Citroen announced they will offer an RHD version of their ultra-hot DS3 Racing in the British market, but in a limited run of 200 units. This car celebrates Citroen Racing’s huge success in WRC over the years and therefore is specially equipped. It comes with a 207hp and  275Nm of torque turbocharged 1.6 liter THP engine and has a starting price of £23,100 MRRP OTR.

The car which also comes with sport chassis, suspension and brakes is 15mm lower than the standard models and features a special body kit as well, including carbon fibre components such as the rear diffuser, front bumper, side rubbing strips and wheel arch extensions.  The interior has received the same special treatment and the extensive use of carbon fibre continues on the centre console, steering wheel and door inserts.

DS3 Racing comes in two distinctive colour schemes, one with an Obsidian Black (pearlescent) body and a Sport Orange roof the other features a Polar White body with a Carbon Grey roof.
