New Peugeot 508 Flagship Sedan Snagged Undisguised During Filming?

A photograph of an undisguised 2011 Peugeot 508 sedan (or at least that's the most likely badge), allegedly captured during the filming of a promotional clip somewhere in Madrid, Spain, has been making the internet rounds today.
If it's the real deal, then it appears that Peugeot's designers have toned down the styling a little compared to the near-production concept model, called the "5 by Peugeot", that was showcased in Geneva earlier this year (see here).
The new 508 will replace both the mid-size 407 and premium 607 sedans, taking a flagship role in Peugeot's vehicle range. The concept model measured 4,860mm in length, 1,880mm in width and 2,815mm in wheelbase, meaning it was 42mm shorter than the 607 but 168mm longer than the 407 sedan.
We'll most likely see the production model getting its world debut at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show this fall, with European sales of the sedan to start next year.
