Peugeot has always had a penchant for showcasing radical concepts at the Paris Motor Show. After all, since this is the Paris Motor Show, it's a matter of pride for the French.
Their previous Paris unveilings include the radical three-wheeled EX1 Concept and the 2009 RC Concept, not to forget the bonkers three-wheeled 20Cup trike. They haven't let us down this year either - here's the Peugeot Onyx Concept, a sharp-looking, low-slung supercar from the land of croissants.
Peugeot has boldly used new materials in places one wouldn't normally expect them to be used, like the doors and wings that are made out of pure copper sheets, which will gain a patina over time. The rest of the lightweight, aerodynamically efficient carbon-fibre body houses a 3.7-litre hybrid V8 that produces 600 plus horsepower and can provide an additional 80 horses on tap, just like an F1 KERS system. C'est magnifique!
