2006 Peugeot 207 RCup
Geneva International Motor Show (Tuesday 28 February) – The Peugeot 207 will make its world premiere at Geneva and to emphasise the importance of 207, a stylish and sporty concept model will be revealed called the 207 RCup. It’s powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre 16v petrol engine, that produces 280bhp @ 8,500rpm. With a 6-speed sequential gearbox and 18″ alloy wheels the 207 RCup could be the design blueprint for a future Peugeot Sport competition programme.
With a central red stripe running the length of the body, the more sporty shape of the front and rear wings of the 207 RCup, a wider front and rear track than the original 207 and unusually large wheel arches, create a strong aerodynamic design.
The 207 RCup concept car appears to be glued to the road with its lower ground clearance reduced to ten centimeters. It creates an impression that it is ready to take any challenge, with its four 18 inch wheels featuring multiple magnesium spokes and fitted with 235/40 R18 tires.
Its two dual rear exhaust pipes, the deep front air dam containing air extraction ducts in front of the front wheels and the rear roof spoiler designed to increase down force, affirm without doubt, the character of the vehicle.
