Following last year’s Peugeot RCZ Asphalt, the company has now opened its ordering books for the 2011 RCZ Asphalt LE. What’s the difference? This new model is limited to just 75 right-hand-drive units for the UK as opposed to the 500 units offered last year. Each model will be priced at £29,995 - or around $48,000 at the current exchange rates.
The new Asphalt LE edition will be distinguished by a special matte Telluric - that’s fancy for gray - body and can be ordered only with the top-of-the-range GT trim version. The Asphalt package also includes a black roof, "Asphalt’ badging, and 19" Solstice black alloy wheels complimented by matching black brake calipers. For the interior, the package adds bespoke "Asphalt" branded and stitched Nappa leather trim, an Alcantara / leather steering wheel and gear stick, and bespoke "Asphalt" sill covers and floor mats. The list of standard equipment includes front and rear parking aids, auto lighting (with approach and follow me home modes), Peugeot Connect Media Navigation, and a top-of-the-range JBL sound system.
The RCZ Asphalt LE will be powered by the standard 1.6-liter THP petrol engine producing 200 HP and 188 lb-ft of torque. This power is good for a 0-60 mph sprint time of 7.6 seconds.
UPDATE 08/29/11: Peugeot has announced that in addition to the new HX1 Concept, their booth at the Frankfurt Motor Show will also carry the RCZ Asphalt Limited Edition. The special edition RCZ was introduced back in July, but will only make its public debut in Frankfurt in the coming weeks. Be on the look out for the car because, according to Peugeot, only 75 models will be released.
Peugeot UK is thinking that if they attach a name that has the word "sport" in it, that it would change the look of their little hatchback. We’re not sure if they succeeded, but we give them an A for effort. Their project is the special edition 207 Sportium and it will be offered with a choice of either a VTi 95 Euro 5 petrol engine or Peugeot’s new HDi 92 Euro 5 diesel engine, plus a number of little treats to sport up the vehicle.
The 207 Sportium will be offered with power steering, reach and rake adjustable steering, six airbags, remote control central locking with deadlocks, and electric front windows – “one touch” for the driver. As far as acronyms go, the 207 will come with a radio/ CD player, ABS, EBFD, and EBA. Exterior sporty features will include front fog lights, chrome effect finish to the front grille, colour-coded body side mouldings (including rear bumper), Sportium interior pack, and dark tinted rear window / rear side glass. Finishing off the exterior look is a set of alloy wheels - 15" on petrol models and 16" on HDi models.
Prices for the new 207 Sportium edition start at £12,595. Sales will begin in November.

Peugeot is rolling out its second special edition for the 2010MY with the RCZ Asphalt based on their latest RCZ sports car. Following the RCZ Limited Edition, the RCZ Asphalt gets almost double the number of units as the previous model with 500 being available for purchase.
The new RCZ Asphalt will be distinguished by a dark gray/black matte exterior paint finish, new 19" black and silver alloys for the exterior, and a pair of custom made sport seats covered in black leather for the interior. And just in case owners forget the name of their vehicle, there will be plenty of "Asphalt" logos on both the interior and the exterior.
Unfortunately, this special edition does not offer any engine updates. Under the hood the customer will still find the 1.6 liter THP engine that develops a total of 200 HP. Other engine options may be available, but Peugeot is keeping mum on those details.
Peugeot has also yet to announce prices for the new special edition, but if we are using the RCZ Limited Edition as a guide then the Asphalt should be around 35,500 euros.
