Retromobile 2020, DS Automobiles celebrates the SM jubilee.
From Wednesday 5 February to Sunday 9 February
At the 2020 Retromobile Show, DS Automobiles and DS Heritage are celebrating this unique achievement, a symbol of combining refinement and technology, with three SMs standing alongside the DS X E-TENSE, heir to this daring adventure. In automotive circles, the epitome of majestic grand touring cars is the SM, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in 2020. Attractive and magnificent, the SM was a major example of collaboration between iconic French and Italian manufacturers. In 1970, it took the avant-garde to its peak and carved out a place for itself in the history of the industry and in the hearts of car lovers.
Introduced at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, the SM emerged as the worthy heir to the DS. The Grand Tourisme had many strengths: a line that was as fluid as it was aggressive, a chassis based on the famous hydraulic suspension, a futuristic interior with egg-shaped dials and a Maserati V6 engine. The DS's DNA was amplified.
An annual meet-up for car enthusiasts, Rétromobile, will once again this year spread over 72,000 m² at Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles. The Show will be open to the public from Wednesday 5 February to Sunday 9 February from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Wednesday and Friday evenings until 10 p.m.).
