Ah, another short-run special, one that dresses up an already striking figure. France and Germany had the Onyx, and now it’s the United Kingdom’s turn – the Peugeot RCZ Magnetic Limited Edition will be heading across the Channel, with just 170 examples to be had. These will span over three variants, the 1.6 THP 156 and THP 200 petrol, and 2.0 HDi 163 diesel.

So what does going the Magnetic route bring about? Enhanced equipment, for one – a Sport trim level adds an soft-touch leather steering wheel and short-shift gear lever as well as sports seats. Also on, 19-inch Sortilege wheels finished in onyx matt black and a ‘black pack’ of goodies, which lends the roof arches, front grille, door mirror covers and brake calipers said shade.

Two exterior colours are available for the RCZ Magnetic, Pearlescent Pearl white or Metallic Nera black – going the white route gets a black interior, while black bags the red flame leather interior as seen in the pix.
