Peugeot 208 GTi Tuned to 236 HP by Clemens Motorsport [Video]
Our favorite little lion puts down 200 hp stock, but German tuning firm Clemens Motorsport, from Ulm, can bump that up a bit. The Stage 1 kit only plays with the ECU and is supposed to give you 220-225 PS for €750.
Stage 2 is where the real magic happens. You get 235 to 240 PS for €2,050, which brings everything from better cooling to better breathing for Peugeot’s 200 THP turbo engine. We caught up with the tuning project just as one car was being dynoed. Figures have risen to 236 PS and 350 Nm of torque, which is very impressive. There isn’t a single stock engine out there that gets that much torque from 1.6 liters.
Not surprisingly, the 208 GTI also sounds very good, thanks to a new exhaust system with double 70mm pipes which we love.
