Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing Concept
Citroen will unveil an all-new DS3 Cabrio Racing Concept at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
With custom-built excellence, radical choices and refinement in every detail, DS3 Cabrio Racing delivers the performance and sporting looks of a car tuned by the multi-WRC title winning team, Citroen Racing.
Extensively customised with dynamic styling, DS3 Cabrio Racing features a bespoke Moondark matt textured grey paintwork with special gloss black 19" alloy wheels and Black Chrome inserts on the handles, boot trim and door mirrors.
The concept is DS through and through, with bold identity statements. The distinctive DS pattern appears both on the black canvas roof, in gloss weave with a high-tech carbon-fibre look, and is also engraved on the door mirror housings. Meanwhile the brake callipers, wheel hubs, doors with wide side strips and parts of the lettering and badge are coloured in dynamic Carmin red.
The interior boasts bucket seats with a DS watchstrap design in three types of fabric – Napa full-grain leather, DS-embossed leather and Alcantara – and special DS pearl top-stitching, featured in the Carmin shade for the first time, on the seats, dashboard and gearshift. The Carmin colour continues on the seat housings and dashboard, echoing the door side strips.
The engine is the same as in DS3 Racing - 1.6-litre THP – 207HP (153 kW) and 275Nm (204 lb-ft) of torque.
