Peugeot finally released photos of the production version of the their new jaw-dropping coupe which will make its debut at the IAA and will go on sale in Spring 2010. Called the RCZ, This coupe is kinda like the French version of the Audi TT, so while it might not be as well-engineered as the German, it has more flavor and passion and sexiness!

In fact emotion and lifestyle are the words Peugeot uses the most to describe this new baby lion. It looks 110 percent different than any other thing on the streets and it has a really cool name as well, RCZ.

Now one may think that this car is just a fashion accessory, and will fail in being a pleasant sportscar. Well, that is something which we’d know after testing it, but by the looks of things, it’s not going to be disappointing. The top of the range model features an all new 1.6 litre THP 147 kW/200 bhp engine, however Peugeot is very focused on reducing emissions and CO2 levels so  their compromise on power is kinda justified. This engine will put out only 139 grams of CO2 every kilometer.

Also in their quest for being more environmentally friendly, a hybrid version of the RCZ will be launched later on which uses Peugeot’s new hybrid system consisting of a 2.0 litre HDi FAP 120 kW (163bhp) in front and a 27 kW (37bhp) electric motor at the rear which means 200hp and four-wheel-drive with only 95 g/km of CO2. Peugeot will also use this system in the upcoming 3008 hybrid4 model.

Peugeot RCZ is a remarkable car, it shows that Peugeot still has some of its sporty spirit. They should be making more of such cars instead of ugly minivans and SUVs!
