The Peugeot 908 Hybrid4 – The Fastest Hybrid Race Car in the World!
After months of speculations and tests Peugeot finally confirmed that Peugeot 908 Hybrid4 will be used in test for this year Len Mans on 24th April 2011. Car may not race, but for sure will be ready till next race – Le Mans 2012.
Peugeot’s regenerative breaking system will bring in boost of 80 hp and depend on lithium-ion batteries. This is similar to the first generation Zytek hybrid, utilizing a battery storage system instead of a flywheel-based unit which Porsche implemented in their race car 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Additional fuel saving will be achieved by using electric-only mode in the pit-lane, which is under ACO rules, and Peugeot 908 Hybrid4 will bank on it. Main power unit will be all-new 550-horsepower 3.7-liter V8 turbodiesel.
Beautiful hybrid car with powerful diesel engine. Unmistakable that is Peugeout. And another win for French car industry and their eco-friendly approcach to fast cars. Just a few days ago we announced new coupe – The Exagon Furtive eGT – another French super sexy and super fast electric sport car. Vive La France!
