Citroen unveiled a DS4 Racing Concept at the 2012 Geneva International Motor Show. The car got some tongues wagging, thanks to its magnificent looks and a very powerful 1.6-litre turbo engine. Now rumours suggest Citroen has decided to add the car to its growing list of Racing-badged road-cars.

DS4 Racing is obviously based on the DS4 normal production car. The difference is that it features a suspension system that’s 35mm lower than standard, and is also 55mm wider at the front and 75mm wider at the rear.

Said 1.6-litre turbo is of course shared with sister brand Peugeot, as well as BMW and MINI. It is at its most potent in this case, pushing out a stunning 191kW. That’s the same as a 2.3-litre turbo Mazda3 MPS and a 3.5-litre V6 Nissan Murano!

Should earlier-mentioned rumours prove true and Citroen indeed produce the DS4 Racing, many a petrol-head will be very happy.
