On May 30, 1916, the Peugeot L45 piloted by Dario Resta won the legendary Indianapolis 500 at an average speed of 135 km / h. One hundred years later, the French brand celebrated that Indianapolis victory with the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo.
Coinciding with the commercial launch of the new Gran Turismo Sport video game on PlayStation 4, which will take place on October 18, Peugeot and Peugeot Sport present a new version of this car, more elegant and sporty: the Peugeot L 750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo.
The Peugeot L750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo, the elegant and radical version of the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo, offers a novel racing experience behind the wheel. Both models, fused with the road, incorporate the stylistic codes of the Peugeot brand.

Like the Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo, the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo has been designed with the demands of motor racing in mind by incorporating a carbon fiber monocoque structure. It promises to bring unprecedented driving sensations to its pilot.
In a permanent search for efficiency, the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo is equipped with a thermal motorization linked to an electric motor. The heat engine develops 580 hp at a maximum speed of 10.000 rpm. It is supported by a 170 hp electric motor that allows it to have a power of 750 hp.
It is powered by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. While the gearbox, arising from the latest racing technologies, is 7-speed sequential. The powertrain assembly is located on the rear axle.
With its dual hydraulic circuit braking system and its four ventilated carbon discs, its variable suspensions that modulate the height of the body depending on the speed and its forged magnesium wheels, the Peugeot L 750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo has been designed to be as aerodynamic and lightweight as possible, to offer unmatched performance.
With its 875 kg, 175 kg less than the Peugeot L 500 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo, it goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 2,4 s. It is worth noting that both vehicles know how to adapt to the 17 scenarios and multiple tracks available in the Gran Turismo Sport game.[sam_pro id = 1_20 codes = ”true”]
