Peugeot 308 TCR, racing beast: 350 horses

Peugeot 308 TCRthe track beast. This is the fireball, with the 1.6 turbo brought to 350 horsesfor the championships dedicated to “international tourism sedans”. That is the season WTCR. And the VLN (Germany), CER (Spain), CITE (Italy), BGDC (Belgium) and the endurance championships like the 24H Series and the TCR Italy.

This is evolution of the 308 Racing Cup , in turn derived from 308 GTi stradale. The opening of the orders took place on 3 January 2018 and the delivery of the first cars will take place in April. A catalog of technical options is also available.

The THP petrol engine was developed on the intake and exhaust. And the turbocharging allows the turbocharged 4-cylinder to develop 350 horsepower. With 420 Nm of torque from 3,000 rpm. It has a mileage potential of 5000 km or almost twice as much as necessary for a WTCR season

The Peugeot 308TCR has a specific 6-speed sequential gearbox with steering wheel levers. Thanks to a widening of the carriageways, to specific suspension tracks, to adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars and to suspension elements entirely on Uniball joints, it has a front axle with a strong potential in entry into the corners and a rear that reacts perfectly to the inputs of the rider

The possibilities of adjustments – height of the body, track, camber at both the front and rear – will allow to “sew” the car on the characteristics of the circuits. And on the needs of individual pilots.

Freni. At the front of 378 × 34 mm ventilated discs with 6-piston calipers. At the rear of 270 × 12 mm discs with 2-piston calipers.

Aerodynamics taken care of

In the frontalthe processed bumper bar allows to perfectly feed the air flows towards the radiator and the air / air exchanger. The splitter, on the other hand, generates maximum support, essential for good directional power. In the rearthe fascia ends on a large extractor responsible for generating the aerodynamic load on the rear axle.
