Citroen have unveiled their new concept car, the DS 5LS R. This car will be officially unveiled at the 2014 Tokyo Motor Show which takes place from 20-29th April.
The Citroen DS 5LS has been on sale in China since last year and a concept “R” version will be shown at the Tokyo Motor show in a couple of weeks. This car will most likely go on sale in China but will not make its way to the UK for some time.
The high performance “R” concept is a very stylish looking car which has plenty curves and has taken a lot of its design from the successful Citroen World Rally Car. The DS 5LS R is a Sport Sedan which has a highly turbocharged 300bhp 1.6L petrol engine.
Compared with the production version of the DS 5LS, the “R” concept version has been lowered by 15mm and has wider front tracks which help improve the handling. It has many carbonfibre components which help reduce the weight, which again improves the overall performance.
Inside the car there is leather upholstery, bucket front seats with race harnesses to give it that real sports feel.
