Peugeot Sport creates the 308 Racing Cup

Peugeot's new 308 Racing Cup is destined to compete in a single-make series, various national saloon car championships and one-off endurance races.

Power is provided by a 1.6 litre engine which should produce at least 303 bhp (226 kW / 308 PS) courtesy of an upgraded turbocharger taken from the 208 T16 Pikes Peak. That output is delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed sequential transmission.

The suspension is based on the road-going 308's, but the ride height, toe angle and camber have all been made adjustable for track use. Similarly, the braking system gains stronger six-piston calipers.

Visually, the most striking feature is a large rear wing that hangs off the back of the car. It's complemented by a bespoke front splitter, while 18” wheels nestle beneath noticeably widened arches.

Deliveries of the 308 Racing Cup to customer teams are due to begin at the end of 2016. Peugeot hasn't revealed what the price is likely to be, though.
