The Peugeot 207 RC

At the recent Geneva Motor Show Peugeot unveiled the 207 RC, which is the fruit of cooperation with BMW.

The 207 RC has the same 4.037 m length as the 3-door 207. At the front it features an air intake with metallic finish, circular fog lamps with chrome surrounds and immense headlamps.

There are also a raised spoiler on the tailgate, 17-inch wheels and a trapezoid chrome dual exhaust nozzle.

Other sporty touches include headlamps with a dark black chrome mask, a dark tinted rear windscreen and rear quarter panels and door mirror shells with a satin chrome finish.

The 1.6 litre turbo-charged engine is a new member of the petrol engine family and derives from cooperation between PSA Peugeot Citroën and the BMW Group.

It develops 128 kW at 6 000 r/min while maximum torque of 240 Nm is reached at only 1 600 r/min and this value remains unchanged up to 4 500 r/min. Top speed is 220 km/h while it takes the 207 RC 7.1 seconds to go from 0-100 km/h
