Peugeot Onyx

The doors and wings are hand made,from a copper foil, while most of the other panels are constructed from carbon fiber. The roof and windows are made available from a lightweight acrylic, with that they had in thier minds to come out with a Super Light wieght Vehicle. The Onyx weighs at just 1100 kg (2425 lbs) and has a length of 4650mm, width of 2200mm and it stands tall at 1130mm.

This super power is granted by the 3.7-liter V8 engine which generates hybrid HDi FAP (‘Filtre a Particule’-particulate filter) 600 bhp (447 kW), which is linked to a sequential 6 speed gearbox. A highlight over here is that, Onyx features a kinetic energy recovery system, which can channel the energy of braking lithium-ion batteries and then automatically it discharges the gathered enerygy, providing an extra 80 hp (60 kW).
