The 308 R Hybrid certainly doesn’t look like the standard car. A wider track makes it look like it’s hunkering down on the road and this is enhanced by louvres on the bonnet, a grille with a special chequered pattern, side scoops with LED indicators, plus a blue paint job that has been developed using fluorescent pigments and glass particles, which suddenly morphs into matt black at the rear.
