Peugeot To Offer TT-Fighting 308 Coupe
Peugeot will be making a production version of its double-bubble-roofed 308 RC Z Coupe concept, shown at last year's International Automobil Aufstellung in Frankfurt. Auto Motor und Sport says the 2+2 coupe will keep the styling shown in the concept , which is no bad thing. An earlier Auto Motor und Sport report says the concept sported a 1.6-liter turbo-four with 218hp and up to 300nm of torque with overboost. Whether that engine makes it to the road remains to be seen, but let's hope the production model doesn't gain much weight beyond the 2,600 pound concept. The 308 Coupe will go on sale in the spring of 2010, although not in the states (of course). Even so, we'll be keeping an eye out for photos from this year's IAA where the 308 Coupe will debut, 'cause we unrequited love is love nonetheless.
From some angles it sort of looks like an updated version of the Karmann Ghia.
In the year two-thooouuuusaaaaannd and 10, In the yeeeeaaaaar twoooo-thooooouuuuusaaaaaaand and te-e-en, oil serves as the nutritious meal of choice, the first contact with alien life has been made, Michael Jackson has produced an award winning children's book, the Buick Volt is selling like crazy, and a 2600lb Peugeot freedom car is for sale in the US.
The 308 is ugly, but a 218hp 1.6 turbo? Ymmmmm.
Ausstellung is an exhibition, aufstellung is a list schedule. ;-)
