Citroen ships first DS3 Racing in the UK

The first of 200 special edition Citroen DS3 Racing models has been delivered in the UK.

Citroen is currently taking orders for the model with a waiting list of around six months.

Bringing racing technologies to the consumer market, the model features bold styling, premium build and a racing-inspired design, on top of its "impeccable sporty pedigree".

DS3 Racing owner John Leslie commented: "I was looking for a car that mixed rally-bred performance and handling with a good helping of style and quality, and the DS3 Racing easily stood out. The added everyday practicality was a real bonus."

According to Citroen, the model is based on the DSport THP 150 model and can reach 62mph in 6.5 seconds, on top of boasting a combined cycle fuel economy of 44.1mpg.

In other news, Citroen will host a press conference tomorrow (March 1st) to launch its appearance at the 81st Geneva Motor Show.ADNFCR-3205-ID-800431214-ADNFCR
