The RCZ R is the culmination of an evolutionary product journey that started with the original RCZ Concept that quickly made it into production, then into the three-times class-winning Nürburgring race car that inspired the road-going RCZ R. The RCZ R Concept previewed the evolution at the Paris and Geneva Motor Shows – shown with a matt black and copper livery that heralds the spiritual stance of a road-going RCZ R.

The road-going RCZ R utilises a more powerful 1.6-litre THP engine with 260bhp, making it the most powerful production model in Peugeot’s history.  Its efficiency will be a benchmark with power/capacity among the highest in the world for production vehicles at over 160bhp/litre with CO2 emissions targeted at just 155g/km.

Two red RCZ Rs will be displayed for the first time in public: on the Peugeot stand and shown performing dynamically during the Festival of Speed weekend, driven by the UK Peugeot 208 GTi Ambassador, Bradley Philpot – a finalist in the recent Nürburgring 24-hour race that saw three Peugeot 208 GTi cars win their SP2T class. 

The reveal of the RCZ R is timely ahead of its launch at the end of the year.  While the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, it is also the case that as the gates to the Festival open on 12th July, it is the very same date 100 years ago that Peugeot demonstrated its performance prowess by winning the French Grand Prix, coming first and second.
