    I saw one of these today

    [​IMG]

    The peugeot RCZ, its actually went by while I was jumping in my van, and made me think "WHATTTS THAAAT"!

    stats as follows:

    Model Peugeot 308 RCZ
    Engine type 1598cc, four cylinders
    Power 218bhp @ 6000rpm
    Torque 221 lb ft in overboost
    Transmission Six-speed manual
    Fuel/CO2 42.2mpg / 160g/km
    Performance 0-62mph: 7sec
    Top speed: 146mph
    Price £25,000

    It sounded quite nice, as is obviously aimed at the same market as the TT. I wonder if the build quality compliments the looks. A step in the right direction for peugeot Id say :sm4:

    My thoughts exactly, and about 10 years too late.

    What would be funny is if it drove better than the TT.

    yeah not sure how well a peugeot 1.6 turbo would cope. My old gti6 was a well reliable car, and if anything did go wrong, it only cost about 50p to fix it, such a contrast to the audi

    TT rip off, with a worse front end. Doesn't do it for me, but better than some of the stuff Peugeot produces these days.

    I had the 2.0 Hdi GT. A very pleasant car to own and ill be sad to see it go after 2 years of owning it. But the A4 is far far better. The RCZ is a quality car to own and Peugeot sorted out all our problems under warranty. Really cannot wait until Saturday to pick up the Audi.

    It's already been dubbed 'the poor mans TT' and I have yet to se a man driving it. A pose-mobile for girls and 'lifestyle' coaches.
