Does anyone know what VTR stands for? Is it an acronym like DL (DeLuxe) GT (Grand Tourissmo) or TC (Twin Cam), or is it just a made-up designation ( :clown: ) to differentiate from other meaningless model letters? I can't find anything in any of the literature.

Not that it matters, I'm just curious. :rolleyes:

"Understeer" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"Oversteer" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"Horsepower" is how fast you hit the fence.
"Torque" is how far you take the fence with you.

Doesn't appear to be in this case it refers to the body trim level. the following taken from Citroen France site, seems to be about gloss paint??


'The C3 VTR is the most dynamic C3. The radiator grill, rearview mirror housings, outside door handles and fog lamp embellishers are painted gloss-black, and the tail pipe is chrome.'
