1986 Peugeot Proxima Concept

The wild-styled two-seat Proxima was characterized by its rear-wheel covers nearly separated from the rest of the body and the almost non-existent front and rear overhangs. The Proxima's power unit was a twin-turbo V6 engine outputting 600 horsepower. The four-wheel-drive system automatically activated an onboard computer sensed rear wheel spin. The tire pressure was then monitored and restored automatically. The backward-sliding glass canopy revealed a bright red scarlet interior, including a navigational system and a rear-vision monitor display connected to a rear-mounted camera. Five color displays were installed for driver and passenger use. It was presented at the 1986 Paris Motor Show.
