Peugeot RCZ Asphalt Edition – Click above for high-res image gallery

We weren't looking for more reasons to pine after the Peugeot RCZ. Initially categorized as a French knock-off of the Audi TT, it seems the slinky coupe from French auto giant PSA has come into its own. But now we've got another reason to want one, and its name is the Asphalt edition.

The blacked-out special features a unique Noir Telluric exterior shade with black 19-inch alloys and a black leather interior to match. The 200-horsepower 1.6-liter turbo four co-developed with BMW does the pulling duties overseas, while we're stuck over here wishing we could get our hands on one.

      I thought the Chinese and Hyundai did the only major ripping off, wow, was I wrong. Cough, TT, cough, cough...

      I saw one of these on woodword during the cruise and a couple of months later. It's been years since I've seen a Peugeot in the USA, but I must say it looked good. Sorta looked like the freak offspring of an Audi TT and R8 had a sordid affair with a Peugeot.

      Same engine as the Cooper S

      looks like a mazda 6 + audi TT

        Nostalgic redo of a Karmann Ghia, by my thinking.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ Mr. Ed, yes, resembles Ghia, but that is a GOOD thing; I just got back from Italy, saw it there, and the car is MUCH more attractive in person, inside and out, than any pictures can show. MUCH better looking than the TT.

      is it just me or it looks like the Audi TT in the profile, my wife would love it
        • 4 Years Ago
        Definitely a TT with a little Porche in it too. Maybe this won't be such a chick car like the Audi is. I love Audis, just not the TT.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I see a little of the TT in it.....

      I like what they did here /thumb up
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree with you. The resemblance is obvious. Yet the RCZ is more fluid, its lines less rigid than the TT's. More feline, if I do say so myself.

      Sure, it looks great.
      But, this color is going to be hard to see on the road.

      Plucky and now a bit sinister, very nice

      Give me one good reason why this is better than a TT RS (other than it's probably cheaper)
        • 4 Years Ago
        yep, it is cheaper - by about a half. thats one point. this starts at 25000 Euro while the TT RS starts at 45000 Euro here. I really must wonder how you could compare those. they don't even compete. TT yes, but TT RS? c'mon...

      Le TT ?

      Where is the top coat? I don't get this primer paint look


      • 4 Years Ago
      I must say that I'm quite ok with not getting the RCZ here in the states. I've always found Peugeot's styling to be a bit off-putting, and this is no different.
        • 4 Years Ago
        that's pretty pure comunism, deciding what other people like or not.
