Powerhouse Peugeot will cost you nearly €53,000
THE most powerful road-going car Peugeot has produced has just arrived – and will cost you nearly €53,000
The two-seater 270bhp RCZ R is, according to the maker, like no other Peugeot they have made.
Powering it is a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine which outstrips that in the 'normal' RCZ by 70bhp – and races from 0-100kmh in 5.9 seconds. That amount of oomph brings its own stresses and strains and has necessitated a complete overhaul of nearly every component by engineers at Peugeot Sport in Paris.
With a special suspension and increased spring stiffness, it also sits 10mm lower than the RCZ.
Standard spec includes sports front seats, leather/alcantara upholstery, 19ins alloys, rear spoiler, dual sports exhaust, cruise control and speed limiter, automatic dual zone air con, front/rear parking aids, Bluetooth etc.
