A Classic Reimagined: The Original Vehicle

The original vehicle that this precise miniature model is based on is the famous Citroën DS21 Cabriolet Palm Beach, which dates back to the late 1950s. Designed by André Lefèbvre and Flaminio Bertoni, the Citroën DS was a groundbreaking sedan that first hit the roads in 1955, showcasing innovative technology and avant-garde design that revolutionized the automotive world. The specific generation of the Citroën DS21 was produced from 1967 to 1971, with the Henry Chapron conversion to a cabriolet being an exclusive variant known for its stylish build and luxurious comfort. The Citroën DS21 is famous for its hydropneumatic suspension system, providing exceptional driving comfort.

Equally notable is the technical setup of the Citroën DS21, featuring a 2.1-liter (129 cubic inches) engine delivering approximately 109 horsepower. The car incorporates a semi-automatic gearbox, an innovative feature for its era. Unique aspects like the single-arm suspension and adjustable ride height set the Citroën DS21 apart as a technical pioneer. Consider that this technological advancement occurred during a period when significant historic events like the Vietnam War were ongoing, and cultural phenomena like The Beatles were dominating the music scene - highlighting the timeframe of the vehicle.
