After about twenty years of existence, the DS was still at the forefront and remained a point of reference. Despite this, Citroen developed a new end-of-career version, which debuted in 1973 as the DS23. The displacement of the last of the DS rose to 2347cc; the car was available in carburettor version (115 horsepower) or injection (130 horsepower). On April 23, 1975, the latest DS came out of the Citroen factory, a "23" injection in Delta blue. Total production of the DS had reached 1,330,755 units.

NOREV

Norev is one of the most famous brands in the automotive industry. Founded by Joseph Véron in Villeurbanne near Lyon in 1946, it began producing car models in 1953. At the beginning the models were made of plastic, in 1:43 and 1:86 scale. From the late 1960s, die-cast models were also made mainly in 1:43. In the 70s and 80s, production continued with ups and downs, also moving to various countries around the world with the same Norev brand but also with other brands. Several Eligor and Vitesse models of that period were based on older Norevs. Norev models were originally quite cheap, but from the 1990s the company began to target the collectors' market with improved re-editions of old models and unreleased subjects. From 2002 onwards, Norev, which moved production to China, also made newsstand models for publishers such as Hachette and Atlas. In 2007–2008 Norev introduced re-issues of the 1950s CIJ and Spot-On models and temporarily tried to revive the Provence Moulage range of 1:43 resin models. Today Norev is more active than ever, with a wide choice of 1:43, 1:18 and smaller scale diecast models, with a very interesting quality-price ratio.
