Our man on the ground in Paris John Neff is reporting on one the most imposing, scariest car at the show: the sinister Peugeot 908 RC. The concept sedan shares its engine with the 908 Le Mans , a 5.5-liter HDi V12 turbodiesel pumping out an earth-shattering 700 horsepower, driving through a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Constructed of a carbon composite and aluminum, the sedan is capable of reaching over 300 km/h and covering a kilometer from a standstill in a scant 22 seconds. To get the enormous 5-meter-long sedan back to a standstill, the car is equipped with the latest carbon ceramic brakes from Brembo with 6 pistons up front and four in the rear.

Check out our previous posts for the full specs and even a couple of videos, and follow the jump for more photos from the show floor, factory-sourced press pics, and even a few design sketches.
