The “308 GTi by Peugeot Play” offers drivers the ultimate cod, featuring a 1.6L THP S&S locomotive uncommitted in two versions-270 hp and 250 hp-with Torsen® limited-slip derivative, form tuning and Peugeot i Cockpit. Furthermore, the 1.6L THP S&S powerhouse is the nearly effective in its family, capping CO2 at 139 g/km, or 6.0 L/100km.

“Peugeot is lofty to add the 308 GTi by Peugeot Sportsman to its unchanging.

It packs a 1.6L THP S&S locomotive that comes in two versions: 184 kW (250 hp) and 200 kW (270 hp). The Euro6 Layover&Commencement powerhouse caps CO2 emissions at scarce 139 g/km (6.0 L/100 km).

The 308 GTi 270 sets a new platter for power-to-weight proportion in its section, at upright 4.46 kg per whole of h.p., and does 0-100 km/h in a simple 6.0 seconds, masking 1,000 metres from a standing beginning in 25.3 seconds.

The 308 GTi 270 is weaponed with Torsen® limited-slip derivative engineering and 19″ Carbone 19 alloys shodden with Michelin Swallow Sportsman tyres. It has 380 mm discs in the battlefront with red Peugeot Play calipers and 268 mm counterparts in the arse.

With availableness variable according to commonwealth, the 308 GTi 250 goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and covers 1,000 metres from a standing scratch in 25.6 seconds, thanks to a power-to-weight proportion of equitable 4.82 kg/hp.

    The six-speed manual transmittance has been beefed capable immerse the torsion of capable 330 Nm. The two shafts bear been shot-blasted and the gears hardened by carbonitriding. This thermochemical summons improves the parts’ power to defy depreciation by increasing their c and n contented. The axle has likewise been cut to meliorate quickening.

    Driver-adjusted frame, power-packed locomotive, randomness from the tailpipe, Peugeot i-Cockpit, Driver Athletics Ring, bucketful seating… It’s a exulting sidetrack! The car does 0-100 km/h in a simple 6.0 seconds, cover 1,000 m from a standing starting in 25.3 seconds.
