The 1.6-liter turbo engine, developed by Citroën Racing, provides up to 256hp, to give it a healthy 160hp per liter. This represents a new high for a Citroën series production car, if this version were to reach showroom floors.

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte.
