Peugeot is working on a replacement for the lackluster 607, the transportation of choice for French businessmen and park-anywhere foreign diplomats. Given the enthusiastic attention garnered by the show-stopping 908RC concept car shown at this year's Paris show, insiders expect the new range-topping French sedan to draw on the concept's aggressive lines, possibly joining the burgeoning league of upcoming four-door coupes along the lines of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide.
Powering the car will be an array of engines, including a revised version of PSA's 2.7-liter six-cylinder HDi "clean diesel", plus an anticipated new gasoline V6 and maybe, if Francophile motorists are lucky, a new V8 as well. Just don't hold your breath for the impressive HDi V12 from the show car.
