Today I went to see ‘DS World’ in Shanghai, where I met the Citroen DS Wild Rubis concept car. DS World is a very hip kinda dealer, selling only the DS-range in a cool building with cool furniture with a cool floor and many other cool things. An interesting car-shopping concept and a first in China. The Citroen DS Wild Rubis had its worldwide debut on last month’s Shanghai Auto Show, where it was almost invisible thanks to an idiotic light ornament. It was much better visible now…

See that X%&* purple-light ornament reflecting in the window? Bad memories! With that thing hanging right above the vehicle it is just impossible to get one shot right.
