Not just Audi is betting on diesel
engines for its endurance racers. Peugeot decided to enter the Le Mans 24 Hours race with a car powered by a Hdi diesel engine equipped with a diesel particulate filter. More than 60% of all Peugeot-Citroen cars sold are equipped with diesel engines, and more than 70% of all cars sold in France are diesels. Peugeot was one of the first manufacturers to fit particulate filters as standard equipment on their diesel engines. The engine of choice will be a V12 engine with 5.5 liters in displacement, the maximum capacity the rules allow. The engine will produce more than 1200 Nm of torque.
