The Robot gets faster!

C4 wrcCitroën' are pinning the World Rally Championships on from January 2007 onward

What a sizzler it promises to be with 315bhp from an upgraded XU7JP4 engine. The 2 litre Coupe road going variant currently produces 178bhp!

However the cost of each car is estimated at £500,000+ and each is designed to last just 2 rally's or 700km

Not much of the road going model is actually used as the car is stripped of any unnecessary weight then a roll cage is added to improve stiffness and safety.

High performance suspension is fitted with wider wheel arches and redesigned front and rear spoilers. Plus high tech differentials and gearboxes.

Whilst the maximum speed is going to be around 140mph the car is optimised for cornering ability as overall that's what wins rally's, not straight line speed.

Hopefully one day the technological advances made in the rally cars will find there way to road going production vehicles.
