Citroën Creates an Amazing Scale Rally Scene On Top of a DS3

The French really outdid themselves with a detailed diorama molded on top of a Citroën DS3 hatchback, created to celebrate Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena’s nine FIA World Rally Championship titles.

Revealed at the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) earlier this month and set to remain on show until March 1, the 1:43 scale model displays nine different rally events, one for every championship win, from the Rally Finland to the Acropolis Rally, with each terrain featuring a 1:43 scale model of one of the duo’s championship-winning cars, dating back to 2004 and the Citroën Xsara.

Designed and built by Kieron Barter of Funky Lemon Design, the display model took about two months to complete.

Talking about the model-making process, Barter said: “When I was initially approached by Citroën about this, I was really excited. It’s definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience so I jumped at the chance. The most enjoyable, and perhaps most challenging part was working with a DS3 to get the mould for the car, purely because it’s not something that I’ve done before and it was very important to get the mould right.”

Citroën stated that it plans a dealer tour of the car later in the year and will also show the model at various events throughout the summer.
