Peugeot 508 Could Get A Performance Version?

By  | 

We got to see the new 508 in Touring wagon form at the Paris Motor Show this month. At that time, there was no mention of the vehicle getting a performance version but it looks like they are working on one.

According to Motoring, Peugeot is working on a new 508 R model that will come in to compete with models like the Audi S4 and Mercedes-AMG C43. The vehicle will be fitted with a 1.4-liter turbocharged hybrid powertrain engine that will be delivering about 350hp. It is estimated that the vehicle would be able to go from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155mph.

Of course, with all that power, the vehicle should also come with a sportier looking exterior design. As amazing as it sounds, we are not sure if Peugeot is going to bring the vehicle over. There have been talks that PSA is preparing to return to the US market.
