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.
