The Peugeot e-Legend was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2018. This ambitious project did confirm Peugeot could demonstrate that a fully electric car with acute style can be made. If the Peugeot e-Legend does have a familiar look, you would be correct, this concept was inspired by the classic Peugeot 504. A model that was in production from 1968 to 1983. There are still whispers today that this concept will possibly go into production, we hope that goal is achieved.
As for the model, it is quite striking in the flesh. The angular lines are somewhat refreshing, Tony Stark would be proud. There is so much detail that riddles the exterior it takes multiple experiences to grasp the designers intent in full. Paint work on our example is terrific and displays a unique shade of Silver with Brown hues it is definitely original. The rear window with the multiple point design frame and window surely wasn’t something easy to execute in scale, but OttOmobile does achieve satisfyingly results. And surprising this budget-friendly brand does it at less than 60 Euros.
The detail continues into the cockpit, even though this example is sealed. The retro look on the wood trimming and Blue interior are definitely pushing the boundary in terms of styling limits, but atlas is really all connects to reaffirm a terrific subject and model in 1:18 scale. And OttOmobile must know something, all 3000 units are sold out. If you can get your hands on one, it would make a perfect gift for any Peugeot fan this Christmas. Enjoy the pics!
Is it me or there are traces of superglue vapors visible on the body near the sideskirt in the close up photo of the front wheel? Also the close ups show a not so pleasant effect on the paint. It kind of looks like a orange peel in the metallic paint.
That said the real car was pretty impressive. Here in Italy Peugeot had a very nice ad running on TV for a short time. But it was made in such a way that it looked like this was an actual car available for sale. No hint at all that it was just a concept car.
No that is polishing wax leftover from the factory production line… You need to understand these are extreme close-ups with appliable bright lights too. From the naked eye, most if not all won’t be seen otherwise… The model is an excellent value for the end result, OttOmobile job well done!
I have this model and can confirm it is really well done for the price point. Great job Otto! The granular effect that can be seen on the close pictures is the silver metallic under the clear coat. On mine the clear coat finish is very smooth.
Good to know. Although, contrary to other models on these pages, those close shots weren’t doing any favours to this model.
To be honest with you, no one on the team has ever taken a photography class or truly understands the delicate processing of the image after the photo has been taken. This is no excuse, but we continue to improve on both fronts. If you look at our early reviews we’ve definitely made some strives.
I personally took a look at the sample again, a rare example that was discarded. It looks much better than our final images, though it not BBR refinement :)
Rest assured I didn’t mean to criticize anyone’s photography skills, at all. And I have no doubts that in real life that model would indeed look good. but it has some characteristics that don’t seem to make it look good, at least in close ups under spotlights. Well, at least to my eyes. Would be interesting to see a different model with a different silver paint in the same lighting conditions to see if it shows a similar grainy effect or not.
Not taken. Cheers.
Maybe it’s just that I’m more used to see model painted in metallic grey while that looks like a silver paint.
There’s a nice 1/43 produced too, for the Peugeot online shop , by Voxxi9.
Beware, though, over time, the blue of the seats tends to turn green. This is at least the case on my model.
