That Peugeot has the world of competition in its genetics is something obvious, and from what we are seeing in the last dates, does not cease to make creations intended for circuits.
Although for the moment does not embark on a specific competition, the creations carried out are of an impressive bill, receive applause from fans and even have advertising.
The last, the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision, was created specifically for the new Gran Turismo Sport, a video game for Play Station 4 that will be launched on October 18.
In fact, this model is a reinterpretation of the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo , a prototype that already presented the gala signature last year for the same saga of video games.
With it, he was looking to pay homage to the Peugeot L45 with which Dario Resta achieved the victory in the 1916 edition of the Indianapolis 500 , a triumph he achieved with an average speed of 135 km / h.
Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision, ready for everything
The new model enjoys a monocoque structure built in carbon fiber and a hybrid mechanic that delivers 750CV. This is the result of the combination of a 580 hp thermal engine that reaches 10,000 rpm and an electric motor that promises 170 hp, coupled to a sequential gearbox of 7 ratios. Its empty weight is reduced to only 825 kg (175 kg below the L500 R) and accelerates in the 0 to 100 km / h in only 2.4 seconds.
The good track is guaranteed by an independent suspension on each axle, four-wheel carbon hydraulic brakes and a well- studied aerodynamics . And best of all, is that all these conditions created them only to be represented as such in a virtual world.
The new video game comes with a host of new locations and tracks to test your qualities at the wheel of the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision, as well as the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision, created last year, and other models that have been created exclusively for this video game, such as the McLaren Ultimate Vision GT.
