    AT LAST - I own an RCZ GT. (THP200)

    Yet another vehicle to add to the collection.

    Red Jett still fantastic, but this RCZ is a beauty.

    39,000 klicks, registered in 2015. One of the last few sold in Oz.

    In 2015 Lamborghini sold 84 cars in Oz. Only 70 RCZ's were sold. Exclusive.

    I got a fantastic deal.

    The RCZ is as cute as a cheeky Parisian waitress.

    I just had to add this for Le Mans fans.

    The RCZ's double-bubble roof.


    The RCZ roof was derived from this racing car.

    What a sight, last lap of the 24 Hour Le Mans 2009, with Peugeot placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

    And two Aussies placing No. 1.

    Enjoy.

    Ha. Took possession of the RCZ today. My wife and I have loved this car ever since we saw it at a Pug dealership in 2010, when we purchased our 207cc Sport THP150.

    The RCZ is in such great condition. I emailed to seller and told him it is the best 2nd hand car I've ever purchased. Am I lucky.

    Never even driven one before, such was the trust.

    And, not disappointed. It handles very well; sounds great; goes great and is very comfortable. Not to mention the kudos it brings, as RCZ's are very rare in Oz.

    Soon as I got my hands on it, this morning, I spent three hours caressing it:

    Oil change Castrol Edge 5W30
    Oil filter change
    Engine flush (Nulons)
    Subaru SA459
    Fit K&N air filter
    Replace pollen filter
    Replace spark plugs
    Replace wiper blades
    Replace fuel filter

    Most of the filters were in excellent shape, but I wanted to do my thing. Spark plugs (so important in the Prince THP engines), were originals (40,000 kilometres). Yup, they needed changing. I replace plugs on my THP150 every 20,000 kilometres.

    I'm still in shock!

    Congrats on the purchase mate!

    This is probably the most attractive modern Peugeot - very distinctive on the road and a good alternative to a TT.
