Peugeot Exalt : Updated four-door coupe concept revealed

An updated version of the Peugeot Exalt concept is headed to next month’s Paris motor show. The Euro-spec Exalt concept combines the bare steel body work of the original Beijing show car with a new grey-coloured ‘shark skin’ rear end. Peugeot explains the shape-shifting shark skin material draws on ‘bio-mimicry’ to improve the car’s aerodynamics and enhance fuel efficiency.
