Description[]

  • You just received an urgent call! The lift is broken in the Eiffel Tower and 20 tourists are trapped. Your Citroën DS, with its hydro suspension, can take sharp corners on the winding Paris streets and get you to the scene in no time. As the city's top engineer, when you're onsite, consider the problem solved.
    —From the 2010 and 2011 Heritage Classics cards

Model History[]

After its discontinuation in 2011, the Citroen DS (1968) was set to return in 2017 for the Best of World Matchbox line for Toys "R" Us. It was shown in prototype form at that year's Matchbox Gathering only for it to be canceled as the license for Citroen fell through and Toys "R" Us filed for bankruptcy.
