It was developed by Peugeot Sport and have chosen to stick a 1.6 THP 308 GTI but with turbo 208 T16 giving 308 horsepower in its first phase (say in future developments of the engine's power is achieved a milestone given its displacement). The change is sequential six speeds actuatable by the cams arranged behind the steering wheel paddles.

Being a racing car diet is a decisive factor and Peugeot Sport have taken it seriously. They have managed to put the weight between 1000 and 1050 kg with a cast that is 63% front and 37% rear.

A radically different aesthetic

The body kit is also specific and more aggressive than the Peugeot 308 GTI. They have widened wheel arches with additional 106 mm reaching an overall width of 1910 mm. Wheels are 18-inch slicks. The bumpers are specific with a protruding front lip and a wing that meets the standards of the WTCC.

The body has been duly reinforced with a multipoint safety cage homologated by the FIA rear window made of polycarbonate side windows with a tire jack and three supports.

Also the braking system is dictated by a piston calipers.
