Peugeot is set to debut its most powerful production model ever in the RCZ R at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.
Previewed as the RCZ R Concept at the Paris and Geneva Motor Shows, the production model utilizes a 1.6-liter THP engine that produces 260hp. The French carmaker added that the RCZ R will be a benchmark with its power/capacity among the highest in the world for production vehicles at over 160hp/L "with carbon dioxide emissions targeted at just 155g/km."
Peugeot also promises that the RCZ R has the dynamic capability to match its power output, with a bespoke suspension setup, a specific and distinctive wheel design, and a Torsen limited-slip differential "to harness the huge reserves of power and torque available."
According to Peugeot, the RCZ R will go on sale "at the end of the year."
