After leaks official photos in the early morning, the Lion brand has decided to formalize its new prototype. On the occasion of the German Biennial, the tricolor manufacturer will therefore have a spicier and more radical version of the new generation of its compact sedan, but as a concept.
As we have discovered earlier this morning, the 308 R Concept is characterized by an aggressive and sporty silhouette thanks to the new body parts. Besides the roof and tailgate original doors, front fenders, side skirts and also the bonnet and the front and rear are made of carbon fiber.
If the prototype retains the floating grille design signature of new Peugeot models, it takes a checkerboard pattern like that of the 208 GTi.
The way they are extended by 30 mm per side while the car is lowered by 26 mm compared to the standard model. The aggressive and sporty look of the car is enhanced by the dual exhaust in the back but also the 19-inch wheels including the brand logo in Chrome Dark blue.
This sportsmanship is also found on board with the Peugeot i-Cockpit. This installs the driver can more conveniently and it has a combined high position facing his eyes. A 9.7-inch touchscreen also finds its place on board and allows you to group all orders.
Announced for only 1280 kg, RCZR and has a weight / / power ratio of just 4.7 kg hp allowing it to claim a maximum speed of 250km / h (limited) and a 0 to a 100 km / h made 5.9 sec. According to Peugeot, the 400 m standing start in 14.2 s would be slaughtered and 1000 m in 25 sec.
By grafting an engine, as explosive on the new 308, Peugeot clearly shows its intentions: the new Golf R only has to behave. Far from being a simple exercise, the 308R has an impressive level of achievement. And specific body parts that distinguish 308R Concept mere 308 are the best. Peugeot also that the specific elements of this “R” said are not reported but completely integrated.
“Made in carbon, doors, front fenders, side skirts and the hood and front and rear bumpers are attached to the metal structure that retains only the roof and the tailgate of origin,” says Peugeot. Lowest 26 mm, with channels widened by 60 mm this 308R Concept imposes as well as the RCZR. We expect that the level of performance coupe will also be present on the 308 sedan.
More radical version, the 308 R Concept gets under the hood of the engine RCZ R. We thus find the 1.6 THP developing a total output of 270 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque combined with a manual gearbox with six reports.
If the R 308 is shown as a concept in Frankfurt, there is great chance that the production model is unveiled next year.
