Limited edition Peugeot 207 HDi Le Mans Series

Peugeot 207 HDi Le Mans Series

Car companies are never too shy to let a marketing opportunity slip, and the limited edition Pegueot 207 HDi ‘Le Mans Series’ is certainly proof of that. Limited to just 75 models in Australia (from 2000 world wide) the diesel Pug attempts to build on Peugeot’s Le Mans heritage, including their triple podium result in the 1993 24 hour race (with Geoff Brabham in the winning car) and the current 908 HDi FA racecar

Priced at $31,990 the 1.6 litre 207 HDi is available in Biana White and Obsidien Black, both colours having the red racing stripe on the bonnet and the (dare I say it) HSV-like lion’s head door graphic. The limited edition model also has plenty of other goodies thrown in, including 17″ alloys, ESP, dual zone climate control and leather/alcantara seats, to name just  a few. As expected, fuel consumption is very tidy, coming in under 5l/100km, although power is moderate at 80kW, but in true diesel fashion torque is where it’s at—the 207 HDi ‘Le Mans Series’ has 240Nm available at just 1750rpm.
