As its impending debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show draws nigh, the 2011 Peugeot RCZ has finally bared its full production form in a series of new images. As suggested by the artfully elusive teaser images released in early July, the 2011 Peugeot RCZ is an exercise in sleek, über-luxury performance and bears a striking resemblance to its direct competition, the Audi TT.
Engine specifications for the RCZ will be kept under wraps until its official unveiling, but Peugeot has confirmed at least one of the options will include Peugeot’s new 147kW (200bhp) 1.6-L THP. Also appearing alongside the production RCZ will be a concept hybrid version, dubbed the RCZ HYbrid4, which Peugeot claims will cut CO2 emissions down to just 95g/km. Unlike the standard-gasoline RCZ, however, Peugeot has yet to announce any definitive timetable for the RCZ HYbrid4′s production, but we expect more information to be released following the official introduction.
