Citroen’s maddest DS yet

08.04.2014

OVER in China, Citroën recently introduced the DS 5LS, which is a longer version of the brand’s large performance car.

Now, a racing version dubbed the DS 5LS R concept will be making its debut at the Beijing Motor Show.

The DS 5LS R takes the design aesthetic of the regular DS 5LS a step further with a curvier, more sporty appearance.The bite should match the bark too with its 1.6-litre turbocharged engine producing a mammoth 224kW and 400Nm.

The chassis is also 15mm lower than the standard model while the gearbox is a sequential unit that swaps cogs via steering-mounted paddles. There has been extensive work done on the chassis, brakes and visual accents such as a real carbon-fibre bumper panel, air vents and lower body panel.
