Peugeot has pulled the wraps from its latest concept, following the 'accidental' leak that saw a telling preview appear online early this week.

Dubbed 'Exalt', the sleek new show-car is destined to make its world premiere at this month's Beijing Auto Show.

The muscular four-door Exalt draws its DNA from the powerful Onyx coupe revealed at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, while pulling the concept closer to a showroom-friendly design.

Powering the low-slung Exalt is Peugeot Citroen’s Hybrid4 system, pairing a highly tuned 201kW/330Nm 1.6 litre petrol engine with an electric motor for a combined 253kW.

Power is sent to the concept's all-wheel-drive system through a six-speed auto.

Peugeot hasn't offered performance figures for the Exalt, but with a kerb weight of around 1700kg, it's no supercar.

As for its 'raw steel' look, Peugeot says the Exalt’s finish is actually the result of a textile material, dubbed ‘Shark Skin’, inspired by the flesh of those ocean-going hunters.

Can we expect to see the Exalt in production? There is little about this design that would not easily translate to the road, but for now, Peugeot has yet to confirm plans.

Still, this may yet be an early preview of a next-generation 407 - although, under Peugeot’s new naming structure, it would wear the badge of the decidedly less impressive Chinese-market 408. (Perhaps a different name all together, then… - Ed.)
