Elsewhere, the new DS3 Café Racer features ‘Café Racer’ badging on the bonnet and doors, decorations on the boot and shark fin antenna that mirror the roof decals, exclusive 17-inch black diamond-cut Bellone alloy wheels with Parthenon Cream centers, and a chrome license plate embellisher. The door handles and side mirror casings have a glossy black look, and the car also features tinted rear windows.

Inside, it gets Trinitario Brown Nappa leather seats, perforated leather steering wheel, aluminum pedals and footrest and several other special features.

The equipment list includes xenon headlights, reversing camera, 7-inch touchscreen display, sat-nav, smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, and the DS Connect Box with emergency and assistance systems.

    This car is nice looking, but it’s in desperate need of a refresh. That interior is so dated it hurts.

  • CarCzarDesigner

    The decal graphics on this remind me of labeling found on a bag of rolled oats.

  • That’s a random limited edition model, and for a cafe racer tribute, lacking the pace for it.

  • CADOX

    They could’ve at least made sure the central armrest’s colour matches the seats. PSA is so cheap.

  • I’m sorry but how this car has any connection to cafe racers is beyond me. For starters…it’s a car! Then what’s with the bad graphics? and then there’s the fact that it has 2 wheels too many..oh yeah it’s a car not a motorcycle, what was I thinking?!

    No. Just no.
