The French car maker Citroen has unveiled the first official sketches with the racing car that will compete in the World Touring Car Championship. Dubbed C-Elysee WTCC, the car will be driven by the nine-time World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb. 

"Choosing C-Elysee as the basis for our WTCC car reflects very clearly our determination to use racing as an active means of supporting our commercial development. With rounds in Latin America, Morocco, China and Russia, the WTCC race calendar is genuinely global, and it will be a real advantage to run a C-Elysee, a key driver of our growth, in front of large crowds of enthusiastic motorsport fans", said Citroen CEO Frederic Banzet.

The new Citroen C-Elysee WTCC comes with a 1.6 liter turbocharged direct injection unit that can deliver 380 HP at 6.000 rpm and 400 Nm at 4.500 rpm. On the outside we see a special aerodynamic kit and big 18 inch wheels. According to Citroen officials the racing model has already entered the testing phase.
