PGO’s pictures of the Cevennes show the upcoming car in greater detail
5 June 2013

French manufacturer PGO has revealed more details of its upcoming Cevennes Water Snake, a retro-themed roadster inspired by the Porsche 356. 

First previewed at the Shanghai motor show earlier this year, these official images reveal further styling details, such as BMW-like ‘angel eye’ headlights, a new bodykit, 18in wheels and blue carbon paint finish. Other styling elements include LED daytime running lights and metallic orange door handles. 

The seats, steering wheel and dash are trimmed in cream leather with blue stitching. The dashboard features a mix of retro-styled orange-glow dials and small screen displays. 

Under the bonnet is a mid-mounted BMW-sourced 1.6-litre turbo engine which produces 181bhp. PGO quotes a kerbweight of 998kg and a top speed of 140mph.

Prices are yet to be announced.

Is this the up-market alternative to the much-missed Daihatsu Copen?

No, its an alternative to the equally missed Nissan Figaro. Where would the world be if it weren't for the Copen and Figaro?

Even neach and small volume car manufacturers aren't immune to adding LED daytime running lights to their cars.

Do Caterham or Morgan now offer them as an optional extra?

At last, a car that looks more stupid than a Ssangyong Rodius. All it took was someone to weld the front of VW Beetle to the back of a StreetKa convertible.

I've pranged the Water Snake

Nice idea, but with wheels that wide it looks anything but retro. Can't see why anybody would want "orange-glow dials" either.

Come on, this looks like a hoot.
