Peugeot RCZ-Facelift

After premiering at the  2012 Paris Motor Show event, PSA-Peugeot finally began selling Peugeot RCZ Facelift sports car in Europe with the first market is UK. Finished in a striking blend of matt black and copper, to match the Onyx supercar, the RCZ R uses a tuned version of the 1.6-litre turbocharged THP engine. It’s the same engine Citroen fitted to its DS4 Racing concept, seen at the Geneva Motor Show back in March.

For those who like their cars a little less extreme, the standard model has received a round of updates, too. The most significant is the all-new front end, which replaces the old grille and nose taken from the 308 hatch.

Lower, motorsport-derived suspension, grippy tyres, lightweight wheels and a Torsen limited-slip differential on the front axle will ensure it has the handling to match its power. It’s inspired by newer models such as the 208 and 508, while the central air intake has shrunk and is highlighted by two chrome bars that run along the top for a more restrained look.

Running underneath is another wider air intake which flows into a pair of LED daytime running lights. The six LED bulbs are arranged in a claw pattern in a nod towards Peugeot’s lion badge. The interior is largely left alone, besides a new lacquer black gearshift surround and leather door inserts on top-spec GTs.

More personalisation options will be offered, though. There are three colours for the roof arches – Aluminium, Sand or Matt Black – while an optional Black Pack brings together the Matt Black arches with black bars in the grille, black brake callipers and black wing mirrors.
