Video: Sebastien Loeb tests C-Elysee WTCC car

Arriving back from his record-breaking attack on the formidable Pikes Peak hill-climb course in the highly specialized Peugeot 208 T16, Sebastien Loeb is back with Citroen, at the wheel of its 2014 WTCC contender.

This brief video shows the most successful rally driver of all time putting the Citroen C-Elysee through its paces at the Paul Ricard circuit in France – provided you can stomach the preceding minute or so of god-awful acting and lingering driving shots of a DS3 cabriolet. Not cool, Seb, not cool.

Powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine, the C-Elysee WTCC develops 380bhp and a muscular 400NM of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox a mechanical locking differential.

It will make its official debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September. In the mean time click play and watch the car in the hands of the master.
