A Hybrid in the Le Mans?

That’s got to be some sort of tabloid article, right? Nobody would dare pull something like that.

If you thought anything along the lines of the above sentences, YOU’RE WRONG! But at least it’s in a good way, you pessimistic little blog-troll.

French car company Peugeot will be entering a gas-electric hybrid into the Le Mans series next year. Want to see a picture? Okay!

Pretty sick, right? I know I’m drooling.

Anyway, it remains to be seen whether or not Peugeot’s hybrid will be allowed to officially compete, but if nothing else, it will compete as a “00” racer to give them lots of good data to mess around with. An endurance race is an excellent way to test new technologies, and the 12 and 24 hour Le Mans will be just the thing.

Here’s another pic, I couldn’t resist:
