the film... If one changes the colour then the historical reference/connection isnt there any more... It is the cultural significance that kind of "locks" the condition of the car... This is why it isnt representative of pricing... I once 'almost' bought the "cedric" from the movie "the big steal"... The movie car was in poor condition... paint was terrible...ie it looked a lot better in the movie than it did in real life... same goes for this citroen. For those that couldnt make the connection to the significance all they saw was an "unoriginal" car that possibly still needed restoration and was adorned in what is IMOW "an interesting" colour...

    I attended the auction, it went very late in the evening, number 38 I think. Only two bidders, a young lady who dropped out very quickly and the winner. I approached the winner and when I mentioned that he had got a bargain his reaction was that he thought that it was, "An OK price but not cheap, it's a bit rough inside". He didn't appear to know of its film star past. He owned a DS23 many years ago and has always wanted another DS as a weekend car. Hopefully it will remain in the CCCV as he intends to put it on club plates.
