Just a year after the Ferrari F40 made its debut, Peugeot had something up their sleeve too, and it was called the Oxia. This supercar concept from 1988 was powered by a 679-horsepower transversely-mounted, 2.8L twin-turbocharged V6 engine and had a top speed of over 200 miles per hour, making it a worthy competitor.
As you can see, this vehicle was far ahead of its time, starting from the exterior, which was handcrafted from a mixture of carbon fiber, Kevlar, and epoxy-resin composite bonded to aluminum honeycomb and sheet panels, making it extremely lightweight as well as agile. Step inside, and you’ll find a computer, display, CD player, and a radio / telephone that controlled the interior climate, while also providing travel data as well as navigational information. Peugeot invested roughly $2.7-million USD in the project, but unfortunately, the Oxia did not go into production.
- This model car is a stunning replica of the iconic Ghostbusters car, the ECTO-1, based on the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Futura Duplex
- The car features spookily good details: working steering, a trapdoor with a ghost trap, an extending gunner seat & a moving ghost sniffer
- A delight for adult Ghostbusters: Afterlife fans, it includes the Proton Pack, which swivels out of a side panel to trap ghouls and ghosts
