In November 2012, Peugeot announced their intention of building a more powerful, performance oriented RCZ. In July 2013, the first official pictures of the car were released. The RCZ R has a turbocharged 1.6l engine capable of producing 270 bhp and 330NM of torque, allowing it a 0-62 time of 5.9 seconds and a top speed limited to 155 mph. It also features uprated 380mm Alcon brakes and suspension, a significantly reduced curb weight and a Torsen front differential.
Erroneously named as the Peugeot RCZ-R, the RCZ R is a Tier 1 car, and was added in update 1.1.0. It can only be unlocked through its own special event.
The RCZ R has the following rank statistics:
Performance and Usage
The RCZ R, while not the worst car, does not excel in any stat. It has mediocre acceleration, handling and top speed, making it what is was meant to be: A mid-end D Class car.
Given its otherwise average performance, the RCZ R does not have any use in events, Multiplayer, or career mode.
The Peugeot RCZ R does reward 75 on its 5th Mastery challenge, however.
The RCZ R is not featured in any collections .
Price and availability
After its initial release, the Peugeot RCZ R was made available to players, save between October 4-10, 2017.
