Hammond's icons: Citroen DS
Richard dons his beret, munches some garlic and practises his Gallic shrug... the Citroen DS has arrived

I should imagine that it could very quickly become very, very expensive if you were to run one every day. Everything on it is complicated and unique to the car. There was a convertible model, the Décapotable, which is now fantastically valuable, but a late saloon like this one could be found for under £20k. But beyond the worry of running such a complicated, old car, and beyond the expenses, my main concern would be the pressure of always having to think of something philosophical, passionate or brainy enough to say while riding in it. It would make every journey a mind-expanding experience.
