The company offers this first glimpse of the C3 WRC having won everything with his Xsara models, C4 and DS3 WRC. Citroën will return to the World Rally Championship next year with hope of yet another victory.

Citroen stopped participating in the WRC late in the 2012 season, with the 8th and last success of the tandem team of Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena Elena.

Designed by Citroën’s style center, this C3 WRC concept proposes an aggressive variation of the Citroën C3 with an impressive aerodynamics kit whose appearance on the final C3 WRC could be slightly different.  Citroën made it clear that this concept does not correspond exactly to the actual WRC C3 which will be raced, but it is close in its overall look.
