Four days after the French carmaker celebrated the 300,000th DS3 produced at Citroen's plant in Poissy, the manufacturer's U.K. branch revealed a girls only edition of the cheeky supermini. Baptized DS3 DSign Noire by Benefit, this special edition model was designed in partnership with Benefit Cosmetics U.K.

Launched in conjunction with Benefit's all-new Real! gel liner in a pen, the Citroen DS3 DSign Noire has been kitted out with equipment designed to make life behind the wheel easier for girls that do most of their driving in the city. Above all else, this car was specially designed to stand out from all the other hatchbacks on the street.

The Citroen DS3 DSign Noire by Benefit is beautified by elegant 17-inch Bellone alloy wheels and Perla Nera Black metallic bodywork. The outer aesthetics of this special edition DS3 are further enhanced by contrasting Benefit Orange side mirror caps and wheel centre caps.

Other unique features include grey "Gabbi's head" Benefit logos on the B-pillars and a Benefit badge adorning the rear hatch. Inside there's Mistral Akinen Alcantara and Mistral Cloth sports seats, velour floor mats, lots of badging and Benefit Orange detailing here and there. Under the hood, ladies can find a frugal 1.2-liter VTi petrol engine that sends 82 horsepower to the front wheels via a five-speed manual.

Even though this car is mostly a fashion statement of wheels, Citroen U.K. hasn't forgot to generously equip the DS3 DSign Noire with a handy amount of comfort features. LED Signature 3D tail lamps and LED daytime running lights are offered as standard, along with chrome front lights and grille, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity for your smartphone, an USB slot and a Hi-Fi audio system that includes a boot mounted subwoofer.
