Citroën has done a lot with the DS lineup over the past couple of years. From a long-dormant nameplate it has built a range of three models – DS3, DS4 and DS5 – but according to the latest reports, has no plans of slowing down any time soon.

Among the most interesting plans involve the DS3 Racing. The extroverted hot hatch, with its 200-horsepower turbo four and anything-but-subtle color scheme, was initially planned as a limited edition of 1,000 vehicles. Popular demand across Europe saw that increase more than twofold to around 2,400, but sources suggest that with even those almost all sold out, a new version could be in the works.

Demand in China – which is rapidly becoming the largest market for many automakers, Citroën included – for larger vehicles could also see the range expand with a bigger version of the DS5 and maybe even a flagship production version of the Metropolis concept pictured above.

Beyond that, we're told to expect – or at least for our overseas readers to expect – a wide range of new options and special editions in the years to come. Looks like we haven't seen the last of the DS line.

      Fantastic looking machine(the metropolis)! If I were Sarkozi I'd demand to be chauffeured in this thing!

      The one thing I don't understand is with Citroen using not one but two Mitsubishi vehicles in non-US markets, why hasn't Mitsubishi used the DS3 and the current C5 in the US to bolster their lineup. It's not like the company couldnn't use a new Colt and Galant.

          I don't really understand the down votes for Captain Spadaro. Mitsubishi doesn't have one product with buying or that's even somewhat competitive in the NA market.

      I can't understand why the French can't come back. After all, the Italians are coming back-people in America actually want quality European cars-due to the decent sales of the 500 (for such a tiny car) and the surging sales of VW. As someone who has driven several PSA and Renault products in France, I think that the French really put a lot of passion into their cars-theyir cars are actually even more fun to drive and have better handling than Mazdas, and that is no small feat. If they were sold through Mitsubishi dealerships and made at Mitsubishi plants, they could actually be sold in America rather cheaply.

      These new Citroens are hot. Would love a DS3 Racing here in the US. Citroen has found their styling direction!

      I love the Metropolis concept. It's definitely my favorite concept car of the last 5 years.

      And another comment, they really need to sell these cars in the U.S. I'm more in the performance camp for my vehicles, but if this were over here I could see it making the Fiance very happy.
