DS is back with another special edition car, this time a “spring/summer collection” addition to the DS 3 supermini range that will go on sale in the UK in May. 

Called the DS 3 Ines de la Fressange, it’ll be limited to 200 examples and features distinctive design tweaks and finishes inside and out, supposedly inspired by the latest fashion trends.

The body is finished in bespoke Ink Blue paint and is matched with a white roof, while the door mirrors and centre caps in the 17-inch alloy wheels are painted a contrasting red. ‘Airmail’ Tricolour stripes loop around the rear window pillars.

In the cabin, the exterior look is complemented by standard blue grained leather upholstery. The same Airmail pattern is found on the headrest covers and floormats, while the dashboard insert is finished in a striking tone of red and accompanied by the ‘Leon’ logo of the Ines de la Fressange Paris House brand.

In terms of tech, this car comes loaded with LED headlights, an infotainment system with built in smartphone Mirror Screen, Apple CarPlay, DAB digital radio and satellite navigation, plus the Convenience Pack, adding automatic lights, windscreen wipers and folding door mirrors.

Prices will start at £20,310 for the car with a PureTech 110 petrol engine and a manual gearbox. An automatic gearbox is an extra £1,500. A manual diesel version will go on sale too – the BlueHDI model costing from £20,890.
