The car will be a special front wheel drive turbocharges version. Of this very popular French car. This Citroën DS3 has been prepared by Citroen. Having to be used by all the participants. So who want to compete in this class of rally racing.

The Citroën DS3 will only be able to use Michelin tyres. But they are amongst the best tyres in the world anyhow. The new cars will benefit from having special springs and shock absorbers with modernised Brembo brakes fitted.

This new car will also be fitted with super lightweight alloy wheels. Including, 18 inch tyres and will have a 20 mm wider track for better stability and cornering. The engine will also be improved by the addition of a larger turbocharger to improve the engines combustion.

The Citroen DS3 R will be available to the public and is expected to be on sale at around the £23 to £24,000 mark.

Just as a footnote I was interested to see that Vauxhall have brought out the “Adam”, with colour mixes and matches very similar to the Citroën DS3 ?
