The vehicle also wears the PB104 name, where PB stands for Peugeot and Bimota, “1” for project number one and 04 for four wheels. The exterior of the special edition features a distinctive Bimota three-color racing livery and black five-spoke alloy wheels. Inside the cabin there are Alcantara leather wrapped seats and dashboard with red accents, a leather wrapped box for two motorcycle helmets, replacing the rear seats, two GoPro cameras and a TomTom Bridge infotainment system with 7-inch display.
The 1.6-liter THP petrol turbo unit of the vehicle has been equipped with a new blow-off valve for the turbo, new exhaust system and a remapped ECU. Thanks to these improvements, the model now has 304 HP (224 kW), while the standard RCZ R comes with 273 HP (201 kW) at 6,000 rpm. The braking system has also been updated with new 4-piston 380 mm front brakes, while the suspension has been lowered with 10 mm.
