The Paykan. Only in Iran. I saw a brochure for it once when I was visting Iran. The safety highlights were... and I shit you not... "Seatbelts, four brakes, windshield wipers, side mirrors".... I was like, HAHA... Anyway, specs...


Engine Model : X1
Displacement : 1598 cm3
Number of cylinder : 4
Bore x Stroke : 87.3 x 66.7 mm
Compression ratio : 7.8
Fuel supply system : Injection MPFI
Maximum speed : 137 kph
Maximum power : 67 HP at 5000 rpm
Maximum torque : 104 Nm at 3750 rpm

SUSPENSION
Front : Macpherson Independent - coil spring
Rear : Leaf spring

Front brakes : Hydraulic disc
Rear brakes : Hydraulic drum

This garbage is coupled to a 4-spd gearbox. Weighs about 2100lbs. Rides on 13" wheels. Here's the interior specs from the catalogue...

Water temperature warning light/indicator
Heating/venting with fan and rheostat
Fuel low level warning light
Dipped beams warning light
Front brake pad wear warning light
Separate front seat with reclining backrest
Engine oil pressure warning light
Headrests on front seats
Radio cassette without CD player
Front grab handle
Battery charging light
Rear grab handle
Trip recorder
Tachometer

SAFETY
---------

Hydraulic disc front brakes
Hydraulic drum rear brakes
Front brake pad wear warning light
Child safety latch on rear doors
Dipping interior rear view mirror

I'm impressed, even hte paseo doesn't have front brake pad wear warning light. Didn't even know such a thing existed.

Wow, such luxury such as the 'FRONT GRAB HANDLE' and a Radio/Cassette and just incae we get confused it mentions the lack of a CD player. And the indicator lights... WOW! BTW, this car was being made with these exact specs up until mid-2004. Then Peugeot came in and started marketing decent cars in Iran. Now for some pics...










A-yup. The difference between a '67 Paykan and a '04 Paykan? I have no idea. Besides some 'smoother body panels'.
