6 DS limousine – October '29 advertisement

Panhard & Levassor began streamlining its portfolio by abandoning the intermediate models for which the competition is too fierce. The 4 cylinder cars disappear from the catalogues. The new Panhard & Levassor X66 6DS 20CV is probably one of the most beautiful cars made with its elegant lowered line designed by the new designer Louis Bionnier. This is a complete break with the previous productions. Panhard & Levassor is entering an era of modernity. Apart from the engine, derived from very recent six-cylinder Knight-system, everything is new! The chassis has an elaborate construction, forming a very low and rigid structure. The floor has double walls, allowing multiple storage compartments for batteries and tools. "S" stands for “surbaissé” meaning lowered chassis.
