Exciting news – Citroën has unveiled the Citroën DS3 Racing S. Loeb limited edition road car.

For fans of the World Rally Championship, Sébastien Loeb will need no introduction, but if you’ve never felt the pull of the mud-splattered stage, this extraordinary Frenchman has won eight world titles at the wheel of various fire-breathing Citroën, smashing win records and Finnish egos along the way.

So how has Citroën seen fit to honour his achievements? With a car that invokes thoughts of his rally success by offering uprated performance, or which at least draws some styling cues from the quasi DS3 that he competes in?

Erm, no. They fitted an uprated sat-nav system (presumably as a nod to his equally successful but otherwise not namechecked co-driver, Daniel Elena), painted it matt black and put some decals on the car. Oh, and they’ve asked Loeb to personally sign all 200 of them.
