Peugeot 5X8 touring car unveiled – sort of
A digital artist has transformed the Peugeot 508 sedan into a stunning two-door passenger car in a new computer-generated film.
We’ve come a long way in the CG world since Dire Straits wanted their MTV.
This stunning Peugeot 508 two-door DTM-style touring racing car being tested at the Paul Ricard circuit in France – the home of Formula 1’s French Grand Prix – isn’t actually real.
The Peugeot Sport 5X8 is a collaboration between French car designer Thomas Clavet and 3D artist Jpog.
Taking inspiration from the Peugeot 508 Sport Engineered hybrid road car, including lime green highlights, the 5X8 loses the sedan’s rear doors, adds a giant rear spoiler and sports a set of ‘turbo-fan’ aerodynamic wheel covers.
While the images, cheekily teased as low-res spy photos, look far more real than they have any right to, the 5X8 will sadly remain a virtual project.
from Peugeot real hypercar, the 9X8 in endurance, will make its first outing in competition this weekend during the 6 Hours of Monza.
