You just know the French carmakers are whipping up their finest haute cuisine for the upcoming Paris show this September. As exhibit A, we present the first shots of Peugeot's 908 RC concept, courtesy of the scoops at Carscoop. The PSA prototype will introduce the Audi-contending LeMans diesel engine, a 5.5 V12 HDi mill producing 700 Hp and 885 lbs.-ft of torque. It could also signal a sucessor to the barely-breathing 607. Voila!
