Citroen DS 5LS R Concept Revealed

Citroen DS 5LS R Concept 2014

Citroen has unveiled an all-new DS 5LS R concept model which is a unique version of the DS 5LS that will be showcased later this month at the Beijing Motor Show.

Performance

The Citroen DS 5LS R Concept is powered by a 4-cylinder 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine that develops 224 kW and torque of 400 Nm.

The chassis has been lowered by 15mm, and compared to the production version, the concept has received wider front tracks together with a sequential gearbox featuring steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Designers have also used carbon fibre components to help lower weight.

Sporty design features

The DS 5LS R version features a more muscular and sporty design. The model is finished in special anodised Carmine Red paint with a matt metallic finish which is complemented by new carbon fibre trim, a wide side stripe finished in matt grey, as well as R badging and new 20-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the new concept features full leather and Alcantara upholstery, real carbon fibre inserts and Carmine Red inserts on the air vents, and embossed DS logos, while the dashboard, seats, central armrest and upper door panels feature pearl top-stitching in Carmine Red.

The Citroen DS 5LS R concept will be on display between April 20 and 29 at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show in China.
