While maintaining the main design elements of the base model and of the DS line, the exterior of the DS 5LS R incudes a number of distinctive changes, like the wide side stripes in matt carbon grey on the front doors and the anodised Carmine Red paint with a matt metallic finish.

Further carbon fiber components include the side signature trim, which extends across the top of the side windows to the boot, cutting through the rear quarter panel with a subtly drawn shark fin.

The ‘DS Wings’ grille is finished in carbon grey dark chrome and the sporty 20-inch wheels are sculpturally designed and carbon-coloured to match the polished aluminium on the exterior and the of Carmine Red.

Inside, DS 5LS R includes a wide range of exceptional materials in evidence. The cabin is fully lined with leather and Alcantara®, including the dashboard and steering wheel.

There are also real carbon fiber inserts on the steering wheel, door panels and door handles, together with Carmine Red touches for the air vents.
