The 2010 Peugeot RCZ is the production version of the Peugeot 308 RCZ Coupe concept from the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The original concept was well received by both the press and public when it was unveiled, and thankfully the RCZ has remained faithful to the original design. Even some of the more extravagant styling cues like the little flick-up in the side window line, double-bubble roof, aluminium "roof arches", and bulging wheel arches have been carried over.
The RCZ is intended to mark a new chapter in Peugeot's history. The car is supposed to be a specialist vehicle built in small numbers (for a major manufacturer like Peugeot), and rekindle a sense of driving excitement for the brand. Due to the special nature of the RCZ, it will be built by Magna Steyr in Austria in a production centre that specialises in exclusive vehicles built in small volumes.
