Concept Car of the Week: Peugeot Proxima (1986)


The Peugeot Proxima concept: motorsport engineering in a science-fiction coupé

The year was 1986 and French car maker Peugeot was in a celebratory mood. They had just won the World Rally Championship two years in a row, both as a manufacturer and in the individual driver categories. To celebrate, Peugeot created a concept car that was introduced at the Paris motor Show that year. One might expect a concept car celebrating rally victories to be rally themed, but Peugeot actually introduced a successor to the well-received Quasar coupé concept of 1984.
