    Paris 2006: Peugeot 908 RC Concept











    ...
    Engine and architecture

    The 908 RC is powered by Peugeot's V12 HDi DPFS (diesel particulate filter system) diesel engine designed to take part in the "Le Mans Race Series" programme in 2007.

    The engine has a capacity of 5.5-litres and offers a level of performance unprecedented for a diesel engine, with a maximum power output greater than 700bhp and, above all, an exceptional torque in excess of 1200Nm (885lbf ft). With a 100° V angle architecture, the engine's centre of gravity is as low as possible. Two particulate filters are located at the end of each exhaust system ensuring the car's environmentally-friendly credentials.

    The originality of the 908 RC resides in its compact design, with the engine arranged in a rear central transverse position. Similarly the compact 6-speed electronically controlled sequential gearbox has been specially adapted to withstand the phenomenal torque, and is located under the engine.

    The position of the power train allows the creation of a large-capacity boot, situated behind the final drive assembly and therefore not encroaching on the generous interior space of the passenger compartment. This design also allows the driving position to be moved forward, maximising the driving experience for both the driver and the passengers.

    If it doesn't come with a bottle of champagne I'm not interested.

    Very impressive concept car. I love it!

    700 Bhp and 885 Ibs/ft of torque WOW! Truly amazing figures. And all that power from a V12 Turbodiesel, so that means not only it will be very fast but also will be economical and eco-friendly.

    It probably won't redefine the luxury automobile, specially when you have the Germans around...but this car manages a trick that only the French are able to do. It manages to be quirky, innovative and rather handsome all at the same time.

    I hope they put it in production.

    I remember (when I was in Malta) seeing some Rear/Mid Engine Sedans, however I forgot their names. They seemed a bit old (maybe 80's to 90's).
