Citroen has released a new video of Sébastien Loeb testing the new C-Elysée WTCC at the Paul Ricard Circuit in France.

Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the C-Elysée WTCC will compete in the World Touring Car Championship in 2014. Given its racing ambitions, the car has been equipped with an aggressive body kit that includes a new front fascia and a ventilated hood. The model also has revised side skirts, extended wheel arches, a prominent rear diffuser and a massive rear wing.

Power will be provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 380 bhp (283 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It will be connected to a six-speed sequential transmission which sends power to the front wheels via a mechanical self-locking differential.

The car will be driven by Loeb and Yvan Muller who remarked it's "lighter, more powerful and more efficient" than anything he has driven in recent seasons.
