Peugeot 407 SW RC: rally flavor without the calories

Peugeot is giving its staple 407 a bit of a rally edge. Unfortunately, this is a more "show" than "go" package, with modifications limited almost entirely to the cosmetic. But it does have a mean look to it, especially for a wagon.

The 407 SW RC starts with the 407 sport-wagon and adds a bit of flair. Included in the RC package are blacked-out 18" five-spoke alloy wheels, a rear spoiler at the trailing edge of the roof, a mesh grille up front and blingin' chrome twin exhaust tips. Inside are black quilted-leather seats with special insignia and the requisite special floormats...sacré bleu!

The 407 SW RC is available only with diesel power, which is just as well since the European market seems to prefer it that way. The choices are a 2.2-liter HDi with 170 horsepower or a 2.7-liter V6 HDi putting out a more rally-worthy 204 hp.

The 407 SW range costs starts at €22,600 and tops out at €41,650. Hard to say where the RC version falls in that range, but the two models can be had for €33,500 for the 2.2 and €37,900 for the V6.
