WRC (World Rally Championship) champion Sébastien Loeb is saying goodbye to his current car, the Citroën C4 WRC, and making room for his new weapon. The Top Gear car of the year, the Citroën DS3, will be the C4's replacement for the 2011 WRC year. Under the hood is a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder Turbocharged 300 horsepower engine which is connected to an all new 6-speed sequential gearbox along with full-time all-wheel drive. This race car accelerates from 0 to 60 in under 6 seconds and speeds up to 140 MPH. It is also features all of the WRC requirements including rally roll cage, rally wheels and tires, carbon fiber bumper, rally roof scoop, and rally rear wing. This car should be good if it's going to protect Sébastien's championship title.
