Peugeot Design Center had to deal with both design and technical matters. For example, the roof had to be of a light color not to accumulate too much heat in the cabin and the "carbon" parts, free of paint, contribute to an optimal weight distribution on the car.

While the car looks amazing, and the specs of the engine make me drool, I will still be rooting for the Audi R10 come race day...

Audi ist am besten!
