Peugeot celebrates a big anniversary this year; it was back on May 30, 1916, that a Peugeot L45 driven by Dario Resta won the Indy 500. Today, Peugeot is introducing the L500 R concept as their vision of racing in the future, and in honor of yesterday’s historic race.

The car was developed by Peugeot Sport as a tribute to that winning L45, but with very modern styling suited to a race car of the future. Rather than being a two-seater, it’s a single-seat racer with a small steering wheel. It also has a holographic i-Cockpit with two displays in dual discs.

According to Peugeot, this slick futuristic race car will be a plug-in hybrid…if it ever sees the light of day. It will combine a 270-horsepower gasoline engine with two electric motors mounted at the front and rear wheels. This will produce 500 horsepower with 539 lb-ft of torque.

The L500 R will post a 0-62 mph time of only 2.5 seconds. Yes, she’s going to be fast and she’s also going to be very lightweight at only 2,204 pounds with a low height of only 39.3 inches. It’s just a concept, but it’s definitely a vision of the future that we’d all love to see come true.
