PEUGEOT AND PEUGEOT SPORT REVEAL EVEN SPORTIER L750 R HYBRID VISION GRAN TURISMO

Monday, 9 October 2017

  • Sportier PEUGEOT L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo developed for competitive racing
  • Performance car boasts a total 750hp and goes from 0-100km/h in just 2.4 seconds
  • Unveiling marks the release of latest Gran Turismo Sport racing game

PEUGEOT and PEUGEOT SPORT have combined to deliver the latest concept in performance vehicles of the future, with its sleek L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo.

A year on from revealing the PEUGEOT L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo, the L750 R presents an evolution of one of PEUGEOT’s most innovative projects, delivering even greater performance, and showcasing PEUGEOT’s new design language.

The all-new concept car, which has been launched alongside the release of the latest PlayStation®4 Gran Turismo Sport video game, features a cutting-edge hybrid design that benefits from PEUGEOT and PEUGEOT SPORT’s renowned performance credentials and ultra-efficient engine designs.

Taking every measure to balance performance and efficiency, the PEUGEOT L 750 R is equipped with both a petrol engine capable of delivering 580 Ps and 10,000rpm, and a 170-Ps electric motor, giving the car a potent 750 Ps in total.

An innovative dual-circuit hydraulic braking system and four ventilated carbon discs, independent front and rear suspensions which vary the ride height according to the car’s speed, and forged-magnesium wheels, all combine to make the PEUGEOT L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo as light and aerodynamic as possible.

A carbon-fibre structure means the L750 R weighs in at just 825 kg – 175 kg lighter than its predecessor – the performance hybrid was developed with competitive racing in mind.

Available to drive in the Playstation®4 exclusive Gran Turismo Sport video game, readers can take the wheel of the PEUGEOT L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo or the PEUGEOT L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo in-game and compete in a 24-hour distance race on Twitter.

Join or watch the competition by visiting PEUGEOT’s twitter account at 12pm on 9 October: https://twitter.com/Peugeot
