As you know, the new Citroen DS3 will be available in hot hatch variant also. But, at that moment there wasn't any rumors about the brand new variant's name; apparently this super-DS3 model will be called R3. At least this was what the inside sources informed PistonHeads, the exact same source broking the news last week.
The sources state Citroen knows how the new R3 it would look, so now its development has green light, in 2011 it's scheduled for production. All of this, besides its name plate matching it on the hot hatch model.
This mean DS3 will be made beginning from the 1.6l (created with BMW, used on MINI) that makes 150 bhp.
The engine gets tweaked into creation between 170 bhp - 200 bhp. DS3 will have approximately the same numbers as MINI Cooper S, Clio Renaultsport or Seat Ibiza Cupra.
The DS3 R3 unit will have the same price tag range like its competitors, at about 20,000 Euro.
The Citroen DS3 series comes until then, in 3 gasoline and 2 diesel engines. The vehicle features 4 different roof paintings: red, blue, black and white, as well as some optional graphics. The mirrors on the exterior can be painted or chromed with the same body color.
