Peugeot will soon be celebrating its 200th anniversary and, to help strike the proper tone, it has created an all-new electric sports car bearing the alphanumeric appellation EX1, which it will show at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Apparently, the French automaker decided to put all of its oh-la-la into the design rather than the name because this, friends, is electric sex on wheels.
Don't believe us? Run through the images in the gallery below that detail the machine's journey from design and
What makes the EX1 so special? Well, look at it! From the front, the sides, from above. Even from the rear (hey, it is French). Head on, you'll see design elements from the provocative SR1 concept, while the side is a high-tech portrait of power dedicated to forward motion. A bird's eye view reveals the aggressive stance of the front wheels and the carbon/honeycomb composite monocoque body tapering like a rain drop towards the trim narrowed rear. Hover there while the "suicide" doors open and you'll discover the near-horizontal seating swivel outward to invite any and all passersby to experience the thrust of 250 kilowatts (340 horsepower) from electric motors attached to each axle.
Excuse us while we go take a long cold shower. You go ahead and hit the jump for all the libidinous details in the official press release.
