Peugeot is unveiling the RCZ R, a more powerful version of its sports coupé, symbolic of the marque's expertise in design and driving sensations.
Its new 270 hp engine with a capacity of 1.6 l and CO2 emissions limited to just 145g/km place the RCZ R at an unheard-of level of performance and efficiency.
"Every component designed specifically for the RCZ R contributes to its new dynamic performance and sublimates the pure, sleek, style of the RCZ which gives it its own identity. "
Pierre Paul Mattei, RCZ Style Manager
thanks to a new spoiler, which favours stability at high speed, without reducing the drag.
Adorned with Matt Black arches and headlamps with an understated Titanium tint, the RCZ R sets itself apart with sporting attributes favouring its dynamic effectiveness and treated with refinement.
Its special wheel rims, two-tone diamond / matt black, are signed with an 'R' milled directly into the alloy. They have been designed to house and optimise the cooling of the new larger brakes and the red calipers at the front are signed 'Peugeot Sport'.
The large fixed rear spoiler, perfectly integrated, guarantees improved aerodynamic downforce while extending the silhouette from the rear view.
Instruments and controls which awaken the senses
From the door sill bearing the Peugeot Sport logo, the sporty and exclusive character is reinforced.
The red overstitching runs across the soft, enhanced material of the dashboard, as well as the leather on the steering wheel, the gear lever gaiter, the door trim pads, the armrests and the seats.
"Descending" into his vehicle, the driver discovers an ergonomic driving position, ideal for savouring the dynamic qualities of his RCZ R. The small steering wheel, the short gear lever, the special gear knob in aluminium highlighted with red and the new bucket seats developed by Peugeot Sport - with reinforced support and consistent with the level of performance of the RCZ R - actively contribute to the driving sensations.
Dynamic and sporty sensations
The performance and agility of the RCZ R are also the result of fine-tuning meetings and circuit tests, in particular with the Peugeot Sport test drivers.
The RCZ R will have its world première at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013 and will go on sale at the beginning of 2014.
