Citroen DS3 Racing Cabrio could enter production

Citroen is an automobile manufacturer famous in the world because of it is dynamic and continuously improving brand. For them, like for many other brands, the client is the center of the universe. The Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing Concept has just been introduced at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. This concept is submitted to the analysis of Citroen expert who have to decide whether or not the concept will enter small production series.

The Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing will have the same features as the concept car, meaning some bucket seats wrapped in Nappa, leather and Alcantara, as well as the DS styled child’s seat. The car will be powered by the same turbocharged 1.6-liter THP engine that generates 202 bhp (150 kW) and which can be found on the concept, too. The design perfectly reflects the one of a coupe in the true sense of the word.

The officials at Citroen are debating the number of Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing vehicles. If it will enter production, the model will be represented by approximately 200 units. This is a lower number comparing to the coupe version of the same DS3 model. 1, 000 units of the coupe were built and then the number doubled thanks to the great demand. It remains to be seen if the cabrio will confirm expectations.
