Rumors have been flying around that say Citroen is preparing a competitor for models like the Volkswagen Golf R and the Renaultsport Mégane RS, and here it is. The French company has offered the first official confirmation of the upcoming DS4 Racing Concept. This first concept model will be unveiled next month at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The new DS4 Racing Concept will be finished in a textured-effect matte grey paint combined with a two-tone roof and 19" two-tone wheels with a special DS4 Racing design. The car has been lowered by 35 mm, but offsetting that is a widened track, 55mm at the front and 75mm at the rear. These adjustments make the DS4 look aggressive, as well as more aerodynamic.

The Citroen DS4 Racing Concept is powered by a 1.6-liter turbo petrol engine that delivers a total of 256 HP. It also features a ton of carbon fiber components, including the air diffuser, front splitter, and wheel arch extensions.

Full details on the Citroen DS4 Racing Concept will be unveiled next month during its official debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned!

Why it’s still on a concept? While this stays as a concept, I hope they can focus more on the addition of equipments, enhancing performance and better driving ability.

A concept that has to be well-thought of, it is certainly this one. It still seems incompetent.

This concept needs to be developed further. Like everyone else is saying, its possible competitions might be better.

While this is still a concept, Citroen should think of great ideas to develop this more. Like as Dahlia_Pinto said, Citroen will flop once the better competitions present their own innovations.

Soul_Shinobi, I agree. Although this is good on its own, I am quite not confident that it will be better than other cars.

I doubt that this Citroen can beat Golf and Magane RS. The exterior is dull, and lifeless. Let’s see on the debut if this DS4 is different from the concept or better yet much impressive.

Wow, finally someone is competing against the Golf and Megane RS, but I doubt its capabilities on a high-speed race. We’ll find out at Geneva Motor Show 2012 after unveiling next month if this DS4 has the same fate as Golf and Megane.

The two-tone roof, two-tone wheels design really fits the racing concept. Also the lowering of the car gives more advantage. The carbon fiber components perfectly suit the features.
