Peugeot to unveil hot 308 R Concept

Not content with showing off its brand new 308 hatchback at next month's Frankfurt motor show, Peugeot has also announced it is to unveil this, the 308 R Concept – a thinly veiled look at what a forthcoming performance iteration will look like.

It will be powered by the same turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine as the striking RCZ R, which was unveiled last year at the Paris motor show. Developing 270bhp, it provides more than enough poke for the 308 R to contend with the current crop of rival hot hatchbacks.
