Peugeot RCZ 2019

The Peugeot RCZ was a compact coupé sold by the French manufacturer from 2010 to 2015. Based on the last-gen 308, it offered supercar looks for a family car price tag. My new version would continue in this tradition. It would go head-to-head with rivals like the Nissan Z and Audi TT, as well as some of my own creations; the VW Scirocco, Ford Capri, Honda Integra, and Hyundai Coupé.

Like the last model, the new RCZ's exterior design is dominated by its striking cab-forward stance and its Zagato-inspired "double bubble" roof. This generation of RCZ introduces sharper edges into the mix, with an angular front end and a razor-sharp rising waistline. The shiny 20" alloys and patriotic emblem on the front-wing vent are both optional extras.

Ferrari F8berlina

The F8berlina is my concept for a Ferrari super-saloon. The name follows the same naming scheme as the F12berlinetta. In this case the "F" stands for Ferrari, "8" is the number of cylinders, and the "berlina" suffix signifies that it is a four-door saloon. Ferrari have previously stated that they would never build such a car, but fortunately in the virtual world of TheSwageLine I'm not restricted by what the suits at Ferrari say - so a four-door Ferrari it is!

The F8berlina shares its 3.9l twin-turbo V8 with the 488 GTB supercar, although here it would be positioned at the front of the car, powering the rear wheels. This FR layout is observable in the proportions of the car, which are classic Ferrari GT. However, the F8berlina is far from retro, and the styling of the car is unmistakably 2010s. The front is low and shark-like, the rear taut and muscular. The blacked-out A-pillar creates a floating roof effect, and the brightwork which snakes along the bottom of the windows adds further interest to the car's appearance.
