Best of Show
The 2013 Best of Show WebAward is presented to BETC Paris for their exceptional work on Peugeot RCZ Test Driver. The site was also recognized as Best Automobile Website. This engaging website is the second part of the launch of Peugeot's new sports car RCZ. One of the scientists wants to take the RCZ for a midnight test drive. He gets chased through the streets by security guards and it is up to the user to configure the car so he can hide and escape. To get the full experience, connect with your smart phone and control the experience remotely. The driver will text you when he needs help and you can change the look of the car with your phone to help him get away.
