The new livery sees a white, black and grey combination with 'touches of florescent green' just below the headlamps, bumper air outlets and rear spoiler. Each WRC machine will have a unique appearance with different coloured roofs has selected Meeke's white, Ostberg's grey and Al-Qassimi's red.

The Citroen squad will also deploy aerodynamic improvements in Portugal with a new front bumper and wings which aim to lower drag and increase downforce.

"Citro?n Racing hasn't stopped working on the development of DS 3 WRC since the current regulations were introduced in 2011," Yves Matton, Citro?n Racing Team Principal, said. "We've already seen that the work of the teams is bearing fruits. So to that extent, the recent one-two at Rally Argentina has just made everyone even more motivated."

"The aerodynamic upgrades introduced here should help us to keep improving," he continued. "Confirmed during wind tunnel and pre-event testing, the gains achieved in terms of drag coefficient and downforce are significant.

"For the 60th anniversary of the Brand, we also felt it was important to share the values of DS through a new graphic identity."
