The manufacturer will also be displaying new and future products, some that make their UK debut at Goodwood.

One is the petrol-hybrid HR1 – a Compact MPV concept car that provides a further style indication of the design direction Peugeot is taking going forward.

he latest cars are also on display and include the new 308 CC that now has a 200bhp THP petrol engine  available in its line-up.. Also on display is the popular and stylish RCZ Sports Coupé, in the form of the new Asphalt LE of which only 75 are available in the UK.  The new 508, launched in the UK in April, is available to view in both Saloon and SW.

The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 is also on the list, while a number of RCZ Sports Coupes and new 508s in both Saloon and SW body style guises will be entered in the second Goodwood Moving Motor Show.

Competition vehicle displays include the 908 Endurance Race car, one of three factory Peugeot cars that finished the recent grueling Le Mans 24-hour race, and are chasing victory in the ILMC at Imola this same weekend.  Also displayed is Guy Wilks’ Peugeot 207 S2000 IRC Rally Car.  Guy will be running the 207 up the hillclimb and sideways through the rally stages throughout the weekend.

“At the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Peugeot’s heritage and future strengths are on display. Peugeot is a brand that is at the beginning of its third centenary of producing products of considerable innovation, endurance and style,” stated Peugeot Managing director, Jon Goodman.
