Indeed, the combination of driving excitement with environmentally-respectful performance of the very highest level is ingrained into the heart of the Peugeot brand identity. This commitment will now also be championed by the HYbrid4 technology which combines diesel and electric power, two areas in which the Brand has forged a solid reputation for excellence.
908 Hybrid4 Race Car 2012 Peugeot Sports CarsPeugeot’s regenerative breaking system will bring in boost of 80 hp and depend on lithium-ion batteries. This is similar to the first generation Zytek hybrid, utilizing a battery storage system instead of a flywheel-based unit which Porsche implemented in their race car 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Additional fuel saving will be achieved by using electric-only mode in the pit-lane, which is under ACO rules, and 908 Hybrid4 Race Car 2012 Peugeot Sports Cars will bank on it. Main power unit will be all-new 550-horsepower 3.7-liter V8 turbodiesel, backed up by a six-speed sequential gearbox.
908 Hybrid4 Race Car 2012 Peugeot Sports CarsThe system employed by the 908 Hybrid4 Race Car 2012 Peugeot Sports Cars recovers and stores the kinetic energy generated under braking, before feeding it back into the driveline during acceleration. Using this recovered energy in this way significantly improves the efficiency of the power-train.
908 Hybrid4 Race Car 2012 Peugeot Sports CarsThe system provides a short power boost of 60kW (80hp) for a few seconds when it is activated. Recovered energy (500kJ between two braking phases) is stored in lithium-ion batteries before being automatically released to power the rear wheels under acceleration (there is no "push to pass" function). It will also be possible to run in electric only mode along the pit-lane and it is this mode that will be used for the car's homologation.
908 Hybrid4 Race Car 2012 Peugeot Sports CarsBeautiful hybrid car with powerful diesel engine. Unmistakable that is Peugeot. And another win for French car industry and their eco-friendly approcach to fast cars.

This is expected not only be a badge-bad job, but it really gets amazing results. Mercury plans to create a concept car C-segment for the year 2012. Mercury took a few cars Focus sedan and five-door hatchback from the Detroit Auto Show and C C-Max and Grand C-Max minivans from the Frankfurt Auto Show. And one sister who will work on options is Lincoln Concept-C.
Play the word association game with an average American, and when the topic is "Lincoln," you're likely to hear words like "traditional," "big," and "limousine." Terms describing compact hatchbacks like the Concept C shown above simply won't be on the tips of anyone's tongues.
This is a big country, with a lot of wide open spaces. Gas is still cheap. And a full-size pickup with a V-8 engine and most of the trimmings costs less than many well-equipped six-cylinder midsize sedans. Put simply, America has had no real need to think small. But it will soon.
Looking much like a Renault with Lincoln's "flying wing" '41 Continental retro cue grille, the Lincoln Concept Car - 2012 Lincoln Concept-C is about the length of the '11 Focus, but about 2.75-inches wider for three-abreast seating via two flat benches. Ford designers cite the '39 Lincoln, '56 Continental II and '61 Continental as inspiration. But the a-pillar is curved much like a Renault Espace's, and the c-pillar ends in a Clio-esque bustle trunk. While there's no tumblehome, a deep shoulderline accents the profile.
The Lincoln Concept Car - 2012 Lincoln Concept-C is an attempt to reinvent the American luxury for this brave, new automotive world. It's a uniquely American take on a vehicle genre the Europeans and Asians have owned over the past 40 years.
The Lincoln Concept Car - 2012 Lincoln Concept-C has more interior space than a '61 Continental, J Mays and Freeman Thomas proudly note. The engine, theoretically - Lincoln didn't open the hood -- is a planned 1.6-liter EcoBoost four with central direct injection, variable valve timing on both cams and an interesting stop/start system to shut down the engine for red lights and stop signs. Restarts use a fraction of the starter energy required for a cold start by injecting and igniting fuel in the cylinder closest to top-dead-center on the compression stroke.
The six-speed, twin-clutch "Powershift" transmission uses more efficient dry clutches (Audi DSG's wet clutches require an oil pump). It gains 9-percent better fuel economy than a conventional automatic transmission, Ford says. Including some key weight savings, Ford expects the EcoBoost-powered Lincoln Concept Car - 2012 Lincoln Concept-C would get about 25-percent better fuel economy than a similar car with a 2.0-liter.
