Peugeot 208 R2

Peugeot is now ready for action as it finished developing the new 208 R2. Under the hood it hides a 1.6-liter engine capable of developing 185 horsepower and 140 lb. ft. of torque. All the output is being sent to the wheels through a 5-speed sequential transmission. In comparison with the 207 R2, this new model is 40 kilograms lighter. The new transmission is lighter and it is capable of quicker shifts as the shifter is mounted on the steering column. The suspension has three-way adjustable bumpers. The carmaker will present it for the first time in a few days at the Tour de Corse. The starting price of the kit is EUR37.500 and the turnkey model has a starting price of EUR57.500.
