Peugeot is back to Le Mans soon! The Lion brand will unveil its Hypercar this week.
As the 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans, postponed to the end of August because of Covid-19, are fast approaching, Peugeot will soon tell us more about its car for 2022. The Lion had announced his return to the queen race in 2020, announcing a Hypercar, the same category as Toyota, Glickenhaus, and later Ferrari. And we will soon know more about this extreme prototype!
On its Twitter account, Peugeot Sport posted a short video. This does not reveal much: “branded” optics as for the Peugeot range, a shark fin typical of Le Mans prototypes… But above all a date: the July 6 next. We should therefore be able to discover the Peugeot Hypercar in just a few days!
Peugeot will be back at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2022, and in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) at the same time. The brand will join Toyota, and the American Glickenhaus, before a comeback of big names in 2023: Porsche, Audi, and Ferrari!
If we do not yet know the final form of this Peugeot Hypercar, the brand has already unveiled many details on its future racing car. We know, for example, that it will be powered by a hybrid system, composed of a 2.6L twin-turbo V6 and an energy recovery system, for a total the 680 ch. A figure that owes nothing to chance, since it is the maximum authorized for the category by the ACO. The V6 is developed in-house by Peugeot Sport, while the hybrid system was designed in collaboration with Total.
See you on July 6 to discover everything about this French Hypercar!
