Powerful Production Car
The new RCZ R coupe is the most powerful production car ever made by Peugeot – producing an impressive 199kW* - and is the latest addition to our stunning Coupes & Cabriolets range.
An exciting balance of power and precision, it still delivers that distinctive RCZ style, but with a lot more oomph.
Get ready for the RCZ R. The fastest production car Peugeot has ever built and combines the high level performance of a sports coupé with exceptional efficiency. RCZ R was developed by Peugeot Sport to be race track capable but it is equally accomplished and just as enjoyable to drive on the road.
Specifically designed to combine elegance and performance, every aspect of the RCZ R asserts its distinct personality. It features a lowered profile and is filled with unique accents that mark it as something special – like 19" 'R' branded alloy wheels, racing sports bucket seating with ‘R’ branded leather / alcantara, fixed rear spoiler and a twin sports exhaust. It all adds to its alluring race car appeal.
The new RCZ R builds on the RCZ's award winning handling, with increased power, torque and acceleration. Wider front tracks, a lower ride height and enhanced suspension settings help it grip the road. A fixed rear spoiler provides stability at high speeds.
The new RCZ R’s 1.6 THP turbocharged petrol engine generates 199kW, propelling the car from 0-100km/h in just 5.9 seconds. That power comes from engineering innovations like Formula One grade forged aluminium pistons and an uprated clutch.Euro 6 emission standard compliant, it achieves 6.3l/100km combined consumption and CO2 emissions of just 145g/km, so all that performance won’t cost the earth.
The RCZ R features many Peugeot Sport-specific attributes, including extra large red calipers on the front wheels.
Its sporty, high-tech, 19-inch matt black/sparkling two-tone alloy wheels are engraved with a striking R monogram, also found on the front and rear ends of the car, that make a distinctively bold statement.
The aluminium door sills have an R monogram and Peugeot Sport signature, and there is also an R badge fixed to the centre console.
At Peugeot, we've been using motorsport as a development platform for our cars for 120 years. In fact, Peugeot won the world’s first motorsport event, a reliability trial from Paris to Rouen in 1894.
We followed with another victory a year later in the world’s first speed race from Paris-Bordeaux-Paris. For 120 years, we have continued to demonstrate our motorsport success, winning across multiple disciplines and events.

Directional bi-Xenon headlights give off a brighter, whiter light twice the intensity of a standard halogen globe. Producing a much wider beam, they use less power and last longer, reduce eye fatigue and pick out colours more clearly.
The spray from wet, muddy roads can lead to a build up of grime on your headlights. The RCZ R's headlight washers will keep them clean so the road ahead is always brilliantly lit at night.
The RCZ R has safety and security in its core. Its dynamic stability control system includes Intelligent Traction Control - a hi-tech anti-skid system, as well as Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Emergency Brake Assist.
The RCZ R comes with the latest-generation Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which is able to detect the first signs of a sideways skid and helps reduce oversteer. It keeps the car on course by reducing engine power and braking individual wheels.
The new RCZ R has front airbags that can adapt their pressure to the intensity of any impact for increased safety, as well as side airbags built into the seats - a must for any safety-conscious coupé.
The Peugeot RCZ R includes the best in braking safety technology - from ESP with its traction control system which continuously compares stability information to detect understeer or oversteer. If you need to stop in a hurry, ABS and Emergency Brake Assist increase the effectiveness of braking, while Electronic Brake Force Distribution works wheel by wheel to make braking into corners safer.
Fitted with a powerful new engine that's one of the best in its class. It's even Euro 6.1 emission-compliant.

Everything Peugeot Sport has learned has been injected into the development of the RCZ R - the ultimate balance between sports car performance and driveability for every day use.
At 199kW the new RCZ R is the most powerful production car Peugeot has ever created, enabling the 1.6 turbo engine to propel the RCZ R from 0-100km/h in just 5.9 seconds. But it still has an eye on the environment and produces only 145g/km of CO2 with a combined fuel consumption of 6.3l/100km. So the joy of being on the road doesn’t have to cost the earth or your wallet.
The Peugeot Sport engineers have gone over every detail of the car to increase power and performance whilst maintaining that unique RCZ style. The engineering tweaks include an uprated clutch and Formula One grade forged aluminium pistons. The con-rods have been modified to withstand use at high engine speeds. Patended and presented in 2011 by MAHLE, this is a world-first use in production.
The RCZ R is equipped with a Torsen® limited slip differential, which provides excellent braking and cornering stability, particularly when dealing with tight turns. The aerodynamic lines, lower center of gravity and enhanced suspension settings also contribute to its remarkable road-holding ability. The wheels have a brand-new spec of dampers, tighter springs and a stiffer anti-roll bar, giving this playful sports car exceptional handling.
