Overview of the FIA WTCC
The WTCC is the third world motorsport championship created by the International Automobile Federation, FIA, following the Formula 1 and WRC.
The competition is reserved for five-door production cars with two-wheel drive modified for competition and powered by a 1.6-litre turbo and a sequential 6-speed gearbox.
Citroën C-Elysée WTCC
Hugging the track on 18-inch wheels, the C-Elysée WTCC is an impressive sight. Fitted with a drag-reducing blade, the bumper underlines the grille with its emphatic chevrons. The wings have been extended front and rear to further underscore the car’s athletic temperament. An oversized spoiler at the back keeps the car glued to the track.
The Citroën C-Elysée WTCC is fitted with the same direct-injection 1.6 l turbo powering the DS3 WRC. Through a wider boost flange, power has been upped to 380 bhp, transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed sequential gearbox.
