France has become the epicenter of the World Rally and not only by the dispute of the Tour de Corse. On the occasion of the Paris motor show, several have been the manufacturers that have wanted to display their new World Rally Cars. The next generation of vehicles will enter the competition in 2017 and therefore, Citroën Racing and Hyundai Motorsport have wanted to show to the visitors of the event to its new machines of competition. Yes, both the Citroen C3 WRC as the Hyundai i20 WRC exposed in Paris have little to do with the final versions that will be homologated next month.
C3 WRC Concept I talked about a few days. The World Rally Car Group PSA will serve to Citroën Racing will return as official team in the WRC after a year ‘sabbatical’ in 2016.

his Hyundai i20 WRC 2017. Although in this case the design is more close
the model of competition and even maintains a certain air of ‘racing’
wear with a livery of camouflage based on the ‘N’ of the division
sports of the brand, what is certain is that the aero kit is
rather away from the radical and aggressive forms which presents the World
Rally Car Korean and he was able to see during the different test that
the team has done in the last few months.
The new Hyundai i20
WRC 2017 is based on the i20 WRC of three doors production and
it has an engine 1.6 Turbo which offers a power above the
380 horses, the result of the use of a flange of admission largest (36 mm).
At the mechanistic level changes with change sequentially activated by cams and
center differential, Electronic Active, while its silhouette has been
widened with respect to the base model. The i20 WRC with their
specifications and design defitivos will be announced at
December, rushing and deadlines for your approval before the
