Peugeot 9X8 Race Car. Wow!     

Before it rips up racetracks around the world Peugeot have put the 9X8 on the catwalk for leading fashion and supercar photographer Agnieszka Doroszewicz to shoot.

As Peugeot say, designing a race car is the ultimate dream of every automotive designer. So for the 9X8 Hybrid Hypercar, engineers and designers worked very closely together to achieve a convergence between style and technology to create a competition vehicle. “The level of discussion was absolutely unprecedented”, says Matthias Hossann, Peugeot Design Director. “We worked hand in hand with the Sport team.”

 They claim that the 9X8 is a radical departure from previous generations of racing cars.

We’re not sure about that, but the 9X8 remains ahead of many rivals with its V6 2.6-litre twin-turbocharged 500 kW (680 HP) internal combustion engine at the rear with a 200 kW (270 HP) electric motor/generator in the front.
