2011 PEUGEOT 908 LMP1

The French manufacturer confirmed it will continue to use the 3700cc V8 Turbocharged Diesel unit despite previously showing the Hybrid in the past. New regulations require a reduction on power for 2011 so aerodynamics are proving crucial in development. Its no surprise Peugeot have retained the Coupe layout.

French car maker Peugeot has revealed its contender for this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours. This latest generation 908 is a new model, which was known as the 90X during its development. It switches from a V12 turbodiesel powerplant to a V8 with a 90-degree angle and 542bhp.
