Competition-winning design will star in computer game
15 February 2007

Never mind the 207 CC, Peugeot. We want one of these. Sadly, however, this concept – called the Flux - will never make it into reality.

It will, however, make it into virtual reality –the Flux is the winner of Peugeot's fourth online design competition, and part of the prize is that it will star in a future game for the XBox 360 console.

The Flux is the creation of Mihai Panaitescu, a 20-year-old Romanian design student studying in Turin.

Panaitescu sees it as a car that is "very much at home in an urban environment. Its compact size makes it easy to use. Its classic design, combined with a sporty, modern feel, blends in perfectly with the urban landscape."

Clearly he's never been to the UK. As well as getting to see his car on the small screen, Panaitescu gets a cheque for €6000 – about £4000.

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
