Citroen has released full details and pricing for the hotly anticipated DS3 Racing.

Developed by Citroen Racing, the DS3 DSport THP 150-derived hot hatch features a specially tuned 1.6-litre THP powertrain that outputs 207bhp and 202 lb-ft of torque. Top speed stands at 146mph while 62mph from standing takes just 6.5 seconds.

Citroen insists that the DS3 doesn’t compromise on comfort or technology, which is evident in the list of standard equipment that includes digital air conditioning, Bluetooth with USB connectivity, eight-speaker hi-fi system, S.ESP (Switchable Electronic Stability Control) and Citroen eTouch Assistance System.

Customers have the choice of two colour schemes – Polar White with a carbon fibre roof or Obsidian Black with an orange roof. Roof colour is matched on the alloy wheels, door mirrors, grille surround, chevrons, tailgate spoiler and dashboard fascia.

Whilst staying true to the original DS3, the Racing is fitted with more motorsport features such as a carbon fibre rear diffuser, front bumper, side rubbing strips and wheel arch extensions.

The Citroen DS3 Racing is priced at £23,100 on the road and order books open on Wednesday 1 September. Just 200 units are destined for UK shores.
