Citroen C-Elysee WTCC going to Frankfurt image

The French based automaker Citroen has recently announced its plans to introduce the C-Elysee WTCC in a couple of months, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Citroen’s latest creation is named the 2014 C-Elysee WTCC and, as you probably already figured it out, it’s based on the regular C-Elysee model and it will compete in the World Touring Car Championship. The model in question is getting an aggressive front fascia, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a ventilated hood, new side skirts, extended side arches, a rear wing, prominent rear diffuser and a fresh set of 18-inch wheels wrapped in Yokohama tires.

Even though images with the interior of the Citroen C-Elysee WTCC haven’t been released yet, we’re almost sure that the model will receive a roll cage, a bucket seat with six-point harness, a racing steering wheel, a stripped out cabin and much more. As for the engine used, this will be the 1.6 liter four-cylinder unit, which is producing a total output of 380 HP (283 kW) and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb-ft), mated to a six-speed sequential transmission. Power is being sent to the front-wheel drive through a mechanical self-locking differential. No performance details have been released yet.
