With a chassis derived from the Peugeot 205 Turbo 16, the Quasar was powered by a 4-cylinders 1.6 liters DOHC biturbo 16-valves unit equipped with an air-to-air intercooler.

The engine delivered 600 hp and a max torque of 50 kgm and was coupled to a all-wheel-drive transmission with 5-speed gearbox and traction control system. The suspension featured Formula 1-like double wishbones.

Like the other concept unveiled by Peugeot in 1984 – the Proxima – the Quasar featured many electronic controls: onscreen warning messages, a navigation system, videotex and night-driving enhancement. The audio system was supplied by Clarion.
