I have just spent two days in Auckland with the Peugeot importers, Sime
Darby, to test the new 407 which was launched here last week. I was in great
company with the motoring journalists of NZ & we had a free time to "work"
the cars over twisty seal and gravel as well as be well looked after by our
hosts after hours.

We had the V6 6 speed auto & the 2.2 6 speed manual & they proved to be very
exciting indeed in performance, looks and innovation. This was followed next
day as guests of the Auckland agents for further launch hype!!
