 The selection of the initial model was driven by, among other things, initially great aerodynamics of C-Elysee model. And to prepare this car for circuit racing designers have decorated it with a powerful body kit and lower suspension. 

Citroen’s arrival into the WTCC was officially announced last month. And today French manufacturers have introduced a vehicle that will be driven by Sebastien Loeb. We’re talking about Citroen C-Elysee WTCC sedan. \"Selecting C-Elysee sedan as a vehicle involved for the circuit racing is dictated by our intention to use the WTCC World Cup as a platform to actively promote this model,” - explained his decision Frederick Banse, the CEO of the company. WTCC geography is extremely extensive. The races take place in in Latin America, Morocco, China and Russia, and all of these places are excellent for demonstrating C-Elysee. More than that, this model is positioned as a key model in developing current strategy. Citroen also states that new C-Elysee model has already sold 30.000 of copies around the world, which is 30% more that was initially planned. 

Xavier Mestelan-Pinon, technical director of Citroen Racing said in his recent interview: “Because it’s our first vehicle designed for circuit racingб we can endlessly wonder rather this choice is obvious to our customers. But this makes the challenge of promoting it more exciting.”

Citroen engineers have placed under its hood a 1.6-liter with direct injection taken from rally DS3 WRC car. At the same time boost pressure was increased making the power increased from 300 to 380 hp and maximum torque – from 350 to 400 N/m. Such engine is paired with a six-speed robotized Sadev gearbox, and has a front drive. In addition, the car also received mechanical differential, 18-inch wheels, adjustable shock absorbers and modified suspension (MacPherson on all wheels), redesigned braking system, roll cage and a number of other specific modifications useful at the ring road. The debut of Citroen C-Elysee will happen in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
