Peugeot Sport Engineered will become from now on the umbrella that will cover the most special, sporty and powerful cars in the range from the French manufacturer. The first model to use this denomination will be the 508, the medium saloon of the brand that already boasts an attractive and exclusive design that immediately attracts attention.
For now, the 508 Peugeot Sport Engineered has become the most powerful car in its history. His figures are quite illuminating of his possibilities, with 360 hp of power that are extracted from a plug-in hybrid motorization (with a heat engine combined with two other electric ones) which is becoming a very common set in its range. With this mechanic, the 508 manages to pass from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.2 seconds and notes an electronically limited top speed of 250 km / h.
With Four-wheel drive, this very special version of the 508 includes a adaptive damping with three modes of operation that are called Comfort, Hybrid and Sport. Further, body-to-ground height has been lowered, widened tracks and brakes powered by 380mm diameter front discs and four-piston calipers. The wheels, meanwhile, are 20 inches. We also have the possibility to choose between five driving modes (Electric, Comfort, Hybrid, Sport and 4WD) to choose at all times the one that best suits our needs.
42 kilometers of electric autonomy
At the time of battery charging, to get a 42 kilometer full electric range according to the WLTP cycle, there are several options. In a domestic outlet it is charged in less than 7 hours, while if we use a fast charging point we will need two hours to perform this operation.
In addition to its four wheel drive, this version includes all the driving aids available in the range such as the night vision, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, lane-keeping aid or automatic emergency braking.
As you might expect, the 508 Peugeot Sport Engineered differs from other versions by mounting different exclusive accessories both outside and inside. Seen from the front, the grille, the bumper or the specific air intakes stand out, while the double exhaust outlets or the central diffuser in black stand out from behind. Inside, we must mention the leather and Alcantara upholstered seats or the powerful audio system that is also offered as standard.
At the moment, the brand has not revealed its price, but it is already known that the first orders can be placed at the end of next month.
