Citroën GS - Revolutionary ideas from the middle class

Citroën presents the GS to the public in 1970. With the new model designed by Robert Opron, the brand wants to close the gap that has existed in the model range for a long time. DS and ID float at the top, AMI and 2 CV at the bottom. In the middle? There is nothing. The GS will change that.

It will do that well and convincingly, and by the end of the story 1.896.742 examples will have left the factory. It's the recipe that makes the GS so interesting. Boxer engine, a streamlined, almost avant-garde body that continues the lines of the DS and ID.

In addition, the gourmet chefs from the Quai de Javel give the best they have. The hydropneumatics. In a depleted form to keep the distance to the big and expensive DS, but still unique in the middle class. The recipe is exciting and is popular throughout Europe. From Spain to Scandinavia, customers love the GS, which has been voted European Car of the Year twice (1970 and 1971).
