Peugeot announces exit from Le Mans
Pug parks its diesel and pulls out of the 2012 Le Mans race
Posted: 20 Jan 2012
2007 was the start of a new era in endurance racing and Peugeot's first factory team race since 1993 . Both Audi and Peugeot brought cars that drank from the black pump and they were quick. Really quick. But eerily silent.
The 5.5 litre V12 twin-turbo, mid-engined, longitudinally mounted diesel engine once again made Peugeot competitive. And in 2009 the 908 took them to their first win at Le Mans in 16 years.
