Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Citroen C-Elysee WTCC image

The French based automaker Citroen has recently unveiled the new C-Elysee WTCC, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The first images with the Citroen C-Elysee have hit the web a couple of months ago and we have also seen Sebastien Loeb drive the race car at the Paul Ricard track too, but now the model is being placed into the spotlights once again, with the company bringing it to the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, where it made its public debut. The Citroen C-Elysee has an aggressive exterior design, with extended side arches, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a rear wing, rear diffuser and 18-inch alloy wheel wrapped in Yokohama tires.

The cabin of the Citroen C-Elysee has received a bucket seat with a six-point harness, a racing steering wheel and a roll cage, as everything else has been stripped out. Power to the race car is being provided by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine, which is producing a total output of 380 HP (283 kW) and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission which is sending power to the front-wheel drive. Additional details on the Citroen C-Elysee are limited for the moment.
