Describing the model-making process, Barter said how keen he was to be part of it, saying: "When I was initially approached by CitroŽn about this, I was really excited. It's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience so I jumped at the chance.

The most enjoyable, and perhaps most challenging part was working with a DS3 to get the mould for the car, purely because it's not something that I've done before and it was very important to get the mould right."

Citroen is planning a dealer tour later in the year and the model will also be on show at various events throughout the summer.
