Curious what cool and very fast French cars will be making their debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year? Look no further than this 600 horsepower diesel-electric hybrid concept from Peugeot.
Revealed last year at the Paris Motor Show, the Onyx concept is a tribute to both French design and engineering. It features a hand-crafted copper body, expensive use of carbon fiber and a dashboard made entirely out of recycled newspapers.

Problem is, you can't buy it. What you can buy and watch at Goodwood is the new supermini hot hatch from Peugeot, the 208 GTi. A proper performance car, it features a 1.6-liter engine developing 197bhp (200 PS) and is capable of reaching reaching 62mph in 6.8 seconds, can top 143mph, has CO2 at just 139g/km and yet can achieve 47.9mpg.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
