First revealed in 2005, the Peugeot 407 Coupe receives two new engines for the 2009MY: a V6 3.0 litre HDi PEF 241 bhp and 2.0 litre HDi PEF 163 bhp.

Peugeot 407 Coupe

The new V6 HDi PEF 3.0-litre engine, coupled with a 6-speed sequential automatic gearbox, develops a maximum power output of 241 bhp at 3,800 rpm supplemented by maximum torque of 450 Nm from 1,600 rpm - a value which remains unchanged up to 3,600 rpm. With this engine, the 407 Coupé becomes the most powerful production vehicle ever constructed by Peugeot in its 120 years history as a car manufacturer.

The new 2.0-litre HDi PEF 163 bhp at 3,750 rpm is coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox. With this power and a maximum torque of 340 Nm (constant between 2,000 and 3,000 rpm), this 4 cylinder engine is the perfect counterpart to the V6 HDi PEF and brings genuine appeal for its combined attributes in terms of purchase price, running costs and a top-of-the-range specification.

The engine is amted to a special five-speed manual gearbox with a higher final drive ratio than the standard 207 hatchback.

With red racing stripes and a double evacuation, the new Peugeot 107 GT Line wants to scare models like Renault Twingo RS, Abarth Abarth 500 or Swift Sport. But it has no chance, because under the exterior changes the small 107 keeps the same engine.

The model was created to celebrate the success at the 25 hours Le Mans race. But even if at a first looks the new model looks bad, it is just an old 107: a model powered by a 1,0 liter engine that delivers the same 68 hp.

So Peugeot when can we expect a Peugeot 205 GTi reincarnation?

Things didn’t turn out as well as Dr. Ulrich and the rest of Team Audi would have liked, but at least an R15 made it onto the podium. It was a sight to see all three Peugeot 908 s regroup for the final laps of the 24 hour race, in order for that oh so important photo finish after so many years of trying. Things didn’t turn out exactly as we predicted:

Like you saw in the video, a Peugeot 908 took the overall win as well as the LMP1 trophy.
In the smaller LMP2 category Team Essex’s Porsche RS Spyder took home first place in its category.
Johny O’Connel won his 4th 24 Hour Title behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Corvette
Risi Competizione taking the GT2 win for the second year in a row, in the same Ferrari F-430.

It is mid-June, the Nurburgring 24 has passed and the endurance race fans from around the world are gathering at the Circuit de la Sarthe in France. That is because this Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14 racing greats from around the world are competing in the 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans. The race twice around the clock includes vehicles from the ALMS as well as the LMS racing series which are made up of two classes of GT, production car based racers, and two classes of prototypes, this year’s race will include 20 of the big boy LMP1 machines all fighting each other as well as lapped traffic for an overall win.

The big battles lately have been between Audi’s and Peugeot’s endurance racing teams at these events. The German automaker is competing in their all new R15 racecar and Peugeot is bringing back their 908, except this time it has Formula 1 derived KERS. Reports from the racetrack say that the Audi camp has gotten a hold of some unfound speed from their previous entrant, the R10 . The four ringed automaker has an excellent track record at the epic endurance race, with an Audi engine winning every year since 2000. 2003 was the only year that an Audi R chassis didn’t take home the victory, that year Audi’s factory efforts lent their services to fellow members of the Volkswagen Volkswagen family, creating the Bentley Bentley Speed 8. Ever since 2006 Audi’s racing team has been taking advantage of the rules regarding diesel powered race cars, a trend that has caught on with Peugeot.

Peugeot 308 RC Z Coupe spied

The French automaker, Peugeot, will bring their own version of the Audi TT to the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. The production Peugeot 308 RC Z was caught working all the bugs out in testing, before the car’s official debut.

The design of the RCZ strongly reminds us of the concept as well as some of the familiar 308 design cues: like huge, sweptback headlights and the oversized front grille. The concept is powered by a twin-scroll turbocharged 1.6 Liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 218 HP. The production version will receive a naturally aspirated 1.6 Liter gas burning engine that will put out 120 HP; there will also be a 1.6 Liter turbocharged four banger as well as a complete range of turbo diesel power plants.
