DS3 CABRIO RACING: the chic ultra sport





At the first glance, the CITROËN DS3 Cabrio Racing takes us into a world of ultra customisation and sportiness. It combines the strong points of the DS3 Racing with the pleasure of driving with the top down in a DS3 Cabrio.

Taking the styling cues of the CITROËN DS3 Cabrio, it is also given 100 % of the attributes of the Racing, like its strong and classy temperament: an air diffuser, dual chrome exhaust tailpipes as well as real carbon fibre finishers on many parts of the bodywork (air diffuser, lower body finishers, wheel arch extensions…).

The CITROËN DS3 Cabrio Racing is offered in a new Moondark matt grey body colour, associated with a black roof and 18’’ Nemesis gloss black wheels. The Carmin Red colour, specific to the DS line, is used for the centre wheel caps, carrying the DS logo, as well as for a wide band on the doors for further confirmation of its sporting character.

The cabin also benefits from special handling. So the Moondark matt grey body colour is found on the dashboard moulding and trimming parts such as the central panel on the dashboard. The steering wheel finisher and the supports for the instrument panel cowls are made of carbon fibre. Finally, the dashboard repeats the Carmin Red colour in a vertical band on the doors.

The exclusive nature of the CITROËN DS3 Cabrio Racing, limited to 100 examples, is made quite clear by the CITROËN Racing signature on the backrests of the front seats, and a numbered identification plate on the gear lever surround.

Performance is at the heart of the CITROËN DS3 Cabrio Racing. Its 1.6 litre engine developed by CITROËN Racing and producing 207 hp, benefits from all of the brand’s expertise, eight times WRC manufacturers’ world champion.
