Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing confirmed for production – and it’s OFFICIALMon, 16 Dec 2013
The Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing is officially going in to production
It’s been more than three years since the Citroen DS3 Racing arrived as a performance pocket rocket to sit at the top of the DS3 range, but all we’ve had so far on the obvious next route – the DS3 Cabrio Racing – is a concept at Goodwood this year. We did hear shortly after its appearance at Goodwood that the Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing is going in to production, but now that’s been made official by Peugeot.
In terms of what’s on offer, the Cabrio – apart from the hole in the roof – is going to be exactly what the DS 3 Racing is with a 1.6 litre four-pot Turbo delivering a very healthy 207bhp, enough for a 0-62mph in around 6.5 seconds.
There won’t be a choice of trim levels for the Cabrio Racing – it’s a stand-alone model – and we’re expecting production to be very limited.
It seems unlikely Citroen will build no more than 400 Cabrio Racings – and it could be as lower – with price likely to be pushing on £30,000.
And with a just a few hundred cars being made – with production probably starting in spring 2014 – and just some of those coming to the UK, you’d better start pestering your Citroen dealer if you want to grab one.
