The Citroën DS's suspension may have changed the course of history in 1962, when French President Charles De Gaulle was riding from the Elysee Palace to Orly Airport in his DS. Gunmen opened fire on the car in an assassination attempt, and more than a few of the 140 bullets shattered the car's rear window and deflated all four of its tires. Due to the car's suspension system however, the President's driver was able to accelerate out of a skid and flee to safety.
