TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Citroen reveals Sebastien Loeb's 2014 WTCC car

Citroen has officially unveiled the C-Elysee World Touring Car Championship vehicle that Sebastien Loeb will drive next year.

According to the French carmaker, the C-Elysee WTCC is the very first vehicle "to be designed in accordance with the new regulations, currently being prepared by the FIA for the category next year."

As we previously reported, the C-Elysee WTCC is powered by a 1.6-liter, 380hp direct-injection turbocharged engine--the same engine that propels the DS3 WRC rally car. The car is also equipped with a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Citroen claims that the C-Elysee was designed for "high-growth, international markets" like Latin America, the Mediterranean region, China and Russia. Widely acclaimed by customers, the C-Elysee is reportedly already 30% ahead of its initial sales target, with approximately 30,000 orders placed for it.

Does this mean the Philippines is not considered a "high-growth, international market"?
