Peugeot RCZ R set to make international debut

JonathanJune 11, 2013

Peugeot’s most powerful street legal car, the RCZ R, will soon be showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The French car maker’s new model is a revolutionary combination of the original Peugeot RCZ concept car and the award-winning Nurburgring race car.

The new model builds on Peugeot’s rich history of building fuel-efficient, compact engines to power high-performance vehicles. As such, the Festival of Speed is the perfect place to showcase the racetrack-inspired, road-going sports car.

The highly anticipated model features a 1.6-litre high pressure turbocharged engine, making it the most powerful road-going car ever made by Peugeot. It has extremely low CO2 emissions, coming in at under 155g/km. As such, the RCZ R model strikes a balance between superior power and eco-friendly design.

To optimise efficiency, the model has a unique suspension set-up which harnesses power and torque to deliver premium performance.

Two concept cars will be featured at the festival, marking the model’s first public appearance. UK Peugeot 208 GTi ambassador, Bradley Philpot, will test drive the RCZ R.  Mr Philpot has racetrack experience behind the wheel of Peugeot sports cars, having been a finalist in last month’s Nurburgring 24-hour race. As such, he will be able to show off the new RCZ R’s sporty features better than most.

The new model is set to be released later this year – a debut that’s sure to attract the attention of Peugeot loyalists the world over.

In the meantime, Peugeot RCZ Coupe is available for hire, offering a superior combination of sleek curves, stylish design and performance. This particular model gets 44.1 MPG and has relatively low CO2 emissions of 149 g/km. Its powerful 1598CC engine will take you from 0 to 62MPH in just 8.2 seconds. Business contracts for the RCZ Couple are available at highly competitive rates, starting at only £250.12 per month.

Wherever you’re going, and whatever your business needs, arrive in style in a world-class RCZ. Contact UK Carline to learn more about the best car leasing deals.
