Citroen DS3 R Pricing Announced

French manufacturer Citroen announced today European pricing for the racing version of the DS3, a variant that is powered by a 1.6-litre THP 150 engine delivering 200 hp and 275 Nm of torque. Dubbed DS3 R, the car will be priced around EUR28,300 when it will go on sale on September 1.

Entering the market as a 1000-unit limited edition, the DS3 R has a reprogrammed ECU, new turbos and a new exhaust system. The Citroen DS3 R also comes with a stiffer suspension, a 30 mm lowered ride height and upgraded brakes, as well as improved aerodynamics.

The car’s exterior has a carbon fiber aura, present on the lower part of the front bumper, wheel arches and side guards. At the rear, the hot hatch receives a special diffuser accommodating a chromed exhaust tip.

The DS3 R comes in a bespoke livery: its body is dressed in dark gray contrasting with the orange grille contour, wheels, door mirrors and roof. The latter has received special attention as it features a Grey-Orange racing flag theme. The car also wears bespoke decals on the sides and bares a distinct signature logo on the back.

The car treats its passenger with carbon fiber finish for the top of the dashboard, the center console, door armrests and the steering wheel. To create a contrasting image, an orange finish has been used for the dashboard, bottom faceplate of the sifter and also for the latter’s knob.

A special number plate will remind each of the users that they own a limited edition vehicle. The front passengers will be accommodated by new Alcantara-leather sport seats that feature orange stitching.
