PROTOTYPE PEUGEOT ASPHALTE
A visitor tests this red Peugeot Asphalte which has no doors and only one seat at the Geneva International Car Show, March 6. The prototype is equipped with a 106 Cashemere automatic powerplant which Peugeot`s engine specialists managed to unfold so that it fits under the Asphalte`s extra-flat bonnet. Coupled via a smooth automatic gearbox, the 106 engine provides powerful acceleration performance. The car reaches a top speed of 200 km/h, has a length of 3.435m, and ground clearance 0.12m. pmv/Photo by Pierre Virot.
