I like the white one,I don't think I could see myself driving the one with orange wheels.
Would I buy one ? If the price was right yes but when you see how much they ask for the DS3 racing I doubt it . They'll probably price it against some real nice cars .

I'm a tad confused. The first white one is really a sport with dechromed mirrors and grill. I have the xenons and 19" two tone alloys. The big oddity is it appears to be a3 door as does the red one. What is advantage of that, as 4 is meant to look like coupe with hidden rear doors anyway?

I think that all the pictures are 'touched, up. As a Google search on DS4R shows a different picture again, with lower spoilers, a clear twin exhaust, and still 5 door.

Pete you nailed it.Thats the one I saw and to be fair it looks good in the matt look - the other 3 seem to be someboyd's go at photo-shopping, std cars I think.


My worry's are:
1. The DS3 sport is about £23k (some £4k more than top DS3 with trimmings) so what are they going to sell the DS4 for? A current 4 sport with all the trimmings comes in at £26.5k so £30k+ would be a steep price to pay for this compared to a sporty Audi A3 or BMW, and nigh on 50% more than a Ford Focus ST3 with similar looks and performance?
2. My car with 160 diesel chipped to 197 has arguably too much torque etc, even for wide 19" wheels, so having say 260bhp (to compete with similar eg Golf GTI/Ford ST/Astra VXR), would need some very creative suspension - which adds to price.

It comes back to my comment in another thread - will they renew these models? I'm not sure.
