Character Patrick Jane from the television show “The Mentalist” drives a Citroen DS from the early 1970s. From 1956 to 1972, this vehicle was sold in the United States after being produced in France from 1955 to 1975.
The first mass-produced vehicle with Paul Magès’ hydropneumatic self-leveling suspension was the Citroen DS. By just pressing a button, the car also allows the driver to elevate or lower the chassis.
In the television series, Simon Baker’s character Patrick Jane works as a consultant for the CBI’s crime-fighting division. He employs his sharp observational and deductive skills, as well as his understanding of social engineering, to help solve crimes.
