To commemorate the release of the PlayStation Gran Turismo Sport video game in mid-October, Peugeot and Peugeot Sport is unleashing the new, sleeker, sportier version of the Vision Gran Turismo, the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo. The latest Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo shares plenty of extreme, purebred sentiments with the existing L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo.
With their carbon-fiber monocoque structure, both the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo and the L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo were designed with the rigors of competitive racing in mind. For the driver, this radical new version of the car promises hitherto unknown sensations.
Ever striving for greater efficiency, Peugeot equipped the L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo with an internal-combustion engine and an electric motor. The petrol engine produces 580 horsepower and a top engine speed of 10,000 rpm. That is backed up by a 170-horsepower electric motor, giving the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo a total of 750 horsepower. The electric motor is powered by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. The sequential 7-speed gearbox is cutting-edge technology from the world of racing. The entire engine and transmission assembly is mounted on the rear axle.
With its dual-circuit hydraulic braking system and four ventilated carbon discs, independent front and rear suspensions varying the ride height according to the car’s speed, and forged-magnesium wheels, the Peugeot L 750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo was designed to be as light and aerodynamic as possible to deliver outstanding performance. At a gross weight of just 825 kg, 175 kg lighter than the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid, the L750 R gets from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds.
Whichever one you choose, both of these racing machines are perfectly suited to the 17 locations and many tracks available in the Gran Turismo Sport video game. Hurry, take the wheel of the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo or the L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo —and customize it in your colors…
