Green light for the 308 RCZ
The 308 RC-Z concept car has been given the green light and should hit the showrooms sometime in 2009.
Company sources reveal that the future coupé will be built by Magna in Austria and will be based on the PF2 platform used by the 308 and the C4. Secrecy surrounds the future car and one doesn't know whether the car will get specific chassis tuning. The concept car was powered by a 175bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine taken from the 207 RC. This petrol unit might be a bit too weak so, Peugeot will likely feature a bigger engine under the hood.
This is very good news for Peugeot as recent PSA CEO Christian Streiff statements remain unclear. If by “reliability, trust and elegance”, he meant 308 RCZ, we are eagerly waiting the future company's lineup.
