Peugeot has announced plans to offer one lucky person a once-in-a-lifetime chance to ride shotgun in the Onyx concept.

As part of the company's Goodwood Onyx competition, fans can submit their contact information in return for the chance to win two tickets to the Goodwood Festival of Speed and a passenger seat ride in the Onyx concept when it completes its afternoon run in the Supercar class.

The contest is currently underway and all British citizens over the age of 18 can enter here.

As a refresher, the Onyx concept is powered by a mid-mounted 3.7-liter V8 HDi FAP engine that produces 600 HP (441 kW). It is backed up by a six-speed sequential transmission and an electric motor that delivers an additional 80 HP (59 kW) during acceleration.

Dynamic concept comes alive: Peugeot Onyx Concept car

With most concept cars usually being modelled for static appreciation, the Peugeot Onyx breaks the traditional mould with superb authenticity, innovative use of materials in its construction and performance to impress.

Within the carbon fibre shell sits a mid-mounted 3.7-litre V8 HDi FAP diesel-electric hybrid power unit developed with the expertise of Peugeot Sport and the experience acquired from racetracks the world over. NACA ducts in the double-bubble roofline supply the intake for the diesel V8 to transmit 600bhp to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Intelligent HYbrid4 technology recovers kinetic energy stored in lithium-ion batteries, to be redeployed to enhance acceleration, boosting the power by 80bhp, to give this ‘Concept Car’ less than 2kg per horsepower, which means Onyx achieves high performance without altering the purity and elegance of its exterior style.

The exterior is fashioned by hand by a master craftsman, the wings and doors are of pure copper sheet, polished to a mirror finish and left ‘unprotected’, so that over time the appearance will gain a patina – thus Onyx is alive and going green!

The Peugeot signature ‘Motion and Emotion’ is being fully played out at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed hillclimb and is certainly a brand on the move upmarket.

This design looks awesome!! The color combination and the low profile make it look really aggressive and aerodynamic. The interior is nicely done where it eliminates the addition of actual seats by making them out of whatever material that is in there. Should have come on in one of the batman movies or Iron-Man movies just for fun and kicks.

As somebody detests Peugeot passenger cars, I think this car looks fantastic. The low-wide stance and massive arches are a winning combination!

Still think it looks like a typical design student's project, drawn to life. Epic nevertheless!
