Peugeot has recently announced its plans to introduce the Onyx Concept during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
If you thought that the Peugeot Onyx Concept was dead, think again, because the French based automaker will pull the wraps off its body, once more, during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The announcement has been recently made by the company. The model in question will take a center stage while the famous Goodwood Hill Climb should be eclipsed by the brand new Peugeot 208 GTI.
As a quick reminder, the Peugeot Onyx Concept is coming with 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. The model is 4.65 meters long, 2.20 meters wide and 1.13 meters tall, weighing just 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs). The Peugeot Onyx Concept is riding on a carbon fiber monocoque and it’s sitting on a fresh set of 20-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in Michelin tires.
