Hi Dom1102, that's definitely good to know! what was the ambient temperature when you did your run? It's 32 Celsius where i'm from, so i'll assume i get less.. haha

haha has anybody out there tried doing a 0-60 timing run? maybe it'll be faster than quoted!
I'd do it to try once my break-in period ends

Not to disrespect the lesser powered versions but seems to me that Peugeot UK have done a 'ratner' (google it) specifically with the marketing of the 200bhp petrol RCZ model. None of the marketing I have seen even mentioned the top end model, let alone the real BHP figure or actual 0-60 time (actually way less than 8 secs ;) ). Ok so it isn't an out and out sports car ( probably better for it) but I read a forum post from one of the (possibly less than sportsmanlike) 2011 le mans drivers (forgot the name) who mentioned that the team racing drivers helped with the tuning and development of the models sweet handling and dynamics. if all this isn't marketing Gold, tell me what is? Come on Peugeut PR dept :sleeping-yellow: , big up the 200THP, the competition are wiping the floor with you column inches wise!!

Ps this forum sucks on iPad/iPhone! 2nd attempt to post, lost first draft after accidentally touching a link! Is there an App?
