October 19, 2023

‘Clous de Paris’ pattern

The DS 3 Esprit de Voyage has a number of distinctive features. Starting with a Pebble Grey interior where the dashboard is finished in Nappa leather, complemented by a special embossing in the shape of a map of Europe. The geometric “Clous de Paris” pattern – a legacy of Paris watchmakers’ iconic “guillochage” relief – symbolizes the place where the Esprit de Voyage was developed: the DS Design Studio Paris.

18-inch Kyoto wheels

The Clous de Paris pattern was developed specifically for the models in this collection and appears in several ways in this DS 3 variant, including on the front door entry strips, the badges on the front doors and also as laser engraving in the exterior mirror caps. The 18-inch Kyoto wheels – now specific to Esprit de Voyage – have an Anthracite Grey diamond finish with a matte coating.
