Ultimate Peugeot revealed!

We’re not being sensational. This is the most powerful Peugeot ever. Be excited, damn you

New 407 Coupe

Pop quiz: what's the most powerful Peugeot ever? And how powerful is/was it?

Excluding the 908 Le Mans racer, of course. That'd be cheating. Any ideas? Anyone?

We'll put you of your misery. The most powerful Peugeot ever is this, the new 407 Coupe powered by a new 3.0-litre diesel.

Yes, the most powerful Peugeot ever is a diesel. It's 241bhp of powerful, to be precise, and will haul the big coupe to 62mph in 7.7 seconds. It also puts out a meaty 332lb ft of torque and will return 39.2mpg and just 189g/km of CO2.

Are we alone in being slightly surprised that there's never been a more powerful Peugeot, somewhere in the depths of the French marque's history, that somewhere, in among all those epic hot hatches, there's nothing that'd give this worthy but not-especially-exciting 407 a good duffing?

We'll take the most powerful Audi ever, ta. Or the most powerful Bentley.

Or the most powerful Aston...

Now share it...
