Peugeot is using the 2004 Paris Motor Show to unveil several new concept cars.
The 907 is Peugeot’s view of how the ultimate GT car should look. Powered by a 6.0 litre V12 engine, developing power of around 500 bhp, it also features a sequentially controlled 6-speed manual gearbox. The carbon fibre body boasts an interior that is functional yet oozes genuine class: leather and Alcantara for the passenger compartment, wood for the steering wheel and gear lever.
Focused on alternative fuel innovation, the Quark extends the fuel cell technologies already demonstrated on the Taxi PAC and H2O concepts. It is powered by four electric motors, one in each wheel. Thanks to the optimal configuration and design of all the components, the Quark demonstrates the level of performance offered today by fuel cell technology, with a range extended to 80 miles and all in a compact unit with a length of 2.38 m and a width of 1.5 m.
The 1007 RC study accompanies the launch of the 1007 and, according to Peugeot, “demonstrates its ability to alter its identity.” The 140 bhp 1007 RC concept sits on 18″ alloy wheels and is finished in an Onyx Black paint, with a black leather and Alcantara interior.
Peugeot also announced a new engine for the slow-selling 607 – the 2.7-litre V6 HDi, jointly developed with Ford and available in the new Land Rover Discovery and diesel Jaguar S-Type. However, it won’t be making an appearance in the UK.
