The death knell has rung for the elder statesman of the Citroen family, with production of its large C6 ending later this month.

Introduced globally in 2005, the big Citroen arrived as a genuine player in the premium market, but more advanced and stylish new rival models have seen C6 sales slow to barely a crawl.

The C6 has already exited the Australian market - in fact, production of right-hand-drive models ended earlier this year, and only three of the $100,000+ Citroens have been sold here in 2012.

The demise of the C6, something of a spiritual successor to the lauded 1955 DS, also means that France no longer produces a large flagship sedan to rival the German giants.

Partner Peugeot has exited the large car market (for now), and Renault has been without a luxury flagship since the end of the slow-selling Vel Satis model in 2009.

Patriotic Frenchmen might soon breathe easy however, with Renault understood to be considering a new range-topper that would share its underpinnings with partner Mercedes-Benz' large E-Class.

Like Citroen's DS range, the new Renault would debut under the new Initiale Paris brand, expected to debut in 2016.

For now, however, well-to-do 'citroyens' will have to look to Germany and England for a new luxury ride.
