Design proposals for new rear for the DS

In 1967, Robert Opron oversaw a number of studies to redesign the tail of the DS. Each model here represents two alternative designs. The picture at top left shows a study which anticipated the design of the CX. The essential correctness of Flaminio Bertoni's original design is self evident when looking at these proposals, none of which came close to the purity of the original. These models are equipped with the redesigned front which was first mooted in 1964 although not fitted to production cars until the 1968 model year.
