On video: Citroen DS3 Racing

Nic Cackett

Audi might like to think it's breaking new ground with the Playstation Home showroom, but Citroen's DS3 Racing video is a neat reminder (if one were needed) that new cars look best when on good old-fashioned film.

The 97-second clip also confirms our initial impressions; the DS3 makes for a fine looking hot hatch. There's a hint of Halford's bodykit about the new exterior trim, but the standard car's stocky proportions suit those flared wheels arches down to the ground.

If there was any doubt that Citroen has set the Mini Cooper S firmly in its gun sights with the DS3 Racing they should be dispelled by that ultra-stylised interior and the dramatised switching of genders in the driving seat.
