Last week Citroen revealed a cabrio version of the DS3 Racing – innovatively named the Citroen DS3 Cabrio Racing – which was a DS3 Racing with the top chopped off and lots of special design cues.

The Cabrio Racing had its first outing this weekend at Goodwood – and is heading for a more public reveal at Frankfurt in September – even though Citroen are calling the Cabrio Racing a Concept.

But it seems the Cabrio Racing is more than just a concept and is heading for limited production after Citroen confirmed as much to Auto Express over the weekend.

It seems the plan is to produce a limited run – something under 400 cars – and offer much of the ‘concepty’ stuff the concept offers in the production car, like the rough textured matt paint, laser-etched detailing, carmen red highlights and upmarket interior and accessories.

When the Cabrio Racing does hit showrooms – which will probably be in early 2014 – you can expect it to cost around £30k.
