Introduction

When the Peugeot 406 coupe was new I came out of a shop to find an Italian staring at my test car enraptured. He said it was the most beautiful car he had ever seen, and when I told him it was built in Italy his heart swelled with pride.

The 407 coupe isn't designed by Pininfarina, nor built in Italy. It was shaped in-house by a team now based at Velizy near Paris, and is built on a separate line of the 407 factory at Rennes. It shares the long front overhang of the 407 saloon, balanced by a long rear overhang and looks better from some angles than others. Front three-quarters, rear and rear three-quarters and side-overhead all look stunning. Fill in the gaps for yourself.

Because it's longer and lower than the 407, with no hatchback, Peugeot engineers have managed to make it even stiffer, which is always a good start. Add the 407's excellent front and rear suspension and you have the makings of a fine riding, fine handling coupe that justifies its twenty-two to thirty-one grand touring price-tag.
