LA DÉESSE (3/2010, EVROPA Magazine)

Roadmovie

Issue

May/June 2010

So here it was, one of those lazy Sundays… when the burden of the week is slowly getting off your tired shoulders… and it leaves you guessing… will you stay in bed and leave your cares behind? …or will you stare at the horizon…and discover something new…

We opt for the horizon… we go for it, just driving… just us and the car of our dream… a 1970 Citroën DS convertible… la DSLA DÉESSE… a very special car – the Goddess.

The Goddess has inspired many an artist… she was cast in many a cult French movie of the 60ies… Louis de Funès, Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve… they enjoyed a cinematic ride in this beautiful car… She’s even told to have saved Charles de Gaulle’s life… the shots of the assassin had blown one of the tires, but the driver still could escape at full speed due to the car’s unique hydropneumatic suspension…

…We have no need to escape… instead, we live our own road movie… and the bottom line is the horizon…
