Am I only one, who think that DS420 was just ugly?

Not pretty, but how many limousines are actually elegant? They are all designed to be imposing so have big exaggerated features and lose a sense of scale. Only the Merc 600 has - to me at least - some elegance. DS420 is not the worst of its type, but succeeds in looking British which was one objective.

Well...IMHO,as for Daimlers, Majestic Major and DR450 were pretty nice.

The DS420 was based on the Jaguar Mk.X/420G which itself was very wide and swollen looking. It also follows frontal styling cues from the 1966-68 Jaguar 420/Daimler Sovereign. It is an ungainly limo but probably looks more handsome now because of its retro-ness. Nowadays if you happen to see one on the road over here, it's either going to a funeral (if it's black) or a wedding (if it's white) Usually it's black.

The Austin/Vanden Plas Princess from the 50s and 60s was quite elegant /vehicle_36242-Princess-4-Litre-Limousine-DM4-1960.html

When I got married I wanted a DS420 as it was the latest model available, but they didn't have one anywhere, so I had to accept a Majestic Major. Looking back, I think it was a better choice.
