Used as the French Military Attaché's official car in Rome, it is the only known surviving DS Prestige delivered to the French Military, and features details not shared by any other survivor. The original French Military number '???????? 020893' is painted on the underside of the original bonnet, which accompanies the car and is available for separate collection. Elsewhere, Chapron's number '6010' is hand written on the reverse of all the interior panels. After its military service ended, the car returned to Paris and was registered as '722 TF 75' (plates supplied). Subsequently the Prestige was owned by numerous prominent Citroën collectors before being acquired by the current owner, the former proprietor of DS World in London. As a DS aficionado, he respectfully preserved the car's high degree of originality while undertaking a sympathetic light restoration. In 2019 the car was fully re-commissioned and fitted with a fully reconditioned gearbox and clutch (with warranty), the front brake callipers overhauled, and more. Since its purchase many years ago the Prestige has been exhibited at the 2005 DS 50th Anniversary in Paris as well as international Chapron events in 2005 and 2007. Spares accompanying this important Prestige include the aforementioned original bonnet and correct aluminium roof.
