Peugeot Onyx is one of the concepts I’ve missed over the past year or so, but the big deal here is that it actually got made into a real supercar that was tested by Top Gear. The Onyx came to life at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, originally with 1160 nm of torque available from the gasoline engine and 280 nm of torque from the electric motor.
This model is a bit more squared than expected and its doors and wings are made of polished copper for some reason. The copper pieces were left unprotected so a natural tarnishing would cover them for a nifty effect. The rest of the body panels are made of carbon fiber and upfront we’ve got a flat and vertical grille.
That one includes 4 horizontal louvers and the famous lion logo. Full LED headlights are also included and up top there’s a double hump roof, with a bunch of air intakes to get air to the engine. By the way, the roof is made of a special shatter resistant glass, or better said plexiglas. At the back there’s another handful of LEDs, creating some special models.
We see no sign of an exhaust here, but there are half a dozen holes near the bottom of the rear, so maybe that’s the exhaust. The Peugeot Onyx super weighs 1100 kg, measures 4.65 mm in length and it’s 1.13 m high.
