Oxia from 1988 was a fully functioning prototype with spectacular
performance. Designed by Gerard Welter, the Oxia was instantly
recognisable as a Peugeot with its slit-like headlights and
slatted grille with the Lion emblem mounted in the center.
The lightweight carbon
fiber body of the Peugeot Oxia came complete with an enormous
adjustable rear spoiler helping to keep the car glued to the
road. Under the Oxia's skin was a 2.85 litre, 680 horsepower
turbocharged V6 engine, six-speed gearbox, permanent four wheel
drive system, electronically controlled axle differentials and
automatic tire pressure monitors.
