Citroen’s limited run DS3 Racing, an offspring of Citroen’s racing Division that’s in charge of producing the brand’s WRC rally cars, will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in a week’s time but Citroen has decided to try to create more buzz for the car by releasing a video clip of the car.

Looking a lot like one of those Hot Wheels toy cars, the DS3 is about as limited as limited can get with only 1,000 units being produced by Citroen. The car comes with a modified version of the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that produces an output of around 200 hp. Incidentally, the engine is co-developed by BMW-PSA Citroen Puegeot where it is also found under the hood of the MINI Cooper JCW.

Check out the video to see Citroen Racing’s new pride and joy before it breaks cover in Geneva next week.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I wouldn’t exactly call the Veyron a French make, most of it’s important parts are made in Germany as well as the original development was led by VW.

Sweet video. It shows stable car in high speed. I do hope that I can see it with other cars of other makes in a circuit or a drag lap though. It will definitely be something to look forward to specially in the world of rally racing.
