The Peugeot SR1 is the best what could happen to Peugeot's design language
Peugeot will show the Peugeot SR1 at the coming Geneva Motor Show. It is supposed to illustrate the new "design language" Peugeot will be using for the coming cars. I have recently seen the sketches for a coming 508 limousine and there are clearly similarities between the prototype SR1 and the 508. And that's good! You have to go quite a long way back until you find a really good looking Peogeot. I would name the 504 Coupé, the 406 Coupé and for example also the 205 (GTI) as good example. What they have in common is the fact that Pininfarina was involved in all these designs. Many of the recent Peugeots were rather ugly in my eyes, at least not really good looking. With the new design language Peugeot can against make a big step forward and I hope that future cars take as many elements as possible of this prototype! Maybe they should try to take away some of the Aston Martin features in the SR1 though.
