    Default Saw a 407 Today

    I saw my first 407 Peugeot today. Was going to Stockholm in a taxi from the airport and it went past us. It looks ok. Despite all the reviews i think it actually looks a little(personal opinion) like the front of the next ferrari. Was a silver one and it certanily stands out. The badges on the front of cars seem to be getting bugger. VW badges are huge but the one on the front of the 407 is quite big.
    OK im getting pickie

    I think they are designed by the same guy, Pininfarina. That's why they look the same

    Nope, Pininfarina has had any say in Peugeot's design since the 306 and 406 Coupe.

    i've tried to reserve my judgements on the 407 on a visual level until i see it in the flesh, i think its one of those cars where photos just don't do the car justice & you have to see it in the flesh

    I have seen quite a few in Auckland already.

    I really like it.

    Whilst I love the 406, it was in some ways a bit anonymous on the road. The 407 has serious road presence.

    Default 407

    Also seen a couple down here in Hamilton Louis That mouth certainly looks aggressive as it comes towards you !! Nice appearance though.

    I saw a 407 wagon ( silver) in Sydney 6 - 8 weeks ago.. It was driving down Macquarie Street. It looked terrific. slightly aggressive from the front, stylish and refined from the side/rear.

    Unfortunately I probably wont be able to afford one until about 2030 when they're well and truely second hand prices...

    Pininfarina design stunning cars like Ferraris and 406 Coupe and 405 and 205. Not lunch looseners like the 407.
