Peugeot 908 Concept
A V12 Peugeot sedan.
I can tell you this will never see the production line.
Peugeot already has trouble selling their 607 large sedan against Mercedes and BMW.
So an even larger, much more expensive V12 sedan would be like, I don’t know.. Like VW trying to sell a $90 000 V12 sedan.
One crazy idea….
Don’t get me wrong, I think this car looks amazing. (It even has a bit of Syd Mead in its look) I just wish the front end was as simple and elegant as the back.
VW has already made that mistake and I think Peugeot is a bit smarter…

Wow, Simply Beautiful, I can’t stop drooling..
it is clearly a showcase of new design themes to follow, not to preview a new large french sedan. simple math! french + four doors + big = disaster
Sorry to disrupt you, Vince, but as i can recall from my memory, the French never has a decent large saloon before. I heard everything falls apart in their mini cars like Peugeot 207, what is the hope of reliability or build quality in their “super” saloon?
It’s a very beautiful car! I hope that the 608 will be the same!
THE PEUGEOT 908 IS A NICE DESIGN,PEUGEOT 907 CONCEPT IS VERY BEAUTIFUL AND ALL PEUGEOT ARE LOVELY THE 307CC ,207,407 ,607, when Peugeot return to the STATS?QUICKly, i love the FRENCH DESIGN
Is that a BMW-like kidney grille on the front?
It is not only V12, but a V12 HDI DIesel (Common RAil diract injection), with twin turbo ans particle filter.
700HPs and Truck like 1200 Nm of torque (no idea what it is in pound feet). Rear engined as if the engine wouldn´t be mad itself (would make a nice new Tucker Torpedo or Tatra).
Yeah, the front end is kind of Batmanish, while the rest of the car is restrained and elegant.
Did this thing escape from the set of a new Batman movie?
I know that Commissioner Gordon’s 300 managed to make it out, but that car’s not right in the head, either.
The front sadly reminds me of the Maybach Exelero. I mean it’s not a bad design, but it’s in a sense, scary!
Sweet! It’s a bit long. But damn this thing is sexy.
This is the car for when Batman finally marries Robin and they settle down to make a family.
