PGO Hemera, the small French shooting brake

The French automaker PGO has never been very original in its designs, clearly inspired by classic Porsche models, such as 356. The first attempt to create a design of its own is what you can seen below. Called Hemera, the vehicle is still very similar to a Porsche 356, and the original part of it will certainly divide opinions.

What will surely be unanimous is the praising about its performance. After all, the 3.75 m long, 1,68 m wide and 1.30 m tall shooting brake, with a wheelbase of 2.26 m, can reach up to 200 km/h and a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in around 7 s due to its low kerb weight, only 980 kg.

Equipped with a front mid-mounted 2-litre Peugeot engine able to generate 140 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 195 Nm at 3,000 rpm, Hemera can use a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic gearbox.

According to the car’s brochure, it uses McPherson suspension in all four wheels, including the rear ones. No word is said on traction, but the car must be a rear-wheel drive one in order to be as sporty as it seems. Base price is 33,333 euros.
