New Car: 2014 Peugeot RCZ R

The Peugeot RCZ R was first revealed as a concept car at last year’s Paris Motor Show, but it’s now been given the green light.

And these are the first official pictures of the fastest roadgoing vehicle in the company’s 200-year history.

Thanks to 267bhp from a tuned version of the standard 1.6-litre turbo engine, the new flagship can go from 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds, topping out at an electronically limited 155mph.

A reworked exhaust, new pistons and con-rods and a higher-pressure turbo help free up all the extra power and 330Nm of torque, yet the RCZ R will still manage 44.8mpg and emits just 145g/km CO2.

The new twin-exit exhausts also come with a sound synthesiser similar to the one in the new Ford Fiesta ST, which amplifies sounds from the pipes back into the cabin.

Meanwhile, the suspension has been lowered by 10mm, the track has been widened and there are new dampers for better body control. There are also 19-inch two-tone alloys, which hide larger brake discs and four-pot calipers.

The rear wing is now fixed and the roof pillars are finished in black to distinguish the R from the rest of the range. At the front, a limited-slip Torsen differential has been fitted to help power the RCZ R out of corners, and the whole car is 17kg lighter than the standard RCZ, at just 1,280kg.

Inside, there are new figure-hugging sports seats, red-stitched leather on the dash and a new metal gearknob borrowed from the 208 GTi.

The RCZ R makes its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week, and goes on sale early next year for an expected price of around £32,500. For more details click here.
