Peugeot will unveil at the Geneva Motor Show the 308 GT THP, a model powered by a 1.6 liter turbo-charged THP 175 bhp petrol engine, previously found in the 207 GTi THP 175. The engine will be mated by a new 6-speed manual gearbox.
Designed in co-operation with the BMW Group, the 1.6 liter turbo-charged petrol engine develops a maximum power of 175 bhp at 6000 rpm but is characterised mainly by its generous torque output. With a maximum torque output of 180 lb ft (or 195 lb ft with overboost) at only 1600 rpm, the engine provides excellent in-gear acceleration and levels of driveability normally associated with a larger capacity engine.
Launched commercially in Europe during the last quarter of the year, the Peugeot 308 has already exceeded the first target of 100,000 vehicles produced. This phase coincides with the market introduction of the «three-door» hatch versions and the economically attractive engines, in particular the 1.6 l HDi with emissions of no more than 120 g of CO2/km.
When Peugeot announced the 308 RC Z Concept that will be official revealed in Frankfurt just in few days, everyone asked: "Is really Peugeot ready to launch a model that will compete with the Audi TT?" Well, it seems that yes, as the newly concept is to see production in 2009.
The 308 will be Peugeot’s fi rst vehicle with HDi hybrid technology to be marketed before the end of the decade. This vehicle strengthens the environmental impact of the 308 range and provides concrete evidence of work carried out by Peugeot in this fi eld. This demonstrator features an original body colour (pearlescent white with green overtones), and special trim and equipment to differentiate it from the production hatchback models.
Launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 308 hatchback will shortly be commencing its commercial career. During this international event, another body style from the “T7” project will also be unveiled, in part, in the form of the 308 SW Prologue concept car.
