2010 Peugeot SR1 Concept Car Revealed

2010 Peugeot SR1 Concept Car Revealed

Great looking car, hopefully they don't change it much while it does from concept to production, except for maybe the 3 seat setup, not a huge fan of that. But the looks are fantastic, lets just hope it doesn't have the typical faults of a Peugeot.Typical of a GT, the SR1 features a large sculptured bonnet, flowing wings, a low centre of gravity, sweeping sides and a chiselled rear design. LED headlights are a highlight, as is the new redesigned Lion badge.

The interior layout pattern is a 2+1 type which places two passengers up front and one in the middle rear. Leather and wood accents are evident inside the cabin while so-called high tech materials like nickel and satin-finished chrome adorn various parts. A chic touch is an exclusive wristwatch that fits into a dedicated housing on the fascia panel.

Power is supplied by HYbrid4 technology consisting of a 1.6-litre THP petrol producing 160kW (218hp) and a rear electric motor of 70kW (95hp). Total system output is 230kW (313hp) and AWD is engaged when the two systems are working together. Average fuel consumption is 4.9 litres per 100km while C02 emissions are pegged at 119g/km.

Whilst this looks better than all of those, I can see the Honda OSM Concept at the front and a BMW at the rear (especially with the roof up - like a 6-Series). But more of this design language please Peugeot! And better build quality and plastics. And much less weight. And a better drive. Please?The SR1 will be shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in early March.
