Peugeot 308RCZ

I was watching the latest episode of Top Gear (BBC) and they announced that Peugeot is building this stunning car for the European buyers. Why can't we get something like this in North America?!
Peugeot released a new set of photos of their latest concept, the Peugeot 308 RCZ. The Peugeot 308 RCZ is a 2+2 coupe that uses numerous light-weight aluminum components, including two roll over protection bars that separate the passenger compartment. 

The Peugeot 308 RCZ is powered by a 1.6 liter 175hp THP engine developed from the EP6DTS engine designed and developed on collaboration with BMW. Through a new engine management software specially developed for the Peugeot 308 RCZ the 1.6 liter engine produces 218 bhp.
The Peugeot 308 RCZ Twin-Scroll turbocharger optimally pairs the exhaust gases flowing from two cylinders to ensure maximum flow onto the turbine.

The Peugeot 308 RCZ's maximum speed is 235 km/h and it needs 7.0 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h. In gear acceleration is impressive: only 7.5 seconds in 5th gear from 80 to 120 km/h.What an incredible car indeed!
