Peugeot 908 RC

  • Peugeot’s latest concept car to debut at the Paris Motor Show in September
  • Stylish four-door limousine combines power, comfort and green performance
  • Powered by a 5.5-litre V12 HDi DPFS engine mounted behind passengers

The raison d’être of any concept car is to explore new ideas and to test those ideas in an attempt to create the ultimate solution. Know-how and passion, combined with imagination then become the motive force that turns dreams into reality. The Peugeot 908 RC evokes passion and imagination to allow us to dream but it will also have a serious side.

The 908 RC owes its name to its engine: the Peugeot V12 HDi DPFS, which will power the racing version of the 908 in 2007. The abbreviation "RC", used to designate sports models in the Peugeot range in mainland Europe, also refers to the RC and RC concept cars which made their appearance in 2002 and whose architecture served as an inspiration during the design of this innovative project.

The original idea was to create a limousine with an imposing style that offered its four occupants a new driving sensation. The final design, however, is an uncompromising car that combines dynamic performance, comfort, luxury and environmental protection. In short, it is an exclusive four-door vehicle that will capture the imagination of both occupants and onlookers.
