What a tragic waste of a 406 Coupé :evil:

It looks atrocious. In fact it looks awful and sick-inducing :evil:

If someone told me they'd seen a fantastic conversion of a Peugeot 406 Coupe I'd be quite keen to hear about the Activa suspension.

But a cosmetic exercise like this is an insult to both cars

It looks like the windows are held in with tape

At least the 406 coupe makes a better sized version over the mr2 kits! But lets be honest, its not going to fool anyone is it! Especially not with the arch gaps like that!

I wouldn't have one, but done properly it's not actually a bad looking car at all :

Obviously, built and finished by an unskilled monkey, it'll be a piece of utter crap, as the ebay ad shows.

How odd - no mention of what engine it is.

<quick tax disc check>
OK, I'm a bit surprised, and yet unsurprised at the same time.

v6? Of course not.
Diesel? Well, it wouldn't have surprised me...
No, it's a four-pot petrol.

Any remaining shred of credibility will go as soon as the onlooker's guide dog hears it fire up.

I think I saw on some discussion of the kit that the V6 could be tuned to about 250 bhp

Not if it's not in the car. #-o

I've just bought a car with a V6 engine and proper suspension for a fraction of the cost of that and it both looks far better and is way more comfy :wink:

Yes, the ES9 V6 is very conservatively tuned as it stands and is good for plenty more. Some twin turbo them...
