Citroën Racing used its experience in their DS3 WRC and DS3 Racing projects, resulting to a limited edition DS3 Cabrio that marries sporting performance, dynamic styling and the pleasure of top-down driving. It is powered by a 207hp four-cylinder 1.6-liter THP engine that provides 30 percent more power and 15 percent more torque than the standard THP 155 unit.
The engine allows the DS3 Cabrio Racing to accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 6.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 145mph. The DS3 Cabrio Racing features a unique look thanks to sports detailing and a dynamic color scheme, with hints of carbon fiber. The car features Moondark Matte Grey body colour, Black fabric roof and 18-inch Brilliant Black ‘Nemesis’ sports alloy wheels. It also carries Brilliant Red DS logo center caps and red painted brake calipers.
Each of its doors also features a Brilliant Red vertical stripe. The color scheme is also implemented inside and is well-complemented by Alcantara-trimmed and embossed Citroën Racing seats that features Brilliant Red stitching and headrest inserts. It Moondark Grey dashboard also features a Brilliant Red vertical stripe. The DS3 Cabrio Racing will don a numbered plaque placed in front of the gear lever, underlining the model’s limited edition status.

It also sports the eMyWay Signature pack that features an RDS stereo radio/MP3 compatible CD player with steering mounted controls and Bluetooth system with USB socket and eight-speaker HiFi system.
