As the 2018 Paris Auto Show is fast approaching, the teasing frenzy has begun, with the latest brand to offer an initial glimpse into a new product being Peugeot.
Referred to aptly as their “latest ConceptCar”, the study has something very 504-ish in its design, as previewed by an image released by the French car firm and shared on social media by Peugeot Sport Club UK.
Jean-Philippe Imparato, on the other hand, who posed next to it, sharing the image on Twitter, said the study made him “feel like a child” when he first laid eyes on it. The brand’s boss revealed that the yet to be named concept is the result of “two years of hard work”.
This means that it was in development alongside the second-gen 508, which was presented to the public at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Thus, we could take this information as a hint to the car’s underpinnings.
If it follows in the footsteps of the mid-size car in terms of styling, then the show car should be stunning to look at, with 504 influences, jammed up into a two-door coupe package.
Meanwhile, we’ll have to wait for the Paris Auto Show to start on October 2, with the Press Days, to catch a better glimpse of the Peugeot “#ConceptCar”.

Another photo of the new @Peugeot #ConceptCar. We have edited the original photo so you can see more of it. We think it’s a 508 Coupe that looks heavily influenced by the 504 Coupe of 1969. #UnboringTheFuture pic.twitter.com/cb8jJanLfo
