    Peugeots TT

    Re: Peugeots TT

    From TopGear:
    "Peugeot has unveiled a TT rivalling coupe concept - the 308 RC Z.

    The, er, challenging looking concept debuts at the Frankfurt motor show in September and is powered by a 218bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine - a development of the 207 GTi's turbocharged motor.

    This engine is likely to make it into a hotter 207 model in the future.

    Based on the same platform as the upcoming 308 hatch, the RC has a top speed of 146mph and does 0-62mph in 7.0 seconds. There are also larger brakes and extensive use of aluminium.

    Inside, the dash is almost identical to the 308 hatch's, while the occasional rear seats can be folded to make a luggage platform.

    Peugeot reckons the 308 RC is good enough to take on the Audi TT, so it had better be pretty when we see it in the metal in Frankfurt.

    First impressions aren't good though. It looks like a TT that's driven into the back of a 207... "

    Sorry if old news...

    I dont think its that bad really...far from being beautiful, buts its quite aggresive

    Re: Peugeots TT

    I bet it's going to be FWD...

    Re: Peugeots TT

    Wow.... that thing looks like a cartoonish mess to my eyes. Every styling cue from the grille to the wheel arches is over emphasised. Peugeot should leave the design of their coupes to Pininfarina who did a good job with the 406. The 407 in-house styled coupe is hardly beautiful but this takes things to a new low IMHO

    Re: Peugeots TT

    And you'd win that bet...

    "Based on the Peugeot 308, the RC Z ditches its traditional three- and five-door configuration for a sporty 2+2 coupe body style. While traces of Audi TT are clearly visible in the design, the 308 RC Z remains very distinctive overall, with a large front grille and double-bubble roof styling. An emphasis was placed on weight savings, with some body panels, including the roof, being made out of carbon fiber, and the extensive use of aluminum in the suspension. Dripping wet, the 308 RC Z weighs in at a relatively svelte 2,646 pounds.
    Power comes from a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that provides 218 horsepower to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, specially developed for the 308 RC Z. An overboost function ramps up maximum torque from 206 lb-ft to 221 lb-ft -- handy for quick starts off the line or when you're trying to make a freeway pass. Peugeot claims a 0-62 mph run in 7.0 seconds and a top speed of around 146 mph. Four-piston front brake calipers and 14.2-inch discs fitted underneath 19-inch alloys to haul the RC Z back down from speed.

    Depending on public reaction in Frankfurt, Europe could be seeing the Peugeot 308 RC Z on its roads in the near future."

    Carbon Fibre, overboost.... who they trying to kid

    Re: Peugeots TT

    I knew I'd seen this somewhere before. It's the lovechild of the 307CC and the Chevy SSR

    Re: Peugeots TT

    Nice effort from the french manufacturer, but the back angle looks wierd, maybe will look better in real life. Front wheel drive could be a problem as these type of roadster are associated with rear WD...

    Re: Peugeots TT

    that must be a stupid joke... wtf is that?? omg looks like the nissan 350Z. horrific.

    Re: Peugeots TT

    the TT has won awards for its design if im not mistaken. its gonna take something extraoridnarily designed or uberfast to outshine it. not gonna happend with Cayman rear bumpers and 350Z taillights.

    Re: Peugeots TT

    looks like a 350z crossed with a TT that has a Peugot badge...
