Spyshots: 2010 Peugeot 308 RC-Z
Of course, the spyshots here show the car wearing a bit of camo and we can all see how much the manufacturer tried to make the car as unappealing as possible. Still, the general lines of the car are visible, so you can make an idea of how car will look in the end.
We did and to be honest, it seems like something missing here. For some reason, the oversized, Airbus Beluga like front end of the car doesn't fit right with the Audi TT inspired back end. The previous generation Audi TT, from which the RC-Z was inspired looks much, much smoother than the 308.
Even if the 308 RC-Z seems to be an odd mix, it will most likely be an interesting appearance to the market. Price wise, it is yet unclear whether the 308 will be priced in the 35,000-45,000 euro range where you can find the TT. If it's priced lower, this could translate into a worthy opponent for the Germans. If it will wear a similar price tag, we would go for the TT.
The upcoming September Frankfurt Auto Show is the likely place for the debut of the production version of the 308 RC-Z.
