The 308 RCZ

After presenting to you the new Citroen DS3, I would like to present the new Peugeot’s 308 RCZ which was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The 308 RC-Z is based on the same platform as the 308 and the Citroen C4 (which also underpins the new Citroen DS3). Power is likely to come from a choice of 1.6 litre turbos – 220bhp or 150bhp. The 308 RC-Z is considered like a competitor for the Audi TT because the 308 RC Z is claimed to deliver 218 horsepower while weighing in at a mere 1,200 kilos.

It is the creation of 33-year-old German designer Boris Reinmöller who took a bit of Audi TT plus a bit of Nissan 350 Z and mixed them together in a unique blend. Personally I can see it just one time into
the PSA Peugeot Citroen Vélizy site and I remember that the engine’s noise was so spectacular that everybody turn and look. It could have been a plane !
