Its use of a single rear wheel, was an unexpected and a bold statement, to help maintain the suspense. Styled by the Peugeot Style Centre, the 207 RCup refl ects with even greater intensity the sporty nature and style of the production 207 - bold, elegant lines, well proportioned and balanced; it portrays the effi ciency of the design and ensures driving enjoyment on a day-to-day basis.

With a central red stripe running the length of the body, guiding the eye to the fl owing lines of the pure white body, the sides emphasised by a red stylised lion's head motif, all strengthen the intensity of the overall shape of the vehicle. The more sporty shape of the front and rear wings of the 207 RCup, a wider front and rear track than the original 207 and unusually large wheel arches, create a strong aerodynamic design.

Proudly exhibiting the sporty credentials of the 207 and taking them to a new level, the 207 RCup concept car appears to be "glued to the road" with its lower ground clearance reduced to ten centimetres. It creates an impression that it is ready to take any challenge, with its four 18" wheels featuring multiple magnesium spokes and fi tted with 235/40R18 tyres. Its two dual rear exhaust pipes, the deep front air dam containing air extraction ducts in front of the front wheels and the rear roof spoiler designed to increase down force, affirm without doubt, the character of the vehicle. On the 207 RCup, the generous glazed surface area of the 207 is heavily tinted accentuating the sporty exterior styling.

On opening the door, all becomes clear: the 207 RCup follows the design requirements of the Rally Super 2000 category with its single compartment chassis and its tubular rollover cage protecting the vital space for the driver and the co-driver, who sit in competition bucket seats securely retained by four-point harnesses. The interior of the 207 RCup retains the same "wave-style" fascia panel and the motorcycle dials of the instrument panel found on the original 207. The central section and centre console are coloured red, echoing the exterior decoration, and guiding the expert eye of its driver and co-driver to the essential "racing" instrumentation.

On this special version, the rally style design includes, in particular, a light weight steering wheel, whose rim is covered with suede, a large hydraulic handbrake lever and, adjacent to the right-hand side of the steering wheel, a small lever similar to that of the sequential 6-speed gearbox, which controls the four-wheel drive transmission system.
