The French automaker has revealed a set of photos and preliminary info referring to their Peugeot 90X, which is a new prototype developed in parallel with the 2010 Peugeot 908 HDi FAP race programme.
The Peugeot 90X represents the company’s new endurance challenger for 2011, which until now was kept as a secret at the Belizy plant near Paris.
The Peugeot 90X is still a long way from being ready, so here is what we know about it so far. It complies with the ACO 2011 regulations, it incorporates the extra ‘shark fin’ on the engine cover which prevents the car from going airborne in case of a high-speed spin, and its closed cockpit design meets the mandatory 900 Kg weight requirement.
As far the engine powering the Peugeot 90X, Bruno Famin, Technical Director or Peugeot Sport said that "Work on the engine’s development is ongoing. Endurance racing is an
ideal proving ground to provide us with the opportunity to showcase all
the brand’s technologies."
