New Citroen concept sports sedan
The Citroen brand presents the new concept of sports sedan.
As you may know, currently the Citroën auto manufacturer is working on development its new sub brand DS, which is the exclusive luxury brand oriented to the Chinese auto manufacturer.
Las year the auto manufacturer presented its first car of the DS brand –it was the compact sedan 5LS. Nowadays, we are expecting to take a look at the next novelty –the 5LS R, which will be introduced at the show in Beijing in a couple of weeks.
The future novelty is equipped with the Citroen’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing the output of 300 horsepower with the torque of 295 lb-ft. In addition, the model will get the sequential transmission including paddle shifters as well.
The novelty gets a lower chassis but wider track in front to increase the car’s performance. Moreover, the car is made of lightweight materials including the carbon fiber to reduce the vehicle’s weight.
Currently, the auto manufacturer has not declared about starting the 5LS R production yet; anyway, the Citroen carmaker is working on development more new models for its DS brand in the future. The upcoming model will be a new SUV built on the Wild Rubus concept presented last year and a new luxury sedan built on the Numero 9 concept introduced two years ago.
