Peugeot revealed its all-new 9X8, a futuristic hypercar that will make its competitive debut in the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) in 2022, also known as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 2.6L V6 engine generating 680 hp, paired with a 268 hp electric motor drawing power from a 900-volt battery pack, mated to a seven-speed sequential transmission. Since FIA regulations only allow a maximum of 680 hp to be used at any time during the race, the combined 948 hp can only be used on the road.

What does 9X8 mean? Well, the “9” continues the series used by the manufacturer for its recent endurance racing cars, like Peugeot 905, while the “X” refers to the hypercar’s all-wheel drive technology and hybrid powertrain. Lastly, “8” is the suffix used for all of Peugeuto’s current model names, from the 208 and 2008, to the 308, 3008, 5008 and so forth.

Since the 9X8 is a PEUGEOT, the original sketch that steered our work portrayed a big cat ready to pounce, a stance which we have suggested by the slightly forward-tilting cockpit. The overall lines of the PEUGEOT 9X8 express the brand’s styling cues, while its sleek, racy, elegant forms inspire emotion and dynamism,” said Matthias HOSSANN, PEUGEOT Design Director.
