The Citroen DS is one of the most iconic cars of all time so it takes a brave person to attempt to revamp it for the 21st century. However, French designer Jean-Louis Bui has had a go and has come up with something that is going to get Citroen fans talking.

Bui has close to three decades of car designing and now works at Paris-based prototype Etud-Integral. He made the decision to put forward a new image of the Citroen DS as part of the car’s 60th anniversary. As well as referencing the DS, Bui’s design also features elements of the SM and CX.

The DS was the first mass produced car to feature disc brakes and was the result of a collaborative project between Italian sculptor and industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni and the French aeronautical engineer Andre Lefebvre.

Over 1,455,746 cars were sold and the DS was a key part of Citroen’s line-up from 1955 to 1975.
