Peugeot 90X breaks cover

Peugeot Sport's principal mission accomplished
The 90X's technical characteristics
The 90X complies with the ACO's 2011 regulations, and notably incorporates a shark fin appendix on the engine cover. This new feature is designed to prevent the car from going airborne in the case of a high-speed spin. As it did for the 908 HDi FAP, Peugeot Sport has opted for a closed cockpit, while the car meets the mandatory 900kg weight requirement. "We are still exploring several options with regard to the engine and technology we will use," points out Bruno Famin, the Technical Director of Peugeot Sport. "Work on the engine's development is ongoing. Endurance racing is a proving ground that provides us with an opportunity to showcase all the brand's technologies."
