Peugeot in the UK has announced the availability of a special edition RCZ Asphalt, so named by its special matt Telluric bodywork and a black roof. Only 75 right-hand-drive (RHD) examples will be built, which is bad news for any South Africans who enjoy a superb coupe with great driving dynamics.
The engine remains the same 147kW though, so performance is unaffected. Areas most affected, apart from the mattwork, include the new 19-inch wheels in Solstice black alloy and matching black brake callipers. The inside is decked out in stitched Nappa leather trim, an Alcantara / leather steering wheel and gear stick, with bespoke ‘Asphalt’ sill covers and floor mats.
Prices start at £29 995 (R328 000) for each of the 75 limited edition RCZ Asphalt units. If only the normal RCZ was that cheap in Mzansi!
