Paris Motor Show LIVE: Peugeot Exalt Concept image

Peugeot has brought its Exalt Concept to the Old Continent, where it was unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, in a premiere.

After being officially introduced at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, earlier this year, the Peugeot Exalt Concept is entering our news once again, this time with the company bringing it to the 2014th edition of the Paris Motor Show too, which is taking place as we speak. The one-off vehicle is paying homage to the 20s and 30s French cars with its exposed body style and the Shark Skin covered parts, which is basically a textile capable of improving the aerodynamic performance and of reducing fuel consumption.

The Peugeot Exalt Concept stands at 4.7 meters in length and at 1.31 meters in height, weighing in at 1,700 kg. The vehicle has a spacious cabin with two folding touch screen displays, with a digital instrument cluster, bucket seats, carbon fiber and ebony wood trim and so on. As far as the engine goes, the same 1.6 liter THP four-cylinder gasoline burner, used on the RCZ R, has been used with this concept car. The unit is capable of generating 270 HP (201 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque, being backed up by an electric motor with 50 kW, mounted on the rear axle. The total output is 340 HP (253 kW) and it is sent to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission.
