Peugeot Teases New Onyx Supercar Concept for Paris Motor Show

There was no doubt in our mind that France's "Big Three", Peugeot, Citroen and Renault, will each try to impress visitors and the press alike with dazzling concept models at the 2012 edition of the Paris Motor Show. The first study to come into light ahead of the show is from Peugeot and it's named Onyx. The French carmaker released a teaser image and video to prepare us about the concept for a futuristic looking supercar. No other official details have been announced yet, though Spain's es.Autoblog reported that the Onyx will boast a hybrid drivetrain combining a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine tweaked to deliver around 250 horsepower with an electric motor for a total system output of about 400hp. Until we find out more from Peugeot, hop over the break to watch the teaser clip. Story References: Peugeot via Worldcarfans & es.Autblog Another hat tip to Bruno R! Source; Carscoop
