Lela S. Storey. Peugeot. May 16th , 2017.
Assuming the 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport, the French brand engineers have developed a variant of competition will be officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The result of this work is the Peugeot 308 Racing Cup, which know below.
The Peugeot 308 anticipates Racing Cup racing version aimed at demanding customers who want to compete in privately resistance categories. Equipped with the same base engine 1.6 GTi THP 308, the Racing Cup develops 308 hp at an early stage of development, that is, 38 more than the street version, also developed by Peugeot Sport.
To use larger wheels, flared fenders features that provide more robust dimensions, especially in width dimension, extended up to 1,910 mm (106 mm more than the 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport).
The spoiler designed to increase the support of the back, is directly inspired by the WTCC regulations. The front and rear bumpers and front backsheet are specific, and also an important aerodynamic improvement, provide a more prominent look. The aesthetics of the model is complemented with specific 18 "wheels, shod with slicks or rain tires (27/65).
The 1.6 THP directly derived from that used in the GTi. Vélizy engineers have sought to improve engine performance by adopting some elements of competition. So, thanks to the 208 T16 turbo, the 308 Cup Racing has achieved the figure of 308 hp. Further development could allow even higher offer new values.
It also takes up many of the specific elements of the frame of his "brother street" such as suspension pivots and rear cross. Instead, to suit competition, engineers have chosen to assemble specific parts such as brakes, for example, six-piston calipers.
The gearbox has, meanwhile, six-speed sequential control with steering wheel paddles. The weight has also been included among the priorities. The 308 Racing Cup will be content: between 1,000 and 1,050 kg.
It will be available in late 2016 for customers around the world. It will replace the RCZ Racing Cup both in the context of promotion formulas as in the touring car as VLN (Germany), CER (Spain), the CITE (Italy), BGDC (Belgium) and even in endurance events as the "24H series."
It will be presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show from 17 to 27 September. Outbreak of living will go straight into action and show both its forms and its performance in its first track test at the Paul Ricard (France) on 24 and 25 October when participating in an exhibition to mark the end of GT Tour.
