Citroen DS3 Specials: What the ****?
Has Citroën gone nuts? They make a great car, which everyone loves and it wins awards... the DS3, then they call in a 'designer,' and look! If you dare! The French manufacturer has taken over 100,000 orders for its multi-award winning DS3 – and must have decided to try and slow this progress down, with "a bold new range of colour schemes and roof designs." They say: "A vibrant Fuchsia Pink roof colour is at the heart of the new DS3 options list – available with matching pink door mirrors, wheel centre caps, dashboard fascia and gearlever knob. This new Fuchsia Pink ‘Touch’ is just one of a number of new personalisation options available on DS3 from July 2011. Customers can also choose a striking new Hickory Brown pearlescent body colour and two additional ‘Spirit’ roof designs – ‘Flower’ and ‘Flavio’ – to ensure they stand out from the crowd." They certainly do that all right! Hickory Brown? Fuchsia Pink? Sacre bleu! Mon dieu! Sack the stylist!
