First image of the production version of the Peugeot RCZ R

Peugeot introduced at last year's Paris Motor Show the Peugeot RCZ R Concept, and soon became one of the most anticipated cars of this year. Luckily, we will not have to wait much longer because Peugeot is putting the finishing touches on this little lion, which will be officially unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that will begin on July 12.

While it doesn't have the same color scheme of the concept, everything else seems to be the same. It has the same wheels, larger rear spoiler and dual exhaust pipes.

Another good news is that it will use the same engine that the concept had. It was a turbocharged 1.6-liter THP petrol engine with 260PS (257bhp or 191kW) connected to a manual sex-speed gearbox.

To help maintain control on this car, Peugeot has fitted it with a Torsen differential, bigger brakes and lowered the suspension. Can't wait to see it fight the Audi TTS.
