Fun fact: Peugeot planned an extended version with a 4.0 V8 engine that was supposed to make 380 horsepower. Just imagine what a spanking that would have been to the German competition. Lmao

They should of put it in a Peugeot 405 Mi16!

380 seems very elevated. This could only be achieved with some aggressive tuning and expensive internals for high RPMs. And emissions could be problem in that case anyway.
I don't think they could reliably ship a 4.0 V8 with that much horsepower. But they could do 300+ which would still be a lot for that time.

True, but it would have been pretty sick nonetheless. Alpina did the same thing with their B10 Biturbo
