C3 WRC Concept, The Grand Return Of The Citroën Rally Team

On the occasion of the Paris Motor Show, Citroën reveals the world premiere C3 WRC concept, a sporty and muscular version of New Citroën C3, which will meet the challenge of ensuring the return of the Citroën Racing Team in the FIA World Rally Championship.


Ultra Sporty New Citroën C3

C3 WRC concept retains the roundness, freshness and stylistic elements of New C3: two-level light signiture, two-tone body/roof and accents matching the colours of the roof.

A dark bumper and chrome chevrons stretching to the daytime running LEDs, carbon yellow racing mirror and a 55mm larger chassis than New C3 allows greater aerodynamic freedom and a spoiler for the front bumper is equipped to enhance this... A sporty design and sharpened tone.

Concept Car Built For Competition

C3 WRC is primarily a car tailored for the circuit, with all the attributes of a future champion:

- Enlarging the diameter of the turbo flange to 36mm has led to engine power increasing to around 380bhp.

- More freedom given to aerodynamics with a width range to 1875 mm, a prominent front bumper and a rear bumper with integrated diffuse

- An expanded and declined rear spoiler for an even greater downforce

- Vehicle weight has been reduced by 25kg
