The new RCZ R coupe is the most powerful production car ever made by Peugeot – producing an impressive 199kW - and is the latest addition to our stunning Coupes & Cabriolets range. An exciting balance of power and precision, it still delivers that distinctive RCZ style, but with a lot more oomph.
The new RCZ R has the signature 'double-bubble' roof and black roof arches, and combines an even lower profile with subtle design flourishes hinting at the performance to come, such as stylish 19" 'R' alloy wheels, front and rear 'R' badging and dual sports exhaust. Flowing into the sculpted curves of the rear wings, which echo the fluid redesign of the front end. From bumper to bumper, the new Peugeot RCZ R is unique, uncompromising and designed to catch your attention. Sports additions like the fixed rear spoiler, two-tone 19" 'R' alloy wheels and the 'R' badge on the front and rear, gives the RCZ R its race car appeal.
The interior of the new RCZ R matches the sophistication of the exterior, with an enhanced dashboard and perfectly positioned instruments. The lines are clean and fluid and the surfaces have a soft, tactile finish. The enhanced dashboard also brings all of the controls into easy reach of the driver and declutters the cabin. The supportive bucket seat is ideal for enjoying the RCZ R's dynamic handling. The small steering wheel, short gear stick, distinct aluminum handle with red trim and new bucket seats with reinforced back support actively contribute to ensuring an enjoyable ride.
Peugeot won the world's first motorsport event, a reliability trial from Paris to Rouen in 1894. We followed with another victory a year later in the world's first speed race from Paris-Bordeaux-Paris. For 120 years, we have continued to demonstrate our motorsport success, winning across multiple disciplines and events. This includes victories in some of the world's most famous motorsport events, such as the World Rally Championship, 24 Hours of Le Mans, Pikes Peak, Dakar and the Indianapolis 500.
The RCZ R has safety at its core. Its dynamic stability control system includes Intelligent Traction Control - a hi-tech anti-skid system, as well as Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Emergency Brake Assist. The new RCZ R has front airbags that can adapt their pressure to the intensity of any impact for increased safety, as well as side airbags built into the seats - a must for any safety-conscious coupé.
The Peugeot Sport engineers have gone over every detail of the car to increase power and performance whilst maintaining that unique RCZ style. The engineering tweaks include an uprated clutch and Formula One grade forged aluminium pistons. The con-rods have been modified to withstand use at high engine speeds. At 199kW the new RCZ R is the most powerful production car Peugeot has ever created, enabling the 1.6 turbo engine to propel the RCZ R from 0-100km/h in just 5.9 seconds.
