Omani Singing Superstar Salah Al Zadjali Launches Revolutionary New Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe in Oman

Stunning Looks and Innovative Shape Set To Wow the Omani Motoring Public


Muscat, 19th November, 2011:  The brand new Peugeot RCZ sports coupe with its revolutionary new looks and styling has been launched in Oman with the help of the Sultanate’s singing sensation Salah Al Zadjali.

The RCZ is totally unique among its Peugeot counterparts and brings a new era of French chic and sophistication allied to revolutionary design features to the motoring landscape in Oman.

Salah Al Zadjali added a sense of glamour and excitement to the launch when he appeared in the new Peugeot RCZ and sang at the Peugeot showroom in Athaiba when the car was unveiled to the public for the very first time in Oman.

Since its launch in Europe, the car has won rave reviews around the world for its innovative styling and looks that have captured the imagination of drivers around the world who have relished its combination of stunning looks, elegant interior and powerful sports-driven driving experience.

Featuring a powerful Turbo 156 hp engine, 6 speed automatic gear box, 18 inch alloy wheels, sports car style front seats, carbon fibre roof, mobile rear wing feature, space for two back seat passengers and a unique double bubble roof – the new Peugeot RCZ is a sensational achievement in modern automotive design and engineering that is uniquely French in its styling and approach.

European Motors, part of the Zubair Automotive Group, is the sole distributor of Peugeot in Oman and General Manager Bob Seshadri said: “We are delighted to be introducing this fantastic car to Oman – which is one of the most original and unique sports coupes ever developed in the world and among the most distinctive designs that Peugeot has ever created.

“We believed that a car of such celebrity stature needed a status conscious celebrity to launch it in the Sultanate and we are delighted that Salah Al Zadjali was able to provide his endorsement and support for this amazing car.  Salah recognises the amazing chic styling that goes into the RCZ and has loved the time he has already managed to spend behind the wheel.

“I am confident that the style conscious Omani public will be eager to test drive and then own the new RCZ that is set to turn heads on roads all over the country once this great new Peugeot starts to appear on the streets.”

The Peugeot RCZ has convinced motoring critics around the world about its benefits since the car was launched – including the world’s most popular and watched television motoring show – Top Gear.

When Top Gear reviewed the Peugeot RCZ they said: “The RCZ is one of a handful of cars that have the visual impact of something four or five times the price.  It looks like a proper show car oozing with improbably, even impossible, design ideas like the double bubble roof that runs seamlessly into the curved rear window.  This car is a stunner.”

Commenting on his participation at the launch event and endorsement of the new car, Salah Al Zadjali said he was delighted to have been given the chance to support the introduction of such a unique and good looking car to the Sultanate.

“Peugeot has always designed and produced great looking cars that match French style and sophistication with quality European engineering and I have loved already having had a short opportunity to experience this car behind the wheel. 

“It is a fantastic achievement by Peugeot and I have no doubt that it will prove hugely popular here in Oman where all of us love our cars so much – and how they look as much as what happens under the bonnet,” said Salah Al Zadjali.
