Paris Motor Show LIVE: Peugeot Onyx Concept

The Onyx Concept developed by Peugeot managed to attract a lot of curious eyes at the 2012 Paris Motor Show where it was presented to the public in a world premiere.

The French based automaker is saying that the Peugeot Onyx Concept is a supercar for the 21st century and the model is coming with handcrafted copper doors, carbon fiber body panels and more. The Onyx has been constructed of a carbon fiber shell. The HYbrid4 technology is recovering the kinetic enery lost during braking and storing it in the lithium-ion batteries, delivering it automatically during acceleration and boosting the power by 80 horsepower more.

The Peugeot Onyx Concept is powered by a mid-mounted 3.7 liter V8 HDi FAP engine, which is producing a total output of 600 HP (441 kW), along with an electric motor generating 80 HP (59 kW). The hybrid powertrain is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission. No performance details have been announced yet. The 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs) supercar concept is 4,65 meters long, 2,20 meters wide and 1,13 meters tall, coming with double-bubble roof with integrated air intakes, LED lighting units and 20-inch alloy wheels. Additional details on the Peugeot Onyx Concept are limited for the moment.
