  • Peugeot has again turned dream into reality with the Peugeot Onyx Supercar Concept, a 21st-century supercar designed for admirers of high performance.

    The Peugeot Onyx concept is a marriage of natural and technical materials, and one of the most innovative concept cars to date. In the video.

    We caught a glimpse of the peugeot onyx concept a few weeks ago on peugeot s facebook page. peugeot however chose to be a little coy and.

    The concept car concept is translated as "the idea of a car". This is a kind of prototype car, which tests people's reactions to new technologies being introduced, design solutions, etc. In its original form, prototypes are never launched into mass production.

    In addition, it improves the quality of the surrounding air by dehumidifying it. These reunite as far as possible from the bodywork to reduce drag. With its V8 engine in a central rear position, the Onyx propels its admirers into a world of high performance, controlled in all circumstances thanks to intuitive instruments and controls. They also support small spoilers which direct the upper and side flows.

    Here at Top Gear , we like to think of ourselves as being grounded in reality. But this is at least all stuff you can experience, stuff you can drive. Because this is a concept car, and then some, marrying all those concept-car futuristic looks and materials with a trick up its sleeve: One that actually works. More than that, it is one capable of propelling the Onyx to mph and beyond. But first, some detail on the car.

    Before you get too disappointed, remember that this car only weighs 1,kg, so the Onyx has a power-to-weight ratio of bhp per tonne. Which is a lot - even a car as ballistic as the Ferrari F12 can only manage bhp per tonne.

    The low kerbweight is mainly thanks to the piece carbon-fibre chassis, which only weighs kg and helps to counteract the more unusual - and heavier - copper body panels. There are other weird materials on the Onyx, too.

    The dash is made out of squashed newspapers and appears to have a wood-like grain, but if you peer closely you can see the remnants of printed words and letters. And swathes of the interior - the seats, sections of the headlining, door panels - are made of recycled felt. So, in spite of the relatively normal diesel engine, the day begins as most concept-car shoots do.

    The initial impression is that the Onyx is a bit of a trailer queen, with the usual concept-car nannying. Truck rolls into scruffy-looking test track. Covers - a silver topcoat followed by a fleece undercoat - are removed. Wacky-looking Peugeot Onyx is revealed.

    Car is gingerly pushed off the lorry. I smile encouragingly at everyone. But before we can get into the potentially embarrassing driving stuff, the engine needs warming up. Like the Le Mans car, the Onyx needs to be plugged into a generator to heat all the fluids before it can even be turned over.

    After half an hour, mechanics start to clamber into the Onyx, which means the temperatures must be about right. But this does at least give us a chance to peer into the business end of the Onyx and, to be honest, it all looks a bit incongruous. Things you recognise from any ordinary family hatch. You can even see a section of exhaust poking through bodywork. The wheel gun shatters my peaceful peering. The wheels are bolted back on, the bonnet is clipped back into place and I get a final briefing from the chief engineer.

    The steering wheel is another carry-over, full of buttons and confusing-looking switches. And the view out of the windscreen is limited. In fact, the view out of anywhere is severely restricted. The car begins to make sense now, sat here in the cockpit and performing the start procedure. Dip the heavy clutch, and push the start button on the wheel.

    The Onyx starts to turn over. Wait for the engineer to turn the ignition on. It fires, but not smoothly. Then pull right-hand paddle to engage first gear. Hear the gearbox engage the first cog. Ease the clutch out… steady. Hit the neutral button. More revs this time, slip the clutch more. And that really is the scariest part of the Onyx.
