The RCZ R is a high performance machine and the result of countless hours of development and attention to detail, followed by validation on and off the test track. 

Inspired by the Peugeot RCZ Racing Cup track car, and riding 10mm lower to the ground than the standard RCZ, the result is a performance car with impressive acceleration. 

It can sprint from 0-100kph in 5.9 seconds. 

Maximum torque is 330Nm and it comes in at a low 1,900rpm. Even with high performance, it meets Euro 6 emissions standard, emitting just 145g/km CO2. 

Improved aerodynamics, special suspension settings, wider wheels rims, increased spring stiffness work together to optimise grip for great road holding. 

The Torsen differential makes full use of the high torque available from 1900rpm to offer excellent stability under braking and the ability to hold a tight trajectory inside bends. 

The RCZ R is priced from €52,990 (plus delivery-related charges).
