The Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe

November 26, 2012 0 By Rodney Burrell

 The 2013 Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe will go on sale this January in the UK offering an astoundingly sporty and comprehensive sports car for under 40k.

The 1.6 liter turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine produces 200 hp with a top speed of 149mph and a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds. The 2013 Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe made its prescense felt this year at the 24 hours of  Nürburgring in SP2T class.

Stylistically, The RCZ offers drivers an aggressive profile with a double bubble glass roof, claw shaped LED head lighting and completely customizable exterior including body work, grill options, mirrors, and decals.

Standard on the RCZ  Sport Edition are a smaller diameter steering wheel, shorter gear lever and the ‘Sound System’ feature.

The Sound system actually enhances the sound of the engine  through all six gears of acceleration. Don’t worry, it’s rather tame at lower rpms, but rather impressive when you get on the gas a bit.

Other creature comforts include an enhanced sound system and a standard SOS system that alerts authorities during emergencies.

Overall The 2013 Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe gives UK drivers something to smile about.

Even if the sport model is not within their price range, the base model offers a 163 hp diesel and 156 hp gasoline version that rings in under 30k. Enjoy the pictures and the video.FYI, don’t pay any attention to the techno music, it’s that  whole euro dance thing.
