The special-order Citroen DS Decap was an extremely elegant machine. To many today, it's the ultimate DS
While a few European coachbuilders decapitated DSs, it was the guillotine work of Henri Chapron that was considered the most stylish and elegant – so much so that Citroën added his cars to their catalogue in 1961. The mechanics and any improvements mirrored those of the saloons but the looks were far more eye-catching, with the open-top, two-door format and long, sloping tail giving an almost sports car look. However, at twice the price of the saloon, the DS cabriolet needed to be special. Only 1365 were officially built.
