Peugeot is stepping it up...

A few weeks ago, a former colleague of mine told me about Peugeot bringing in a very interesting piece some time this year. It wasn't until recently that she managed to give me a name for that new model. It's the Peugeot RCZ. The model name sounds more appropriate for one of my RC cars but that aside, the car is absolutely stunning!

Those voluptuous curves look like an automotive representation of how Liv Tyler would be if she had four wheels and an engine. On closer inspection though you start to see some subtle hints of the Audi TT's design cues. Just to add to the individuality, Peugeot will be offering owners a choice of different trims to go with their posemobile. Including an option for a carbon fibre roof, roof arches in different colours (like matt black, polished black, dark grey, diamante) and black lacquered body parts at the front, carbon door mirror covers, bodywork detailing.

Peugeot is selling it as a 2+2 and we all know what that means right? It's essentially a two seater with a pair of child seats in the back. The kind of seats where you only put kids that are not your own. Despite the refreshingly sensuous curves, the car is still mostly 308 underneath.

Power is derived from a 1.6-litre turbocharged unit that churns out 156bhp at 5800rpm. Like I said earlier, this is more of a posemobile than an all out performance model from the French manufacturer. But with such good looks, why would you want be a flash of insignificance when you can take in the admiring glances as you take your time to cruise by?

Nevertheless I can't wait to get my hands on this Pug considering how much fun I had shooting the equally pretty 308CC awhile back.

A big fan of Porsche’s 911 series, he believes that there's no purer power than the 3.6-litre twin charged flat six found in a 997 Turbo.

Peugeot has been developing RC series concept cars for quite some time already. Previous RC concepts were radical in design and even had diesel engines but no intention of production. This one on the other hand is likely to make it to production.
