2016 Peugeot L500 R Hybrid: A Tribute to Brand’s Racing Exploits — The new concept on 2016 Peugeot L500 R Hybrid is going to be launched as a tribute to brand’s racing exploits dating on 20th-century race. The new sports sedan is reported to receive serious planning and concept, offering entirely new things to drivers. Here is the full update on it.
Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Specifications
Powertrain, Engine, Top speed
A plug-in hybrid powertrain will empower the new Peugeot L500 R HYbrid sports sedan. The system uses a petrol engine that generates around 266 hp of power output. The engine will be enhanced with two electric motors, and each one is placed on each axle. The whole powertrain is capable of generating around 493 hp of power output with 538 lb-ft of torque performance. In such setting, it is apparently driven by all-wheel drive configuration, and it is most probably paired with an automatic transmission. This engine is estimated to run the car to 62 mph within only 2.5 half seconds, which is crazy fast on current standard.
Exterior, Features and Interior
The exterior look adopts the signature design on race cars, which is sloppy, sleek, with the long hood and short tail, low ground clearance, and low cabin height. However, the entire looks are more like a future car, with that single panel body impression, smooth curve and rather boxy shapes, and blue-black paint.
The headlights are unseen or camouflaged somehow by the looks, and the front lips are made of carbon fiber to down-force the car front end. It is reported to 1 meters long with only 1,000 kg of weight. This detail ensures the fast running of the car. The Peugeot L500 R HYbrid interior is futuristic with single seat made in the sporty design, which doesn’t look comfortable. Peugeot calls it the Holographic iCockpit with more protections for the driver.
This car is specially designed for a race car, so comfort is the last thing they can think about. No doubt, driving system, and safety features are highly advanced too.
Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Release Date and Price
Peugeot didn’t specify their launching plan for the race car, but it seems like sooner than we thought. Peugeot L500 R HYbrid concept Price remains unspecified so far, but it shouldn’t surprise you if it this high notes.
This sports sedan has an excellent futuristic concept and wild design on the exterior and interior too. The hybrid technology is advanced as well. However, it doesn’t look like a comfortable car, and the design is too far from today’s likes. Without certainty, if future race car will be like this, 2016 Peugeot L500 R Hybrid is going to face a tough time, though.
