Peugeot reveals new cars ahead of Paris Motor Show

The Peugeot 2008 Concept car and an updated version of the manufacturer's RCZ Sports Coupe have been revealed.

Both vehicles are sure to catch the attention of drivers in all corners of the country, with the 2008 Concept billed as an athletic car which comes complete with an eye-catching bodywork design and the new RCZ Sports Coupe sure to give even the most luxurious of Porsches and Ferrari models a run for their money.

Prepare to be dazzled by the Peugeot 2008 Concept

While people will want to know what's hiding under the bonnet of a car and all the ins and outs about its speed and power before they part with their cash, there is no doubt that the bodywork of the Peugeot 2008 Concept will have many lost for words.

To say the car's exterior style is unique would be a massive understatement, as the fluorescent yellow with velvet matt varnish hints at a vehicle that is full of energy and, most definitely, will never get lost in the crowd.

Dark chrome details, which can be seen around the grille of the vehicle, as well as along the bottom of doors and on the Peugeot logo, finish off this quirky look.

It is not just all eye candy with the Peugeot 2008 Concept though, with a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder engine being fitted to the car that helps it achieve turbo and direct injection.

The motor also allows the vehicle to boast a maximum power output of 110bhp, while keeping fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to low levels.

Design the Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe around you

The personalisation options on offer for the exterior of the new Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe are vast, that much is for sure.

As is standard with many cars, the vehicle comes with the choice of eight base colour coats – opal white, pearlescent white, nera black, mercury grey, charcoal grey, dolphin blue, bistre and Moroccan red.

However, buyers can then decide whether to have the RCZ Sports Coupe's roof arch in aluminium, sand or matte black and peruse through ten alloy wheel designs.

Even the grille of the RCZ Sports Coupe is available in either standard satin chrome design or a lacquered black alternative, depending on which style takes one's fancy.

More is expected to be seen of the Peugeot 2008 Concept and the RCZ Sports Coupe at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, which kicks off later this month.
