Beijing Motor Show to host Citroen DS 5LS R concept premiere

Beijing Motor Show to host Citroen DS 5LS R concept premiere

The latest in Citroen technology will be unveiled at this month's Beijing Motor Show from April 20th - 29th - the DS 5LS R concept. 

It is based on the existing DS 5LS, which is currently making its mark in the Chinese market, but will be a high-performance, luxury version of the model. 

The car also takes its cues from the DS3 Cabrio Racing and DS4 Racing vehicles from Citroen, meaning the car really pushes the boundaries when it comes to speed, handling and power. 

Under the bonnet will be a 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine, capable of producing 300 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. 

In order to improve performance, the chassis has been lowered by 15mm and the car features a sequential gearbox which can be controlled using paddles located behind the steering wheel. 

As well as delivering quality performance, the car is also luxurious in its exterior and interior styling. The body will be displayed in Beijing in the Carmine Red colour scheme, featuring a matt carbon grey stripe on the front doors.

The inside is decked out in leather and Alcantara, with the dashboard and steering wheel covered in this material.
