Peugeot SR1 Concept - click above for high-res image gallery

When we first saw the Peugeot SR1 Concept, we were less than impressed. Why? The press photos just didn't do the car any justice. But here in person at the Geneva Motor Show, the SR1 Concept has us drooling. First of all, the proportions are spectacular. Long hood, short deck, wide, low – just a great, potent stance coupled to classic proportions. Also, this here Peugeot is one of the rare convertibles that looks just as good top on or off.

There's a boat load of fancy tech that comes with this concept car (all of which you can read about here). The long story told short is the SR1 Concept is a turbo-diesel hybrid that makes 313 total horsepower and gets 48 miles per gallon. It also has a four-wheel-drive, through-the-road HYbrid4 tech, The plastic roof uses sailboat technology and the instruments are displayed via crystal tubes. But as most of the SR1 Concept's bells and whistles won't ever see production, we'll just go ahead and enjoy this stunning show car for what it is: beautiful.

      The French are the qinese of Europe. They copy from everybody: Audi, Lamborghini, Hyundai, Kia, you name it.

      SCHWING!

      And for once, I'm not talking about the girl.

      That thing looks like a cheap version of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Ugly but cool for a French maker.

      Not bad looking...

      but one wonders if it would be easier to cut the hoodline from the inboard corners of the headlights to the corners of the grille, and across the top of the grille opening, rather than cutting all the way down through the front fascia.

      But then again, it is french.

      The engine is not a turbo-diesel but a petrol engine. This is the first time Peugeot associates it with its hybrid technology, which might mean that Peugeot would finally decide to also equip petrol engines with it (but nothing official for now).

      At 1st glance I thought this was a Aston Martin Vantage V8.
        • 5 Years Ago
        My thoughts exactly.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I kinda think it looks a little like a 6-series BMW. Regardless, the concept looks pretty sharp.

      Looks almost Aston-like on the exterior.
        • 5 Years Ago
        That was my thought "Wow, so Peugeot makes an Aston and Aston makes a Peugeot"?
        • 5 Years Ago
        WOW! "HEY GM, WANT SOME IDEAS?"
        • 5 Years Ago
        I was thinking along the same lines

        also, shows Jaguar what the headlights on the XF could have been - cause right now that is the only sore spot on that car's exterior design

        I agree, but it still looks like a hardcore Peugeot. They pulled this off well - better than that monstrosity "5"
        • 5 Years Ago
        Indeed it does, I'm officially a fan of this car! It's spot on!

        Drool ;)
