Peugeot 405 T16 inspires 508

The elegant Peugeot 405 also appeared in the sporty T16 version in the early nineties. With permanent all-wheel drive, 162 kW (220 hp) power and a top speed of 235 km / h, the Peugeot 405 T16 was the ideal choice for those looking for a high-performance family car. The 405 T16 is thus the forerunner of the new 508 Peugeot Sport Engineerd, which Peugeot introduced on the occasion of its 210th anniversary. Thirty years after the launch of the 405 T16, in the era of the energy transition, Peugeot is rewriting the concept of the high-performance sports sedan. The 508 ugeot Sport Engineerd has an output of 265 kW (360 hp) thanks to the combination of a combustion engine and two electric motors.

Driving pleasure is at the heart of Peugeot’s DNA. Under the Peugeot Sport Engenied label, Peugeot is working on a new dimension of performance by developing cars in which the electric drive offers new sensations and a new driving experience. With the sporty version of the Peugeot 508 and 508 SW, Peugeot writes the first chapter in the history of the Peugeot Sport Engenied label. The 508 Peugeot Sport Engenied is a blend of sportiness and technology and lays the foundation for a new form of responsible, sustainable performance: Neo-Performance.

Na mijn opleiding aan de Frederik Muller Academie ben ik jaren werkzaam geweest voor verschillende uitgeverijen zoals Elsevier en NRC Handelsblad. Daarvoor heb ik zelfstandig en met heel veel plezier het kwartaaltijdschrift Peugeot Expo Magazine uitgegeven. In mijn vrije tijd rijd ik graag in een Peugeot 403, ik Twitter graag over auto's en ik houd van hardlopen. Ik vind het leuk om mensen met elkaar te verbinden.
