To mark the opening of the DS World Paris flagship store on November 27 in the French capital, Citroen is unveiling a limited edition model of the DS3. Only 15 units of the Citroen DS3 World Paris will be made, with the first one to be on exclusive display at the new venue in central Paris dedicated to DS models.
Inspired by Art Deco architecture and reflecting French artisanal expertise, the Citroen DS3 World Paris uses exclusive colors and higher-quality materials.
The model features a matte ash grey body paint matched with matching Trinitario brown roof and mirror caps. The 17-inch wheels feature a diamond effect that matches the roof and wing mirrors.
On the inside, the first DS3 World Paris model sports watchstrap style Trinitario brown Nappa leather with beige overstitching. The same leather can be found on the dashboard insert, gear lever handle and central armrest.
Each of the 15 models will be unique, with even the numbered DS World Paris badge being different from one model to another – on the first of 15 models the plaque is made from Burgundy oak. The wood decoration is inlaid in the leather dashboard insert – a similar technique is also used for the door panels.
