Peugeot L500 R Hybrid Is The Next Futuristic Race Car; Specs And Features Unveiled

In terms of strength, agility and stature, Peugeot L500 R Hybrid would stand out from the crowd. There are many notions that the next futuristic race car would be the Peugeot L500 R Hybrid, owing to its specs and features.

Peugeot did not front up at this year's Indianapolis 500, but that does not mean the French brand does not have a strong connection to the Brickyard because the Peugeot "Charlatans" team won the Indy 500 in 1913, 1916 and 1919. It indicates that the L500R HYbrid is a concept designed to celebrate this history, while still keeping an eye on the future of motorsports, according to Gizmag.

Also, it might be designed to celebrate the past. But the L500 R HYbrid's powertrain is a thoroughly modern hybrid setup with 500 hp (373 kW) and 730 Nm (538 lb ft) of torque and with just 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs) to shift. The combination of a 270 hp (201 kW) gasoline engine and electric motors on both axles will catapult the car to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds, as further noted by the same post.

In addition, it has the capacity to devour the standing kilometer of 0.62 mi in just a span of 19 seconds. More data from Motoring relayed on how the segment is painted blue and black paint like the original L45, the low-slung L500 measures just a meter high, while it comes with only one seat, wherein the driver can employ a virtual co-driver via the vehicle's virtual reality headset.

Naturally, Pug says that the L500 R HYbrid concept pays tribute to the century-old two-seat L45 racer driven by Dario Resta. And it was powered by a 4.5-liter engine that pushed the open-top Peugeot racer to an average speed of 135 km/h in the 1916 Indy 500, notes the same post.

It seems that the upgraded features of the Peugeot L500 R Hybrid are implying on how the segment promises futuristic features that make it one of kind. With Peugeot L500 R Hybrid, the future could be within sight.
