Malaysian Peugeot distributor Nasim is gearing up to launch their latest model the Peugeot RCZ at the Bangsar Shopping Center this week (May 20-22) and reader Shahrul Hamdan has spotted it prior to the launch.

This white unit with black wheels will most probably make its way to the BSC display. I wonder if this one has a manual or an automatic transmission. Nasim has announce pre-launch that both a manual and an automatic transmission will be made available.

The auto transmission is paired with a 1.6 litre turbocharged PSA-BMW Prince engine making 156hp and 240Nm, a similar tune to that found in the Peugeot 308.

The manual version is mated to a more powerful version, making 200 horses and 275Nm of torque. You can click on the images above for hi-res versions.
