World's craziest concepts from Geneva Motor Show

PGR 4 car revealed, Peugeot announces the winner


Peugeot announced the finalists earlier this month and today they revealed the winner of their 2007 Design Contest. For the contest Peugeot challenged designers to create a concept car that is both innovative in the use of technology and expresses the future of car design. And it looks like the Flux edged out the competition with its hydrogen fueled engine, decked out sleek plastic panels, and free flowing frame. The grand prize winning Flux will be built (full scale) at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show and will also be included in upcoming Xbox 360 game Project Gotham Racing 4. So there you have it, one of the first confirmed cars in PGR 4 ... the Flux.

I understand that they're making a real version of this. Looking at the door, I'm not sure what opens for you to get out. Is it like the General Lee and the doors don't open?

Hydrogen, eh?

This had better be the future for cars, I'm sick of breathing in the stinking fumes of millions of petrol cars!

If a pregnant woman breathes in one breath of exhaust fumes, the child can be born with severe mental/physical problems...

Kudos to the winner (pun intended), looks good.

Must be hell of a buzz seeing your design in the game and being built for real!

Major Foul! I call MAJOR FOUL! How'd the heck did this get up on 360 Fanboy without anyone pointing out this- http://www.peugeot-concours-design.com/projets/projet4/img5.jpg

Super sexy car with an integrated 360? By far my favorite piece of the entire design.

This should vault the designers career! Great looking car, can't wait to race it. Does anyone know when this game comes out? Does it come out before or after forza 2?

That was the best (and most realistic) design in the bunch in my eyes, so I'm not too surprised it won. Great design.

To those wondering when PGR4 will arrive, Peter Moore has stated in the past that Forza and PGR are the "one-two punch" of the MS Games Studio racing line up...therefore, they will be released in alternating years meaning: PGR3 - Holiday 2005, Forza 2 - Holiday 2006 (yes, it's late), PGR4 - Holiday 2007, Forza 3 - Holiday 2008...and so on.
So, anticipate PGR4 in the last quarter of calendar 2007.

#12^^ Well you are probably right about PGR4 being atleast a year away, but Forza 2 isn't coming out during the fall holiday season. It's coming out this May as said here:
http://www.gamespot.com/news/6165993.html?tag=latestnews;title;4

-that link also names some of Forza 2's Euro Exotics, but if you're like me than you're waiting to see what Vettes make the cut!

killergreen...im gonna say for sure the c5's n c6's will make it. (along with the z06's) i dont know much about the vette's and i dont like them that much...but they are amazing cars, worthwhile racers and alot of racing history...you can expect vettes to be well represented...a little less than ferrari or porsche tho...
