PGO Hemera

At the Paris Motor Show French automaker PGO has presented Hemera, a compact and lightweight shooting-brake. It is powered by a 2 liter engine and will be available from 2009.

PGO Hemera - RenderingThe Hemera is the third model in the PGO’s line-up which includes the Speedster II and the Cevennes.

The Hemera has the same mechanical layout with a mid-mounted Peugeot engine and a 5 speed manual gearbox.

The structure consists of a tubular frame and a composite moulded body shell.

The design is a mix of shooting-brake proportions and styling elements inspired by classic coupés such as the Porsche 356.

Among the design highlights is the original glass bubble.

Performance figures are a top speed of 200 km/h and a 0-100 km/h sprint in less than 7 seconds, achieved thanks to its weight of just 980 kg.
