There were new models bursting out everywhere at the recent Shanghai Auto Show, so it’s easy to see how a low-volume carmaker like PGO could be overlooked.
But the small French carmaker was there, bringing with it its Cevennes roadster concept.
According to French website Auto News, the small carmaker has an eye on the Chinese market as it looks to expand its export program.
Just when you thought all the good car names had been taken, PGO came up with “Water Snake” for its (clearly) Porsche 356-inspired Cevennes.
The Water Snake is a mid-engine, two-seat roadster with a striking blue carbon exterior and predominantly white leather interior.
All PGO models have been powered by a 1.6 litre, four-cylinder turbo-charged BMW engine since 2012, making 135 kW of power and 240Nm of torque. All PGO’s are also fitted with a six-speed manual.
Above the regular Cevennes model, the Water Snake concept has 18 inch alloy wheels with semi-slick tyres (regular Cevennes only gets 17 inch wheels). The regular Cevennes weighs just 998Kg.
PGO has been making cars since 2000, but, sadly, the Water Snake is a concept only and not destined to join its line-up. We'd have one.
