The French do fun right
by Jason Tulio | Oct 27, 2017

Weekends are for having fun, right? A time when you can shed the shackles of your everyday grind and let your hair down, even for just a couple of days. A chance for you to unwind, relax, and recharge for the challenges that lie ahead. And what's a good way to achieve all those things? Going for a drive in your car, of course! This is Top Gear Philippines, after all.

While some folks like their weekend jaunts to be a steady cruise at a manageable speed, there are some who prefer more of an adrenaline rush. There's less traffic on weekends, so why not push your car to its limits--while still respecting the road rules, of course. There's no autobahn-ing around these parts. If you have a few milllion pesos in change lying around, you could even buy a car for this exact purpose. A ride that's not roomy or practical enough to be used daily, but perfect for your weekend guilty pleasure. Something like the Peugeot RCZ.

Full disclosure, this French two-door coupe is expensive, cramped in the rear, and not exactly hump-friendly. But boy, is it fun to be in. Once you make use of its 1.6-liter turbo engine and low center of gravity, you learn just why cars like this have their place in the world. To find out more, watch our video review.
