2022 Peugeot 9X8 Le Mans Hypercar takes to the track in new video

Peugeot in 2019 announced plans to enter the new Le Mans Hypercar (LMH) class of the World Endurance Championship, and on Wednesday the French automaker fully revealed its contender and showed it for the first time on the racetrack.

It’s called the 9X8, and 2022 will be its first season of competition. The LMH class experienced its first season in 2021, with Toyota coming out on top with its GR010 Hybrid. Also competing last year were Glickenhaus with the 007 and Alpine with a grandfathered LMP1. Ferrari is also committed to LMH but won’t be ready until 2023.

Peugeot plans to enter two 9X8s in the 2022 season and has signed up several top drivers including ex-Formula One drivers Paul Di Resta and Kevin Magnussen, and 2013 Le Mans winner Loic Duval.
