Peugeot RCZ

Peugeot RCZ: Oh, Peugeot, you say? Makers of anonymous French hatchbacks? One-time seller of yellow-headlighted sedans and wagons in the US? All true. And while the rest of the Peugeot lineup doesn’t inspire a lot of enthusiasm, they do make this: A stunning coupe with 270 hp under the hood and… oh please—who cares about the specs? The RCZ could have a top speed of 34 mph and have a suspension made of oily rags and it wouldn’t matter because it looks so boss.
