Citroen’s C2 meets the Ministry

Citroen has teamed up with Ministry of Sound to produce a pair of limited-run C2 special editions.

Only 2,000 C2 Ministry of Sound models will be available, fitted with Sony’s latest Xplod MP3/CD player, powering six uprated 2-way speakers capable of handling the head unit’s 200W peak power output.

The interior features the Ministry of Sound logo on the speakers, door sills, CD holder and as a chrome badge on the C2’s rear. The dash also sees a new aluminium effect finish to the air vent and fascia surrounds.

The C2 Ministry Of Sound VTR comes with a 110hp 1.6i 16V petrol engine that accelerates from 0-62mph in 10.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 121mph. Citroen’s SensoDrive clutchless transmission is also available on this model.

For the more frugally-minded, there’s also a 75hp 1.4i Ministry of Sound Furio model.

Standard equipment on both includes front foglamps, variable power steering, electric front windows and door mirrors, remote central locking with deadlocks, body-coloured bumpers, side skirts, rear spoiler and chrome tailpipe. The VTR adds an anti-theft alarm and 16″ alloys.

Available from 1st June, the Furio costs £9,495 and slots into insurance group 3. The VTR version is £11,295 and insurance group 6. Servicing is every 20,000 miles and both enjoy a three year warranty.
