After the introduction of the 308 hatchback earlier this year, Peugeot is now going full throttle on the development of the 308 CC, due to hit the showroom mid next year.
Our European photographers snapped prototypes of the future convertible undergoing high-speed testing on a racing circuit in France.
Like its predecessor, the new 308 CC will mimic the hatchback’s front-end design and will get a retractable hardtop that folds in two parts.
Overall length and width won’t differ much from the 3- and 5-door hatchback but credible rumours suggest the CC will be the world’s first car to be offered with a diesel hybrid.
All conventional engines offered for the hatchback, however, will be available for the topless car, too.
