Peugeot - 1007 RC
Only recently unveiled, the innovative 1007 is already causing a stir.
With the design of the original car giving it both elegance and dynamism, designers embarked on an exercise in styling that would strengthen its personality still further.
The 1007 is a car with multiple facets. In this « RC » livery, the 1007 reveals a more sporty and exclusive character, whilst retaining a certain realism.
This exercise in styling is firmly supported on 18'' alloy wheels with a « forked » design and a « chrome shadow » finish. Through the wheels, black lacquered brake calipers with the Peugeot name painted in white are visible.
The headlamps are highlighted by chrome trims, which make the headlamps stand out, while the grille itself is circled with a chrome bead. The door mirror deflectors have a carbon finish and an RC badge is located in the extension of each door rail.
At the rear, an aerodynamic black spoiler extends the roof. At the bottom of the rear bumper skirt, there is a grille with a chrome-plated surround, from each end of which protrudes a chrome-plated exhaust trim.
The passenger compartment is also distinctive, thanks to a leather-lined fascia panel with visible stitching, evident also on the steering wheel and door panels.
The roof and fittings receive a deep grey alcantara finish.
The central console has a carbon finish, while the rim of the air vents is brushed aluminium.
At the top of the front seat backs there is a badge with the RC emblem.
To complete the exercise, three special and naturally interchangeable Caméléo interior trims have been reserved for the 1007 RC; the first is « Titane », with seat inserts, door pane inserts and rear armrest covers in perforated grey alcantara with matching fascia panel trims in the same material, the passenger side having a pocket style finish.
The second RC Caméléo called « Fusion » is red, while the third, « Cadmium », is saffron yellow.
To power this 1007 RC, the 1.6 litre 4-cylinder engine with double overhead camshafts and 16 valves offers a power of 105 kW or around 140 bhp. The wheels and suspension are from the standard 1007 range.
