Pure Euro Roadster, PGO Cevennes is Ready for Debut

Concepts

Forget all of that high-tech gadgetry in today's sports cars. The new PGO Cevennes speedster is pure driving fun.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the Mazda MX-5. It’s just not that unique to see one around town. You could opt for an old MGB or Triumph TR6, but your mechanic bills will soon be too much for your wallet to handle. Fortunately, PGO Automobiles has just unveiled its updated 2013 Cevennes speedster. We showed you a concept version called the Water Snake earlier this month, but this is the actual production car. It's powered by a BMW-sourced 1.6-liter turbo-four and is good for 181 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.

That power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox and the car tips the scales at just 2,200 lbs. It has a top speed of 140 mph, but going fast in this thing isn’t the ultimate goal. It’s about having fun behind the wheel while rowing your own gears. If this is starting to sound a little too perfect, then here's the kicker: it’s not coming to the US. Compared to the previous Cevennes, this new one has a frame that’s 15 percent more rigid than and there's also a new suspension set up. Pricing hasn’t been announced but we want it nonetheless.
