€52,000 RAISED FOR THE CHARITY MÉCENAT CHIRURGIE CARDIAQUE ENFANTS DU MONDE
A total €52,000 was raised yesterday for the charity Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque Enfant du Monde following the auction by Maison Artcurial of the DS 3 and DS 3 CABRIO INES DE LA FRESSANGE PARIS CONCEPT. These two unique concepts, created jointly by the DS brand styling team and Ines de la Fressange Paris, have found new owners.The action of the buyers will enable children suffering from heart defects in disadvantaged countries to receive treatment in France. The DS brand wishes them all a safe journey!
The DS 3 and DS 3 CABRIO CONCEPT created jointly by the DS brand styling team and Ines de la Fressange Paris were presented to the public for the first time a few weeks ago, primarily at the Paris Motor Show.
Following this event, the DS brand considered it natural to donate these cars to Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque Enfant du Monde, a charity of which Inès de la Fressange is patron. Founded in 1996, the association enables children suffering from heart defects to be operated in France when they cannot be treated in their home countries owing to a lack of financial and technical resources.
The auction yesterday by Maison Artcurial of the DS 3 and DS 3 CABRIO INES DE LA FRESSANGE PARIS CONCEPT, two unique models, raised €52,000, a sum that will make it possible to treat 4 children (allow €12,000 on average for the treatment of one child).
The DS brand is delighted to be able to contribute to this initiative!

In contrast, the DS 3 Cabrio is adorned in glossy Perla Nera Black, showcasing a mat Infinite Blue roof with an Infinite Blue soft top. Both versions are fitted with 17’’Aphrodite diamond-cut wheels that add a dynamic touch to the styling.
Designed to showcase DS 3 New Light Signature, both versions feature exclusive “Ines Red” door mirror housings. The DS 3 gains a range of personalisation features including an “Aéropostale” adhesive signature in red, white and blue, across the back of the vehicle, an enamel-effect emblem with the words “Ines de la Fressange Paris” on the central pillar, as well as wheel hubs and DS logo surround in Ines Red. The use of the three colours, red, white and blue clearly express the Parisian roots of both brands and their ties with French elegance and luxury

The emphasis is on personalisation and customisation. The seats are upholstered in Granite Blue grained leather with white topstitching. A leather of exceptional quality that is also found on the headrests, with the same Aéropostale signature as on the bodywork.
