Gallery: A day with the crazy Peugeot Onyx

3 May, 2013 | by topgear

Here at TopGear, we like to think of ourselves as being grounded in reality. Well… sort of. Reality isn’t technically a R13m* Bugatti Veyron, or even something cheaper, like, say, a pocket-change R2.5m* McLaren 12C. But this is at least all stuff you can experience, stuff you can drive. That’s what gets us going.

And it’s why we can sometimes be a bit wary of concept cars: they might look real enough, but mostly they’re just styling bucks with flight-of-fancy innards, an off-roader powered by rainwater or a supercar fuelled by horse manure… that sort of thing. But the Peugeot Onyx is not like other concept cars.

Because this is a concept car, and then some, marrying all those concept-car futuristic looks and materials with a trick up its sleeve: a real-life engine. One that actually works. More than that, it is one capable of propelling the Onyx to 160kph and beyond…
