Peugeot is back in the Le Mans 24 Hours, and they’re looking to make a big splash. The French automaker has unveiled its new 9X8 Hypercar, which is powered by a 2.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine and a 200kW (268bhp) electric motor. The 9X8 is a striking car, with its sleek lines and aggressive stance. It’s also a very fast car, with a top speed of over 290mph.
Peugeot is hoping that the 9X8 will help them win their first Le Mans 24 Hours since 1993. The team has a strong driver lineup, including Kevin Magnussen, Paul di Resta, and Jean-Eric Vergne. They’ve also been testing the 9X8 extensively, and they seem to be very happy with its performance.
The 2023 Le Mans 24 Hours will be held on June 11-12. It’s going to be an exciting race, and Peugeot will be one of the teams to watch.
