Peugeot announces an ultimate-experience prize with two tickets for the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the chance to be the passenger in the Onyx Concept Car which has 600bhp at its disposal. This is the first public dynamic demonstration of Onyx at this automotive extravaganza, now in its 20th anniversary year.
The prize ride experience is open to anyone over 18-years for Saturday, 13th July. Those wishing to participate in this free competition need to simply visit http://www.peugeot.co.uk/goodwood-onyx-competition/ to leave their contact details. The draw will take place on the 1st July, allowing time for arrangements to be made. Terms and conditions do apply, but all details can be viewed on the website.
With most concept cars usually being modelled for static appreciation, the Peugeot Onyx breaks the traditional mould with innovative use of materials in its construction and performance.
Within the carbon fibre shell sits a mid-mounted 3.7-litre V8 HDi FAP diesel-electric hybrid power unit developed with the expertise of Peugeot Sport and the experience acquired from racetracks the world over. NACA ducts in the double-bubble roofline supply the intake for the diesel V8 to transmit 600bhp to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox.
HYbrid4 technology recovers kinetic energy stored in lithium-ion batteries, to be redeployed to enhance acceleration, boosting the power by 80bhp, to give the concept less than 2kg per horsepower.
