Peugeot Exalt Concept

They must’ve had a helluva brainstorming session at the Peugeot offices when they came up with the EXALT concept. The French manufacturer has left very few stones unturned when it comes to unique materials used, and it all adds up to a very eclectic automobile.

Bare stainless steel covers the front three-quarters of the car, while the rest is covered in a red, man-made textile called “Shark Skin.” Peugeot says it not only creates a dramatic look, but also slightly improves the car’s aerodynamics. The hybrid drivetrain features a 1.6 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (good for 270 hp) and a 70 horsepower electric motor. The offbeat choices continue in the cabin as well, with a center console and door trims carved out of ebony, and other sections formed from basalt fiber, a lightweight material made from melted basalt rock.
