The much-anticipated Citroën DS3 Cabrio Racing is now ‘on sale’ in the UK. Prospective buyers will need to move fast though, as the ultra-limited production run of just 100 examples worldwide means that just 10 right hand drive models will come to the UK priced at £29,305.

Building on their acclaimed work with DS3 WRC and DS3 Racing, Citroën Racing has developed the refined DS3 Cabrio to create a limited edition that combines sporting performance, dynamic styling and the pleasure of top-down driving.

Under the bonnet, DS3 Cabrio Racing’s 207hp four-cylinder 1.6-litre THP engine – the same as in DS3 Racing – delivers 30% more power and 15% more torque than the standard THP 155 unit on which it is based. 0-62mph is achieved in just 6.5 seconds and, where it is safe and legal, the model has a top speed of 145mph.

Striking to look at, DS3 Cabrio Racing sets itself apart with sports detailing and a dynamic colour scheme, offset by hints of carbon fibre – synonymous with motor racing and performance. The Moondark Matte Grey body colour, Black fabric roof and 18-inch Brilliant Black ‘Nemesis’ sports alloy wheels – complemented by Brilliant Red DS logo centre caps and red painted brake callipers – underline the performance styling. There is even a Brilliant Red vertical stripe down each of the doors.

The colour scheme continues inside the cabin with Alcantara trimmed and embossed Citroën Racing seats with Brilliant Red stitching and headrest inserts. The Moondark Grey dashboard also features a Brilliant Red vertical stripe. A numbered plaque, positioned in front of the gear lever, highlight’s the model’s limited edition status.

DS3 Cabrio Racing is based on the top level specification DSport trim, which includes LED daytime running lights, automatic digital air conditioning and rear parking sensors. The model also features the eMyWay Signature pack, which includes an RDS stereo radio/MP3 compatible CD player with steering mounted controls as well as a Bluetooth system with USB socket and eight speaker HiFi system.
