Built as a successor to the Citroën Xsara WRC, the Citroën C4 WRC was revealed on 2006 Paris Motor Show as Citroën's machine for the 2007 World Rally Championship season. Based on the Citroën C4 Sport Concept, the construction of the C4 WRC was carried out by Citroen Sport's engineers at Versailles Satory. Although most of the styling on the concept were retained, however it had undergone necessary modifications to meet the satisfaction of international regulations and performance requirements. The glass roof from the C4 Concept were replaced as it is banned from rally racing, and its bodywork was tested in a wind tunnel on a 1/4 scale model before being made into a full size version for cost efficiency. Like the Xsara WRC, it features a 2-litre turbocharged engine mated to a cross-mounted 6-speed gearbox. At 4.20 m, the C4 WRC is longer than the Xsara and, in line with regulations, therefore has a larger width of 1,800 mm, compared with 1,700 mm for the Xsara.
Since its debut, the C4 WRC is proven to be one of the most successful rally car to date. Nine-times WRC champion, Sébastien Loeb won four of his driver championships with it from 2007 to 2010. It also won Citroën the manufacturer's title from 2008 to 2010. The C4 achieved a 100% winning record on asphalt, winning all 13 pure tarmac rallies in the WRC from the start of 2007 to the end of 2010.
The C4 was succeeded by the DS3 World Rally Car for 2011.
