Air-ride 607

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

If there's one thing the French are great at, it's building big cars that nobody buys. The Citroën C6, the XM, the Renault Safrane and Vel Satis, they're all notable by their absence from today's roads - and that also goes for the Peugeot 607. Which is what makes it such a great base for a project car - aside from being cheap-as-frites as a second-hand buy, you also have the fun of rolling into a showground and making everyone scratch their heads in bewilderment.
This Belgian 607 flies the flag for Kean Suspensions, the prolific air-ride perverts who live for laying cars' sills onto tarmac. It wears Work wheels - not all that easy to get hold of in Europe - and features the trademark smoothing and simplifying that charcaterises the Belgian tuning scene. That naughty side-rear exit exhaust is a brilliant touch too.
...and that's not all! Click here, and you'll see that the car's now matt black and rocking BBS rims. Evolution, innit.
