They gave us people like coco chanel, catherine deneuve & the truely beautiful brigitte bardot all of who had extra character fashion than david beckham, brad pitt, george clooney and, despite the fact that this is hard to accept as true with, myself put together. It has constantly been the same with their style homes too! They’ve christian dior, christian louboutin, christian lacroix and jean-paul gaultier at the same time as the relaxation of the sector (except for italy that’s the simplest usa which could compete with the french here) ought to make do with names like ralph lauren, calvin klein, next or primark. Despite the fact that i pay attention that primark are the brand new prada… But for the beyond few years the french automobile manufacturers were letting the facet down in the fashion branch with motors just like the renualt aventime and vel sartis, peugeot 1007, 3008, 4007, 5008 and any citroen you can think about after the sm. Till these days, peugeot had managed it just as soon as with the splendidly stylish 406 coupe. Regrettably that was styled by means of pininfarina who’re italian so consequently would not be counted. At this point i would really like to go lower back to the goodwood competition of velocity 2010.
For those who are unaware of this wonderful event held every summer season, it is basically a automobile porn show for petrolheads! Certainly every vehicle producer below the sun is represented in a single shape or some other and the cars on show variety from bugatti veyrons to formula 1 automobiles, all of which run up the goodwood hill infront of one hundred fifty,000 over three days at the start of july. I’ve been before and truly loved it however 2010 changed into plenty greater special for me, i used to be no longer most effective using in this unique event however nerve-rackingly, i was to offer a pals 1 of 15, £1. 5 million lamborghini reventon roadster a right thrashing for the group! Now i recognize that little paragraph was a tad off subject matter and i’ll admit that there was a small quantity of ‘oi look what i did’ approximately it too however i am coming to my factor so undergo with me! I woke up at 8am on the saturday morning feeling clean as a daisy that jolion can only suggest one of 2 matters, 1) i used to be absolutely sober and hadn’t inebriated anywhere near the quantity of alcohol i idea i had, or 2) i was nevertheless as a substitute merry from the as a substitute exuberant nights partying until 4am with the ginetta boys and ladies within the winnebago next door to ours. I have a feeling it changed into alternative 2 because after i had got dressed, legged it to the supercar paddock because we were running late, exposed the auto, drove the auto all of about 50 yards handiest to be informed we needed to opposite park down hill as they were going for walks 45 mins in the back of etc… The hangover sincerely started to creep in and and not using a water and no food i commenced to peer things… Or at the least i concept i was because beforehand of the veyron, zonda and 599 gto became a vehicle with a peugeot badge!! Jesus what the hell did rick parfitt jnr put in my drink to make me see things like that?? (exceptional little bit of z-list name dropping for you there)
the thing was, i wasn’t seeing things due to the fact 4 cars up was the new peugeot styled rcz in all it’s bronze colored glory, and i have to mention that in terms of fashion it placed a hell of a whole lot of different cars in that convoy to shame as it’s miles truly lovely. So i made a mental observe to myself to speak to peugeot and arrange for a demonstrator asap. That demo arrived in january (huge ready list apparently) within the form of a 2. 0hdi gt with 163 bhp. My first impressions had been wow… Properly done peugeot! This car is what i might describe as unconventionally stunning, from the sweeping facet profile to the bubble roof and rear window, peugeot have controlled what i can only describe as a visual masterpiece for this form of cash. Adequate, the front cease is unfortunately normal peugeot however it’s very clean to forgive it that! Positioned the rcz in a vehicle park next to its rivals and it makes the tt appearance stupid and the scirocco appearance dated and uninteresting (which is a few going because i love the scirocco). Inner, you have got a completely properly laid out cabin with lots of area (except for the rear seats which might be certainly handiest there for comedy cost). The force is excellent too, although i can say that the diesel engine felt like it may use an extra 25-30bhp however it does take care of well through the corners and the frame roll is kept to a minimum, even if pushed and the tyres are starting to inform you sufficient is enough. The reality that you automobile flip the passenger airbag off meant that my 14 month vintage son become capable of sit down in the the front (right process simply as he’d in no way have match inside the back not to mention his car seat) which both he and that i sincerely loved and suppose that it ought to be a trendy characteristic on all motors. I without a doubt like this vehicle even to the factor where i requested the md if i could have one as a corporation car. Sadly we’ve a minimal five door car coverage that is sincerely disappointing however just means that i can have to attempt to tap up peugeot for a 6 month demo programme.
