Flaminio Bertoni (Varese, 10th January 1903 – Antony, 7th February 1964) was an Italian designer and sculptor. It is universally considered as one of the greatest car designers of all time.
He was commissioned to design the future Citroën Traction Avant and, for the first time in the history of cars, he designed it in three dimensions, performing the maquette of the car in scale, thanks to his sculptor skills. Since then he signed the most important Citroën cars until 1964, including the 2CV and the DS.
Robert Opron (Amiens, 22nd February 1932) is a French automotive designer, known for his long and successful collaboration with Citroën.
In 1962, he moved on to Citroën, where he refined his talent for drawing before the eyes of an illustrious figure such as Flaminio Bertoni, known for having designed the beautiful lines of the Citroën DS. Here, Opron treasured the importance of the concept of aerodynamics, also thanks to the success of the DS and the fact that it was possible to create a car with a futuristic look that was decidedly over the top, but also knew how to delight. According to Opron, the most effective way to have an aerodynamic nose, able not to give problems related to drag, was to incorporate the headlights in the design of the front panel.
