In celebration of the first show appearance of its new 1007 citycar (right), Peugeot will exhibit this bespoilered concept - the 1007 RC. The compact sports hatch draws on the French manufacturer's rich native hot hatch tradition - RC is the French equivalent of GTi - and shares all of the typical hot hatch cues.

Luxuriously trimmed in leather and alcantara, and with an Onyx Black finish, the one-off 1007 RC is powered by a bespoke 140bhp 1.6-litre engine. Peugeot has also added a rear spoiler and 18in alloys, as well as flourishes of aluminium inside and out.
