I love Citroens, especially the vaunted DS. I also love Broughams. You might think the two would be at odds with each other, but both of my favorites–advanced European design and cosseting luxury–were perfectly entertwined in the top-trim DS Pallas, such as this example posted to the Cohort by regular r0b0tr10t.

The Pallas was the luxury DS, with soft Jersey cloth or plush leather seating, stainless-steel wheel discs and side trim, and other refinements.While the original 1955 model might be the purest form of the DS series, my pick would be one of these.

In late-model DS21 form, it was the über DS, and my favorite “Goddess.” This gray over navy blue example with saddle-tan leather is just about perfect!
