Like Shravan says, this baby resembles the SLR. I think it looks excellent. I love the front styling - it's very aggressive.

Well, as said before those are intake trumpets... aka "velocity stacks".

Now as to why they would be covered in glass/plastic... well my guess is that the trumpets are actually housed in a glass airbox which is surrounded by an air filter.
My guess would also be that when the bonet is opened the glass stays exactly where it is...

Can anyone find pics of this thing with the bonet open?

cheers

Doesnt this look like a total copy of the 05 SLK??

But this is nice too...

I saw the SLK in person the launch edition, it looks soo much nicer than the picture and it is soo much better than the prev one..It made me want to have one..

Hey have been doing serious looking at the design and my take is that the hole behind the peugot logo acts as a ram air duct / scoop which pressurises the air into the clear plastic bubble for the velocity stacks.

Also the bubble doesnt look like its connected anywhere inside the passenger cabin. Seriously wish I could get my hands on the snap with the bonnet open

Also, I liked the place of the exhaust pipes!

Funnily there are reports that the 908 is likely to make it to the market first, very soon according to the Peugeot dealer here.

Awesome proportions, Awesome lines, Beautiful car (both the 907 as well as the 908). I love Peugeots. But where is a 506?

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder Hellspawn. To each his own.

Personally i love the flowing lines and the sporty look coupled with the macho grunt it produces. I would love to see your expression when you see this baby in the flesh. I couldnt take my eyes off her on my last years trip to France. Was a welcome change from the huge population of Porsche's.
