Citroën calls this a concept, but it's more of a show car in the grand tradition, showcasing what its competition department can do with a DS3 Cabrio when its collective imagination is allowed free rein.
The stunning DS3 Cabrio Racing concept will premiere at this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, ahead of a more formal debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
Citroën's involvement in the World Rally Championship was a key reference for this one-off, a combination of elements from the DS3 Racing hatchback and the new Cabrio ragtop.
The Cabrio weighs only 25kg more than the hatchback and, with a 150kW, 1.6-litre THP DS3 Racing engine, special 'works' running gear and brakes, this is no static display unit.
