They gave us people like coco chanel, catherine deneuve & the sincerely beautiful brigitte bardot all of who had more man or woman style than david beckham, brad pitt, george clooney and, despite the fact that that is hard to agree with, myself prepare. It has usually been the identical with their fashion houses too! They’ve christian dior, christian louboutin, christian lacroix and jean-paul gaultier even as the relaxation of the sector (with the exception of italy that is the only usa that can compete with the french right here) should make do with names like ralph lauren, calvin klein, next or primark. Although i pay attention that primark are the brand new prada… However for the past few years the french car manufacturers have been letting the facet down in the fashion department with vehicles like the renualt aventime and vel sartis, peugeot 1007, 3008, 4007, 5008 and any citroen you could consider after the sm. Until these days, peugeot had controlled it just once with the wonderfully fashionable 406 coupe. Sadly that was styled by using pininfarina who are italian so therefore would not matter. At this point i would like to head returned to the goodwood festival of velocity 2010.
For folks who are unaware of this glorious occasion held every summer season, it is basically a car porn display for petrolheads! Without a doubt every vehicle manufacturer below the solar is represented in one form or any other and the motors on display variety from bugatti veyrons to system 1 cars, all of which run up the goodwood hill infront of a hundred and fifty,000 over 3 days at the beginning of july. I have been earlier than and honestly loved it however 2010 became much more unique for me, i used to be not most effective driving on this unique event but nerve-rackingly, i was to offer a friends 1 of 15, £1. jolion 5 million lamborghini reventon roadster a proper thrashing for the gang! Now i know that little paragraph changed into a tad off topic and i’ll admit that there has been a small amount of ‘oi appearance what i did’ approximately it too however i’m coming to my point so undergo with me! I awoke at 8am on the saturday morning feeling clean as a daisy that may most effective suggest one in all 2 matters, 1) i was absolutely sober and hadn’t drunk everywhere near the amount of alcohol i notion i had, or 2) i was nonetheless as a substitute merry from the alternatively exuberant nights partying till 4am with the ginetta boys and girls within the winnebago round the corner to ours.
I’ve a feeling it become alternative 2 because once i had were given dressed, legged it to the supercar paddock due to the fact we had been strolling past due, exposed the automobile, drove the automobile all of about 50 yards most effective to be advised we needed to opposite park down hill as they have been going for walks forty five minutes in the back of and so forth… The hangover in reality started to creep in and without a water and no food i started out to peer things… Or at least i concept i used to be due to the fact beforehand of the veyron, zonda and 599 gto became a car with a peugeot badge!! Jesus what the hell did rick parfitt jnr installed my drink to make me see things like that?? (high-quality little bit of z-listing call dropping for you there)
the component became, i wasn’t seeing things because four motors up changed into the new peugeot styled rcz in all it is bronze coloured glory, and i’ve to say that during phrases of favor it put a hell of a lot of different automobiles in that convoy to disgrace as it’s miles truely beautiful. So i made a mental observe to myself to speak to peugeot and arrange for a demonstrator asap. That demo arrived in january (massive waiting list seemingly) within the form of a 2. 0hdi gt with 163 bhp. My first impressions have been wow… Well carried out peugeot! This automobile is what i’d describe as unconventionally beautiful, from the sweeping side profile to the bubble roof and rear window, peugeot have controlled what i will simplest describe as a visual masterpiece for this form of money. Adequate, the the front cease is unluckily normal peugeot however it’s very clean to forgive it that! Positioned the rcz in a vehicle park next to its competitors and it makes the tt look stupid and the scirocco look dated and uninteresting (which is a few going because i love the scirocco). Inner, you have a totally nicely laid out cabin with masses of area (with the exception of the rear seats which might be actually most effective there for comedy fee). The power is very good too, despite the fact that i will say that the diesel engine felt like it may use an extra 25-30bhp but it does deal with nicely thru the corners and the frame roll is saved to a minimal, even if pushed and the tyres are beginning to tell you sufficient is sufficient. The reality that you automobile flip the passenger airbag off meant that my 14 month vintage son become able to sit down within the front (desirable task sincerely as he’d in no way have fit in the back let alone his vehicle seat) which each he and that i virtually enjoyed and think that it need to be a preferred characteristic on all cars. I surely like this automobile even to the point in which i asked the md if i should have one as a agency automobile. Unluckily we have a minimal 5 door car coverage that’s certainly disappointing however simply approach that i’m able to should attempt to tap up peugeot for a 6 month demo programme.
