Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Peugeot Onyx Paris 2012 Powered by the diesel V8 from the 908 Le Mans prototype, with the addition of an electric hybrid boost, the Peugeot Onyx is a functioning hypercar concept. Itís built around a carbon chassis, as we would expect, but thatís where normality ends! The copper front body panels are untreated so that they will acquire a verdigris weathered effect over time, the dashboard is made of papier-m‚chť and the seat coverings and headlining are recycled felt! The carbon on Norevís model is replicated in simple satin black and this contrasts superbly with the smooth, bright copper foil on the doors and front wings. The interior is neatly modelled too and the shape looks very good. Unlike the 1:18 version of this model, in 1:43 we do not see the coloured flashes on the door camera pods or any brake detail, but itís still an attractive model.
Prolific maker of die-casts, most subjects having a French conection. Particularly good for concept cars and design studies. Made in China/France
