SCOOP! - Reader photographs Peugeot 207 Pick-Up (based on the 206) in Brazil

Last February the reader Bruno Francisco da Silva sent us a very nice picture of the future Peugeot 207 Pick-Up, the first car-based small pick-up truck from the French automaker. Although it is called 207, it is, in fact, a 206 with a 207 face, a car that will be called 206+ in Europe. And so should it have been called in Brazil, also, but that's another story... Now the reader Vinicius Davoli Rossi has sent us more pictures and they present us to details we had not been able to spot before. Check them out with us.

"I was filling up my gas tank and the pick-up parked beside me to refuel, too. I grabbed my cell phone and took these pictures", said Rossi.

With the same suspension used for 207 Escapade, a sort of a crossover version of 206 SW, the new 207 Pick-Up is currently under development, as you can see by the heavy disguise, and it will be presented by the end of 2009. Exports are certain, or else, this vehicle will also be sold in most South American markets. Besides the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre flexfuel engines, it will also offer two diesel options, a 70 bhp 1.9-litre and a 90 bhp 2-litre. According to Rossi, it resembles a lot Chevrolet Montana, known in other South American markets as Tornado.

If you manage to find and photograph a new car running around, disguised or not, and want to share you finding with us, do not hesitate to contact us andsend us your pictures. Please do not forget to authorise us to publish them. We will be glad to share them with our other readers, as we have done with Rossi's picture!
