Ingenious Peugeot electric concept in Shanghai AT the recent Shanghai Motor Show, Peugeot presented a life-size model of the RD concept car, which was the winning project in the fifth design competition organised by the French Lion. The Peugeot RD concept was designed by Colombian student Carlos Arturo Torres Tovar who won the cLa Griffe d trophy along with a cheque for 10,000 euros (RM47,186).<br><br> The competition theme was cImagine the Peugeot in the worldwide megalopolis of tomorrow d, and it was a resounding success with over 2,500 projects submitted from candidates of 95 different nationalities. The 27-year-old Tovar, who grew up in the small industrial town of Tunja, has been working and modelling in clay since childhood. He recently graduated from the Industrial Design School at the National University of Colombia, and has drawn, sketched and sculpted a host of vehicles in various materials.<br><br> Meanwhile, the Peugeot RD concept combines the sensations of a three- wheeled scooter with the driving pleasure of a saloon car, while retaining a silent vehicle cabin environment. It has an ingenious system of articulation that provides irreproachable road holding allied with the ability to easily thread its way through urban traffic. Equipped with an electric motor, the driving position in this single-seat concept offers a new feeling of freedom, thanks to its panoramic vision, voice- message driving assistance and a heads-up display system that gives all the information required for travelling in complete safety.<br><br> Being accessible and solid, the Peugeot RD concept fits perfectly with the complicated mobility one would expect to encounter in a megalopolis of the future. The Peugeot RD concept combines the pleasures of a three- wheeled scooter and a saloon car. Tovar has extensive experience in sculpting vehicles in various materials.<br><br> For Malaysian Peugeot Enthusiasts For Malaysian Peugeot Enthusiasts MAY 1, 2009 | NEW SUNDAY TIMES | CARS.BIKES.TRUCKS | V9 V8 | MAY 1, 2009 | NEW SUNDAY TIMES | CARS.BIKES.TRUCKS High ratings for 407 SW Faye (left) and Liz are both impressed with the French Lion. n By Thomas Huong Jia Yu Ch,nn0l sh:w pr0s0nt0rs h,v0 f:@nd th0 P0@g0:t 407 SW t: b0 , v0rs,t4l0, styl4sh ,nd c:mf:rt,bl0 c,r.

It replaced the ele0ant 403 in May 1960 and was prod>ced in France >ntil 1975.<br><br> As the world co>ld not 0et eno>0h of this car, its prod>ction r>n was licensed to developin0 co>ntries like Ni0eria and was ch>rned o>t >ntil 1989. Over two million >nits of the 404 were s>pplied not only in sedan, estate and pick>p versions b>t also as a convertible in 1961 and a co>pe in 1962. The 404 be0>n when Pe>0eot entr>sted Italian car desi0n firm Pininfarina with the body-stylin0.<br><br> The res>lt was a French answer to the cfintail d mania in North America and germany. It bore a strikin0 resemblance to another Pininfarina infl>enced car, namely the A>stin Cambrid0e/Morris Oxford of En0land b>t was more refined and stylish. Incidentally, this was the only model in the Pe>0eot ran0e that had its 9 rear li0hts embedded in the finned rear win0s.<br><br> The 404 also sold in 0reat n>mbers worldwide d>e to the famed Pe>0eot en0ineerin0, occ>pant safety and comfort q>alities. The base models were fitted with a 1,468cc and 1,618cc as well as 1,796cc carb>retted and later, the f>el- injected XC ta00ed fo>r-cylinder petrol water-cooled en0ines. Still, it was the Pe>0eot diesel en0ines that made the 404 a bi0 seller worldwide.<br><br> The 404 XD 1,816cc and 1,948cc diesel en0ines competed a0ainst the Mercedes-Benz 190D and diesel- powered A>stin Cambrid0e. In November 1965, the 404 diesel variant was described by the British 8A>tocar 9 ma0azine as the fastest diesel-powered wheels then. This variant was reported as havin0 a distinctive diesel rattle when idlin0 and roars at hi0h revs b>t was 8very reasonable 9 in performance.<br><br> Motorin0 jo>rnalists praised its s>re-footed road holdin0, 0ood steerin0, powerf>l fade-free brakes, comfortable seats, fr>0al f>el cons>mption and saw the 404 as possessin0 the characteristics of a prolon0ed cattention-free d lifespan. The 404D became the >ndisp>ted leader in the French taxi market and many other co>ntries in the 1960 9s and 70 9s. In Malaysia, cab owners saw the 404D as a viable alternative to german and British makes, as it withstood the tropical weather well and provided a comfortable ride on lon0 distance coastal tr>nk roads at that time.<br><br> The petrol versions were a favo>rite amon0 civil servants, especially school teachers. In 1976, the 404 petrol model was retailed at RM14,235.18 while the diesel variant stood at RM16,549.57 and were commonly seen on o>r roads. It also had o>tstandin0 safety feat>res.<br><br> Stoppin0 power was excellent in its time d>e to the power-assisted Hydrovac 12 ¾-inch diameter front discs brakes co>pled with lar0e 10-inch rear dr>ms and complemented with a load sensitive press>re limitin0 valve. All-ro>nd Helical sprin0s with telescopic shock absorbers and anti- roll bar, lower wish-bones in front and stabilizer bar and radi>s arms provided a hi0h level of comfort in the 404. The cabin had pl>sh seats, padded hood on the dashboard and hi0h-0rade carpetin0.<br><br> Meanwhile, the 404 was also le0endary for rally victories. Winnin0 the East Africa Safari consec>tively from 1966 till 1968, the 404 earned a rep>tation for developin0 the fo>ndation of f>t>re rally s>ccess for Pe>0eot. Many rally veterans remember the remarkable and victorio>s performance of the 404 d>rin0 the atrocio>s conditions of the 1968 season.<br><br> Karamjit Sin0h, who is 2002 World Prod>ction Car Rally Champion, was introd>ced to the rallyin0 scene when he entered his father 9s 404 for his first rally competition in the 1980 9s. Th>s, it comes as no s>rprise that the 404 and the Pe>0eot marq>e remains close to his heart till this day. Karamjit c>rrently owns three 404 >nits in addition to a 204, 504 and 405.<br><br> The 404 is hard to come by these days and is a m>ch so>0ht after classic car. >Technology
