Citroen DS3 is a great car, but it needed some upgrades, which can be found in the new sportier version - DS3 Racing.

It uses the same engine 1.6-litre THP, but pumped to a 207PS and 275Nm of torque. The results are achieved thanks to a modified powertrain, optimized turbo unit and a remaped ECU. The engineers at Citroen Racing have also equipped the new athlete with a tail pipe and a muffler.

The interior features carbon fiber trim - dashboard, centre console, steering wheel, armrests and door side mouldings. The orange presents in the cabin with the glossy strip of the dash, gear stick and gear stick surround finished in the same bright tone.

However, DS3 Racing has widened track, lowered ride height and larger brakes.

The suspension features stiffer suspension springs, adapted front and rear shock absorbers, 30mm wider front and rear tracks and 15mm lowering.

The front wheels get 4-piston racing callipers and special disc-brakes – with drilled discs at the rear.

The car stands on huge 18" wheels finished in orange, of course.
