Peugeot Sport presented a 908 HDi FAP equipped with a hybrid power plant at the final round of the 2008 Le Mans Series at Silverstone. Peugeot Sport profited from the final round of the 2008 Le Mans Series at Silverstone to unveil a 908 HDi FAP equipped with a hybrid power plant, featuring a kinetic energy recovery system. The 908HY was presented in a new, specific silver-grey livery and will provide a foretaste of what Peugeot's next endurance racing challenger could resemble, although its use will depend on the regulations that will govern LMP 1 cars from 2009. The 908 HDi FAP's "HY" technology enables a proportion of the kinetic energy produced under braking to be either recovered or stored. In the case of a non-hybrid car, this energy is lost and simply dissipated in the form of heat via the brakes. However, when harnessed, it enables the vehicle's efficiency to be improved in one of two ways: - Enhanced performance with no increase in the amount of energy consumed, thanks to the combination of the stored mechanical energy and the energy produced by the internal combustion engine - Reduced fuel consumption for the same level of performance, thanks to the availability of stored mechanical energy The system featured on this demonstrator comprises three key elements: 1) A 60 kW gear-driven electric motor-generator which takes the place of the conventional starter motor 2) Batteries which permit recovered energy to be stored in 600 lithium-ion cells divided into 10 battery packs (six in the cockpit instead of the conventional battery and four on the left-hand side of the floor pan) 3) An electronic power converter (located in the rear part of the front left wing) which controls the flow of energy between the batteries and the motor-generator [

I am looking forward to this racecar. It will provide an early look at what is possible for hybrid racecars. I am excited about Corsa Motorsport's Zytek hybrid for next season as well.

I don't know about the performance being horrible. I have a feeling it will be considerably fast. Peugeot and Zytek are onto something.

Looks like a racing boat... with wheels.

I like the design, but not the company. Best bet is to wait and hear about performance :D

aka : I'll believe it when I see it.
