C4 to replace all-conquering Xsara

How do you replace a car that holds the record for the most consecutive World Rally Championship wins - not to mention three manufacturers' and two drivers' titles?

citroe c4 wrccitroen c4 wrc 2 That's the problem facing Citroen Sport as its world-beating Xsara WRC reaches the end of its lifespan.

And the solution it has come up with is this, the C4 WRC.

The rally-tuned version of Citroen's family hatch will be unveiled at this week's Paris motor show.

Citroen Sport has ditched the funky glass roof for obvious reasons, but apart from that it looks a pretty close relation of its road-legal cousin.

All of which raises hopes of a hotter version of the C4 hitting British roads one day. We certainly wouldn't say no to the WRC's two-litre turbocharged flat-four, which produces 315bhp at 5,500rpm.

But until we can get our hands on one, we'll have to make do with watching the all-conquering Sébastien Loeb driving the WRC in next year's championship. Would you put money on him losing? You would? Fool.
