Peugeot RCZ Finds Its Chosen One, Orders Explode

Following Peugeot’s recent ‘It Chooses You’ competition which took place on the brand’s Facebook page, the chosen winner, Matthew Stollery was presented with the keys to his brand new RCZ. At the same time, demand for the car already exceeded over half the 2010 production allocation in just five weeks.

“I’m so happy. I still can’t believe I have won this sleek, sexy, amazing car!” said Stollery. “Although I enter competitions regularly I have never won anything before so I am really looking forward to driving back to Wales in it and showing it off to my friends and colleagues at the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service,” the 31-year old fireman stated.

The French carmaker also announced it is expanding the range availability in the UK with more petrol-powered versions: a THP 156 automatic and the more powerful THP 200 models, in both Sport and GT trim levels.

The THP 200 version, fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox, also comes with a distinctive double-bubble roof. It is also equipped with the Sports Kit, that includes a small diameter steering wheel and a short, quick-throw gear lever, as standard.

“Wow, what a month for the newly launched Peugeot RCZ. It’s already a multi-award winner and was rapturously received at launches up and down the country, and across the world.  Demand for RCZ has also been unprecedented, so the new models will be a welcome extension to the range. Matthew was certainly ‘the chosen one’ in our RCZ Facebook ‘It Chooses You’ campaign, so I imagine he drove off to Wales with a grin as wide as the Severn Bridge!” UK Managing Director Jon Goodman said in a release.
