Peugeot looks like it's ratcheting the good-old British-French rivalry up a notch by bringing its Onyx diesel-hybrid concept car at England's Goodwood Festival of Speed this July, according to Hybrid Cars.

The French automaker will use the festival to road-test the futuristic-looking vehicle, whose touches include door "wings," a carbon-fiber shell and a partially copper exterior that will change colors as it oxidizes.

Peugeot first showed off the Onyx at the Paris Motor Show last September. The 2,400-pound car has a 3.7-liter, V8 diesel engine that delivers 600 horsepower paired with an electric motor that has another 80 horsepower, making this concept car, well, tres rapide.

      Who said Peugeot doesn't want to shake off it's boring and staid image ! What a sensational concept car ! Let's hope these exciting designs and technology flows through to the rest of Peugeot's product range.

      By far the coolest concept car I've seen in years. Well done Peugeot!

      Is the copper still that shiny? I heard they were going to let it patina naturally.

      It looks a *lot* like their 1984 Quasar concept.

        That car is so unbelievably cool. I want to own a car with an exposed engine someday. 600 HP and straight-pipes off the turbos I bet that mofo was LOUD!
