Citroen has released the first images of the new C3 WRC to be rallied in next year's World Rally Championship.

The French manufacturer returns to the WRC fulltime with the striking new design and is tipped to make an immediate impact.

The C3 WRC concept car will be shown to the public at next month's Paris Motor Show.

Northern Irishman Kris Meeke is already confirmed as one of the team's drivers but Craig Breen and Stephane Lefebvre have been used at certain events this year. Off-contract Hyundai star Thierry Neuville is also rumoured to be in contention for a seat next season.
