Nothing like banging them specials out, which is what Peugeot has done with a Red Carbon Limited Edition for its RCZ. Only 300 units will be available for the UK market, based on a Sport model variant but suitably embellished with a red-stitched interior, bespoke badging and higher level of specification.

Key bits include unique Red Carbon badging and black-style sports front seats, trimmed in ‘Simple Leather’ and featuring red stitching. The Red Carbon theme goes on for the dashboard, sports steering wheel and short shift gear lever as well.

Standard equipment for the variant include a Vision Pack, which has Xenon, directional and self-levelling headlamps, 19-inch Solstice alloy wheels in a matte onyx black finish as well asa Black Pack, which has matte black roof arches and brilliant black front grille, door mirror covers and brake calipers in the mix.

Otherwise, no mechanical changes, with the RCZ Red Carbon being available in three engine guise options (1.6 THP 156 and THP 200 as well as 2.0 HDi 163) and in two exterior colour choices, these being Moroccan Red or Nera Black. Read our review of the Peugeot RCZ.
