One of the most eye-catching models displayed on the DS stand at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was a shimmering vinyl-wrapped black DS 3. Following high levels of public interest and positive feedback, the model has now been released as a new limited edition named DS 3 Dark Light, with just 300 examples available in the UK.
Featuring Perla Nera Black metallic bodywork, DS 3 Dark Light is specified with a unique clear-backed metallic vinyl wrap along each side of the car. The vinyl wrap is applied with a seamless finish and the clear backing allows the Perla Nera Black bodycolour to blend perfectly with the metallic DS monogramme design. The striking combination results in a premium and stylish new look for DS 3. The highly durable vinyl material is scratch resistant and can with stand mechanical car washes, pressure washers and fuel spills.
Based on the well specified DStyle Nav trim level with eMyWay satellite navigation as standard, the new limited edition DS 3 Dark Light adds the following exterior touches;
- Perla Nera Black metallic paint
- ‘Dark Light’ exterior vinyl wrap graphics
- Signature DS LED Vision headlights
- 17-inch black diamond-cut Bellone alloy wheels
- Chrome door mirrors
- ‘Dark Light’ badging on the front wings & tailgate
The generous specification continues with the interior, adding;
- Sports seats & front arm rest
- Black leather pack
- Convenience pack (auto lights & wipers, electrically-folding door mirrors, auto-dimming rear view mirror)
- Aluminium sports pedals
- Premium carpet mats
- Spare wheel
- ‘Dark Light’ dashboard badging
DS 3 Dark Light is powered by the responsive and highly efficient PureTech 110 S&S petrol engine paired with the brand’s latest generation EAT6 6-speed automatic transmission. This drivetrain provides a rewarding driving experience and smooth automatic gear changes, which is particularly beneficial in stop-start urban driving conditions.
Showcasing the DS brand’s focus on avant-garde design, refinement and attention to detail, the limited edition DS 3 Dark Light was released for sale on Tuesday 1 September, priced at £20,795 OTR. Just 300 examples are available in the UK.
