Citroën's CLA45 AMG For China Is Funky, Fun, And Named Like A Camera

Citroën will bring this handsome little fellow to this year's Beijing Auto Show, the DS 5LS R Concept which, as it turns out, isn't a camera but a car. In fact, it's the performance version of the DS 5LS which is exclusively sold in China.

The DS 5LS R makes an impressive 300hp and 295 ft/lbs of torque from a rather diminutive 1.6-liter turbocharged four cylinder which is routed through some sort of sequential gearbox with paddle shifters. Citroën has lowered the chassis by 15mm as well as widened front track. They've also employed the usage carbon fiber components, though the capacity of which isn't specified.

In the interior you'll find leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber trim all of which are de rigueur for any car with sporting pretensions these days.

All and all, a pretty neat little concept for the French automaker, and somewhat of a shame that it won't be sold elsewhere. It would provide a great foil to the CLA45 AMG & the Audi S3.
