Nasim showcases the 2009 LE-MANS winning 908 HDI FAP at KLIMS

Nasim Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of the Peugeot brand in Malaysia, is showcasing the winner of the 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP, at the 2010 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS).

The 908 HDi FAP, raced by Team Peugeot Total, made its debut in the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in 2007 and became the second diesel-engined sports car from a major automotive manufacturer.

The 908 HDi FAP features a 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V12 high-pressure diesel engine which produces over 730 hp and 1,200 Nm of torque.

HDi is a system developed by Peugeot which entails direct injection of diesel based on heavy injection pressure. The level of performance from the HDi in the 908 is unprecedented in a diesel engine.

At the same time, it's diesel particulate filter system (DPFS) features a cylinder located in the exhaust line of the car is mainly made up of carborundum, which is highly porous with a large number of tiny holes that trap the soot from combustion making the 908 Hdi both powerful yet environmentally-friendly.

“Peugeot is a world leader in diesel technology and their HDi technology can be found in over 50% of their cars sold in Europe.

“These cars are powerful yet fuel efficient and environmentally friendly and the 908 Hdi FAP is an example of what can be achieved with Peugeot's diesel technology.

“We have not been able to introduce Peugeot's diesel cars in Malaysia yet as the fuel specifications here currently do not meet the requirements for these cars.

“However, we hope there will be high-quality EURO 4 diesel available in Malaysia in the near future so that we can offer these cars to the market,” said SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, CEO of Nasim.

The 908 HDi FAP was the winner at the 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans, 2009 Petit Le Mans as well as the 2010 12 Hours of Sebring and the 2010 Spa 1000 km.

Most recently, it won the inaugural Interncontinental Le Mans Cup in Zhuhai, China.

The 908 HDi FAP is on display at the Peugeot exhibit at KLIMS until Dec 12. Besides the 908 Hdi FAP, other cars on display include the new 5008 MPV, the new 207, the enhanced 308 Turbo, the 3008 SUV and the 308 VTi.
