The Citroen Squalo – Italian Style


You’ll see plenty of flash cars around Rimini, and Emilia-Romagna in general – with an obvious marked preference for Italian made models. There’s a special place in everybody’s heart, though, for the Citroen DS – known in Italy as the ‘Squalo’ or Shark. Hard to imagine the Italians getting excited about a french car? Not to worry – the DS was designed for Citroen by Italian industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni!
