2010 Citroen DS3 Racing Special: You Can’t Touch This

Posted in Citroen, Geneva Motor Show by Kurt Ernst | February 20th, 2010 | 1 Response |

If you live in America, that is. Dammit, why do the Euros get all the good toys? First the Ford Focus RS and now this?

If you’re on the fence about moving across the pond, here’s what you need to know. The Citroen DS3 Racing Special will be available in the second half of the year, it makes 200 horsepower from a 1.6 liter turbocharged four and they’re only making 1,000 of them. The suspension has beem widened by 30mm and lowered by 15mm, and stiffer springs have been added. Traction control can be disabled for track day hoonage, and four piton brakes make sure you can reign it in quickly.

The graphics package is a little much and I could do without all the fake carbon fiber, but I’d still love to flog the crap out of one.

  1. Honestly, a John Cooper Works Mini is probably a better car. But this is FRENCH, damn it! Want.

    I had an opportunity to rent a late-model Citro├źn C3 when I was in Greece. It was a great little car. Peppy with a 5-speed. Door lock button in the center of the dash. Power windows up front, but not in back. I dug it.
