In China, the DS 5LS is makes itself known with distinctive styling elements like the "DS Wings" on the front grille, but the new concept car takes it one step further. The performance sedan is fitted with a 1.6-liter turbo-four that makes 300 hp. Citoen also lowered the suspension a half inch, widened the track, and outfitted it with beefier brakes and 20-inch wheels. The concept's sheetmetal shines in a matte metallic fuschia exterior paint color that contrasts with carbon fiber trim pieces. Inside, the DS 5LS R concept is all about luxury as it's swathed in leather and Alcantara. The same fuschia color (Carmine Red) is used for the contrast stitching, and carbon fiber inserts appear on elements such as the door panels and steering wheel. There's no forgetting the name of this concept either, as the "R" logo is plastered all over. MotorTrend Image© Provided by MotorTrend MotorTrend Image
