We’ve been on the lookout for any and all evidence of the Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe being more than just a pipe dream and while we’ve seen some spy photos of the much-anticipated car, Peugeot hasn’t released the official photos of the car.

That is, of course, until now.

We’ve finally laid our eyes on Peugeot’s new sports car after two years when we first saw its concept version at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. Despite the fact that the car is barely visible from these promotional photos, the car didn’t seem to veer away from its original concept design, particularly the double-bubble rear windshield and roof panel.

The RCZ, which will be officially unveiled by the French automakers at the Frankfurt Motor Show, is more than likely to be outfitted with a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that comes in a number of different variants, including one that comes with a 218hp engine.

Continued after the jump.

Fans of Peugeot will also notice that the RCZ is also the company’s first vehicle that has dropped the use of the ‘zero’ and ‘double-zero’ numbering system that we’ve all come to associate with the French carmaker.

While we count down the days until the doors of the Frankfurt Motor Show finally opens, we’ve got to take comfort knowing that any and all ‘official’ photos of Peugot’s new car has shown us glimpses of what this car will look like out on the streets.

And while these photos may not have shown the car’s full body work, it’s beginning to look like the Peugeot RCZ is going to be a full-blown eye-catcher down the road.

I forgot to add, the 308 is internationally renowned to be ugly, yet this is called beautiful?

The front end is definitely a 308. So could it just be a re-bodied and re-badged 308CC?
