The French have the Eiffel Tower, Europe’s most beautiful first lady and the Mona Lisa. The only thing they needed was a cute sports car. Voilà, here it is: The Peugeot RCZ. After two and a half years, time in which Peugeot had the fans on tenterhooks, at the end of April 2010, the coupe concept will at last be at the dealerships.
First impression: It’s a cute and interesting copy of the Audi TT! Design wise, despite the conspicuous borrowings from the germans, the Peugeot RCZ has what it takes to turn the necks of pretty much anybody. From the roof dent à la Zagato to the cheeky hip bend in the flank: Everywhere the eye can discover fascinating details.
The optional leather-covered instrument panel exudes luxury flair. Madness, including a modest 1.6-liter engine are now capable of! Torque and tire rubber some surprisingly quickly and smoothly to grip.
