eBay Charity Auction of WRC Xsara Replica

Sat, 11 Dec 2004
A unique Citroën Xsara WRC replica, signed by world rally champion Sébastien Loeb and Citroën Sport team manager Guy Frequelin, is up for grabs in a special 10 day, bids-only sale on The money raised will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

With just 5,500 miles on the clock, this replica car looks like the world rally dominating Xsara WRC, has been modified by Citroën specialist Cituning and has been maintained to an as-new standard by Citroën UK Limited as part of the company’s press fleet.

Based on a 2002 Xsara VTS coupe, the replica’s body kit includes a wide body conversion with rear spoiler, upper tailgate spoiler and headlamp eyebrows. Inside the cabin, the front seats have been replaced with sculpted Evolution Cobra seats, re-trimmed rear seats and door panels plus a carbon-look dash. OMP 4 point harnesses and OMP Rally steering wheel and gear lever complete the rally feel of the car.

The engine too has been customized with a modified cylinder head, fast road cams, ‘Green’ air filter kit and a re-mapped engine management computer, boosting the power to well over the standard 170 BHP. To balance this power the Xsara WRC replica sports ‘WR Pro’ 6 pot brakes with semi-racing pads and 336mm discs.

Lowered suspension sees the flared wheel arches hug the Michelin tyres shod on CITUNING WRC modula alloys finished in white whilst the under body features a sump guard, tank guard and rally mud flaps.

The total value of the conversion from standard car to WRC replica was £8,000 and it even comes with the special number plate X100 WRC.

In addition to signing the bonnet, Loeb and team boss Guy Frequelin have also signed the car’s log book adding further to the value of the car.

Bids for the car can be made at from 11th December for 10 days. Highest bidder gets the car and proceeds from the sale, after costs, will be presented to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
