The Peugeot EXALT sedan is a concept car with a distinctly bare steel exterior and a grainy trim that Peugeot dubs 'Shark Skin.' The car's exterior is unique and eye-catching due to the fact that it doesn't have special edition custom paint colors or complex paint applications, but is swathed in bare industrial steel beaten into a shape by a master panel-beater.
The steel extends back over the car's long hood, up its windshield and over its roof. The steel then gives way to the earthy-red 'Shark Skin' material. Peugeot hasn't revealed exactly what the material is, only revealing that it enhances the vehicle's aerodynamic performance. The red Shark Skin material gives the car a beautiful two-tone look for a truly unique appearance.
