Peugeot’s peppy little sports car, the RCZ, is getting a unique ’Red Carbon’ treatment. This special edition will be rather exclusive with only 300 united being constructed, with each one getting a host of features as standard equipment and bespoke features.

Before jumping into what the RCZ Red Carbon has to offer, we have to give props to Peugeot for continuing to tout its sports car. It’s not the sexiest or most powerful in its group, but it does have high amounts of both qualities, earning with it a real following among those chic trendsetters in Europe.

Ok, so the RCZ Red Carbon is, well, pretty special in its own right. It comes decked with plenty of exterior and interior upgrades that should bring out the sportiness of the RCZ even more. Likewise, the inclusion of Peugeot’s ’Vision Pack’ and ’Black Pack’ further highlights the exclusivity of the model, as if any more cosmetic changes could do that on an already impressive looking sports coupe.

The RCZ Red Carbon is available on a variety of powertrains, including Peugeot’s 1.6-liter THP engine that produces 200 horsepower and 202 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to hit 0-62 mph in just 7.6 seconds to go with an impressive top speed of 149 mph.
