The RC ideas are the initial move towards a Peugeot two-seater supercar. The RC Spade and RC Diamond are the main generation commendable ideas peugeot have discharged in the last couple years. The two autos are basically indistinguishable, aside from the motors, one of which is diesel.
Empahsis amid configuration was on lightweight development. This is apparent from the cabon fiber monocoque and clay plate brakes. The lightweight development is neccessary with the unassuming 170 HP bolstered from the 2 liter motor. The powertrain is fairly surprising. The little inline-4 motor sits transversly straightforwardly overtop the back hub. While this takes out the requirement for a driveshaft, weight conveyance is the principal thing which Peugeot have not tended to.

The shell houses the fuel tank and joins the front suspension and controlling associations and, at the back, the mountings of a tubular trellis sub-outline which bolsters the force train.
Reverberating the modern and donning attributes of the autos’ outside, stainless steel, aluminum and calfskin have been utilized all through the inside, with the cowhide upholstered carbon fiber basin seats highlighting engine dashing style saddle safety belts. The material and calfskin secured seats proceed with the red and dark topic.
The calfskin upholstered belt board houses a “chronograph” instrument board with both computerized rate and simple rev counter readouts.
