2008 Peugeot 608

2008 Peugeot 608

Peugeot is working on a replacement to the current 607. Peugeot 608 inspire the design of 908RC concept car shown at the Salon de l'Automobile in Paris 2006. The frontal shape of the 908 should give you some ideas for the new Peugeot 608. The 608 will be developed from the platform Citroën C6. It will begin this year at the Salon de l'Automobile in Paris.

The 607 is suffering from a lack of awareness and also to a lack of high-end engines. The new high-end french of the car will use a platform 407 lengthened, and should also have the same trip trains.

The 608 is slightly longer than the 607 but will remain below 5 m in length. The model will be an evolution of the 607 after several topics presented during recent concept cars. The first design of the next 608 is not accurate, but the side profile is representative of a subtle rapprochement between the 4-door coupe launched in the class Mercedes CLS model.

The petrol versions will be driven by an engine of 2.2 to 16 valves and 163bhp and V6 215bhp. A revised version of the 2.7 HDi V6 will also emerge, but with the increased power over the current 200bhp and a brand new V6 petrol. You can also expect a model of TI. Diesel engines are a 2.2 HDI biturbo delivering 170 horsepower, V6 HDI with a power of 207 hp. There is also a possibility that Peugeot will add a V8 engine under the hood of this car. The car will feature a six-speed automatic.
