New Concept Car: Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing
This model is being called a 'concept' at this stage, but it seems highly likely that is will evolve into a production car. It uses the same 202bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine as the three-door hatch and weighs just 25kgs more thanks to its fabric roof.
That means Citroen are promising an identical 0-62mph time of 6.5 seconds and a 143mph top speed. The concept was developed in conjunction with the Citroen Racing WRC team which means it should handle just as well as the hatch, with high-performance brakes and tweaked running gear, and there are plenty of visual changes to help it stand out.
Finished in Moondark matte grey paint with contrasting red brake calipers, wheel hubs and badges, the DS3 Cabrio Racing sits on 19-inch gloss black alloy wheels and there are black chrome highlights on the handles, boot trim and door mirror caps. The striking 'DS' pattern logo is printed onto the black fabric roof and there are more upgrades inside too.
