Peugeot will show a concept coupé tomorrow ahead of an official appearance at next month's Paris motor show, and it has been previewed in a series of images and clips released by the brand.

No details have been given about the car’s powertrain, but some degree of electrification is expected, given the switch to electric mobility across the industry and the concept’s forward-looking themes.

 

 

 

Styling, however, is decidedly retro in its execution, with lines and the car's rear end drawing heavily from the 504 coupé of the late 1960s. Peugeot boss Jean-Philippe Imparato said: “When I saw it for real, it made me feel like a child.”

Imparato has previously hinted to Autocar that the car will preview a potential range-topping model, meaning that, unlike other concepts produced by the brand, the coupé could make production.

A more comprehensive image of the car was tweeted from Peugeot’s main Twitter account but has been since taken down. 

Even the car’s name is under wraps, as is the majority of its styling, but the image clearly shows the coupé's shape, with wide wheel arches and a two-door bodystyle, as well as details taken from the Instinct shooting brake concept such as the rear lights. 

No interior details have been disclosed, but the car could have a cabin based around Peugeot’s i-Cockpit digital dashboard, albeit a next-generation system. A four-seat layout is expected, akin to the RCZ, which halted production in 2015.

Its stunning looking but so

Its stunning looking but so too is the RCZ and that failed to get people out of their suvs, why did they stop RCZ production? It wasn't that old, I don't hold much hope of this being built.

To me the RCZ never felt

To me the RCZ never felt right as a Peugeot, whereas historically their "halo" cars have tended to be elegant coupes rather than aggressive sports cars
