2012 PEUGEOT 208 RS


Peugeot French automaker
has been a staple in the
rally scene for as long as
we can remember. So when
word leaks out that they’re
planning to reveal their
next generation rally car,
people tend to take notice.
At the 2012 Paris Motor
Show later this month,
Peugeot is bringing the all-
new
208 Type R5, the car
that’s slated to become
their new prized steed at
the Intercontinental Rally
Challenge.
Needless to say, the 208
Type R5 has some pretty
big shoes to fill in large
part because its
successor, the
207 Super
2000, rang up
championships – three IRC
drivers and manufacturers
titles – during its time at
the IRC.
The racer will have to
adhere to regulations set
by S2000 category. What
that means is that the 208
Type R5 has been fitted
with a number of racing
components, including
widened tracks, a spoiler,
an increase in the wheel
arches to accommodate a
new set of 18″ wheels. All
these were done while
keeping attention on the
series’ minimum weight set
of 1,200kg for the gravel
and asphalt versions.
“Based on an optimisation
of costs”, explains
Bertrand Vallat, the Type
R5’s project leader, “the
regulations impose, among
other things, a maximum
price for certain parts and
technical limitations such as
a minimum weight of
components of the chassis
and engine. In addition, a
certain number of
components of the vehicle
must be similar. The hub
carrier is a perfect
example. All four must be
identical. This makes
operation considerably
easier and limits costs and
stocking.”
The 208 Type R5 is
powered by a 1.6-liter
turbo engine that produces
280 horsepower at 6,000
rpm and 295 lb/ft of torque
at 2,500 rpm. The four-
wheel drive system sends
power to all four wheels
thanks to a 5-speed
sequential gearbox and
two self-locking
differentials.
As far as expectations are
concerned, Peugeot is
shooting for the stars,
Vallat said: “The
regulations impose, among
other things, a maximum
price for certain parts and
technical limitations such as
a minimum weight of
components of the chassis
and engine.”
“We are aiming for
performance which is
slightly higher than
S2000,” he adds.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
