As unlikely a rivalry as it might seem, Peugeot has set its sights on Audi. The French automaker may not be going after Audi at Le Mans anymore these days, but its RCZ sports coupe is still eagerly pursuing the Audi TT with the same vigor it has shown since launching two years ago. To take the fight home to Audi's home territory, Peugeot has launched a special-edition RCZ available exclusively in Germany.

Called the Brownstone edition, the special RCZ gets a metallic brown paint job with silver racing stripe, black trim and 19-inch burnished alloys. Inside, the Brownstone is also all brown, with Cohiba leather and Alcantara trim. The special edition also bundles the Sport, Comfort and Xenon packages together into one, and is powered by a 1.6-liter 156-horsepower turbo four. Only 150 examples will be made available for German buyers for €32,650 – equivalent to about $42k at today's exchange rates.

      Another example of a car that looks better in person. Love seeing these on the streets of Europe. Would be great to see them here. Alas, I don't think that we will be seeing anything new from France on American roads in the near future.

        I saw one in southeast michigan with New Jersey manufacturers plates on it. No idea what it was doing here, it didn't have badges or anything on it.

          Peugeot still has North American operations in New Jersey. It's common to see Pugs on the roads there brought over for evaluation on our roads, although I don't know what Jersey roads can tell them about a car that Europe's roads can't.

      Its kind of like a TT - mini coupe with SLK headlights and Lexus fog lights and RX-8 wheel arches. Not bad looking but not cohesive either.

      I think the RCZ is a great looking sportscar. I wish I could see one on the street. Not crazy about stripes on any car, but the shape of this Pug is very effective and sleek.
