Peugeot is planning to show off their latest concept car, the Onyx, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England this July.

The Onyx was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September of 2012, but it’s appearance at the Goodwood festival will be it’s very first public demonstration.

The Onyx is a diesel-hybrid car, with a carbon fibre shell and wings and doors that are made from pure copper. The copper wings and doors attribute to the futuristic look of this concept car.

The idea is that the copper is polished to a mirror finish and then left unprotected. This means that the copper will change in colour as it begins to oxidize.

It also features a 3.7 liter V8 diesel engine which will deliver 600 horsepower. It is also teamed with a electric motor which brings an extra 80 horsepower to the table. You can probably calculate the speed and power of this Peugeot!

The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place between 11 and 14 July in West Sussex, England.
