PEUGEOT LAUNCHES NEW TURBO-CHARGED 308 GT THP 175 AT THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW


- 1.6 liter turbo-charged THP 175 bhp engine

- Dynamic exterior and interior changes

- 10% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to 307 Feline 180

- On sale in the UK in April 2008


Peugeot will unveil two new 308 models at this years Geneva Motor Show, the innovative and practical 308 SW and the dynamic Peugeot 308 GT THP 175. This new top of the range petrol model will be powered by the 1.6 liter turbo-charged THP 175 bhp petrol engine, previously found in the 207 GTi THP 175. It is also fitted with a new 6-speed manual gearbox.



To match the dynamic nature of the engine, the exterior of the vehicle benefits from a number of cosmetic changes. The lower front bumper panel has a unique appearance which is combined with a rear spoiler and a reduced overall ride height.


Inside, the interior gains an aluminum gear knob and foot pedals and a new steering wheel design. Designed in co-operation with the BMW Group, the 1.6 liter turbo-charged petrol engine develops a maximum power of 175 bhp at 6000 rpm but is characterised mainly by its generous torque output. With a maximum torque output of 180 lb ft (or 195 lb ft with overboost) at only 1600 rpm, the engine provides excellent in-gear acceleration and levels of driveability normally associated with a larger capacity engine.



This new engine provides the Peugeot 308 with higher performance levels while, at the same time, providing a combined fuel consumption of 37.1 mpg and CO2 emissions of 180 g/km, 10% less than those of the 307 2.0 liter Feline 180.


The Peugeot 308 GT THP 175 will go on sale in the UK in April. More information about specification and prices will be announced nearer the launch date by Peugeot.
