PGO Cevennes

The combination of suggestive lines and appealing colors makes the Cevennes the model of seduction. The interior, at the image of its owner who would have chosen its colors and elaborated conception combining artisanal "savoir-faire" and high technology, creates a true source of emotion and pleasure. Taking the wheel of this neo-retro roadster is an invitation to discover sensations that come from the harmonious distribution between reconstructed past and assumed modernity.
