The ‘World Series by Renault’ Clio Renault Sport Edition small hatchback was officially presented to the public last weekend at the famous Magny-Cours track.
The new Bugatti EB Veyron 16.4 Pur Sang is an extremely exclusive edition of the fastest street-legal car in the world.
Peugeot will add another member to its growing 207 family at the upcoming 2007 IAA motor show in Frankfurt. While the new station wagon doesn’t look as handsome as the hatchback, I must admit that the 2008 Peugeot 207 SW RC is a more practical vehicle if the idea of bringing home a month’s supply of groceries at an average speed of 180 kilometers per hour fits into your understanding of the practical vehicle, that’s it.
The upcoming diesel-powered 2010 Peugeot 308 Hybrid HDi hatchback will feature an outstanding fuel economy of 83 mpg (just 2.83 l/100km) on the combined cycle and will emit only 90g/km of CO2. For comparison’s sake, the same Peugeot 308 HDi that lacks an auxiliary electric motor consumes whole 6.8 liters of diesel fuel per 100 kilometers (34.5 mpg) combined and exhales around 120 grams of CO2 for every kilometer it travels.
Peugeot is readying to introduce its well-known Peugeot 307 BioFlex to the French, Dutch and Swedish markets. All three countries are known for their sky-high fuel prices and extreme care for the environment, so selling the flex-fuel-capable vehicles will probably not be a problem for the French car manufacturer.
2008 Peugeot 308 will be officially presented only in September during the 2007 IAA motor show in Frankfurt, Germany. Designed to stand its ground against such fierce competitors as the new Ford Focus, Mazda3 and, of course, the German Volkswagen Golf, until now, the new compact hatchback was the most secret weapon of the French car maker.
Based on the latest compact hatchback model, the new Peugeot 207 Van looks like an almost ideal solution for a one-person business. I mean, you don’t need to buy a Ford Transit or a Peugeot Boxer to deliver a box of pizza or a couple of flowers to a customer living two blocks away from your tiny office, right?
Citroen has unveiled its new flex-fuel Citroen C4 BioTech family hatchback during the European International Agricultural Show. With bio-fuel hysteria recently hitting the all-time high, the new C4 FFV will not only make our planet a little bit greener, but will also get the French car manufacturer a lot of (basically) free publicity.
The French L’Equipe sports daily magazine has offered its readers a special edition version of the 2007 Renault Megane family of compact hatchbacks. Available for all versions of the car (including the three-door and five-door models, that is) the Megane L’Equipe edition is not limited to just a set of fancy decals. Au contraire, the car will offer a comprehensive set of equipment, which is usually available only as pricey options.
It seems that Renault just can’t stop bombarding us with special edition versions of its popular models. The reason for this is that it is easier (and more cost-effective) for the car maker to simply pre-build a given number of vehicles stuffed with a given number of optional equipment.
