Peugeot SR1 concept previews future French models |

Besides releasing a new logo, French company Peugeot, part of the PSA alliance, together with Citroen, has also released the stunning SR1 concept car, which previews the design line of future French models.

The new car boasts a folding soft top, and is a three-seater coupe, with two sport seats in the front and one in the back. The design is quite bold, and even though some people might say it resembles the Aston Martin Vantage, it looks pretty good.

The interior is quite futuristic, boasting multiple displays, including a speedometer which changes sizes depending on how hard you accelerate the car. The three passengers will also find carbon fiber panels, which in some places are hidden, and in other are in plain sight, as well as a three-wood sculpted cockpit.

The task of moving the SR1 concept will be taken care of by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, which will power the front wheels with 240 HP, and an 80 HP electric motor, which drives the rear wheels. This special set-up allows the SR1 to deliver GT performance with just 119 g/km of CO2 and, more importantly, an average of 48 mpg (US) or 4.9 liters/100 km.
