Peugeot reveals new van inspired by Le Mans 24 racer
5 December 2007

This is Peugeot's new Bipper "Beep Beep" concept; a small van that is due to be revealed at the Bologna motor show this week, and will go on sale in May 2008.But according to Peugeot, the Bipper van "shares much of its character with the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP race car."That's the V12, diesel-powered LMP1 car that finished second overall at the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race this year, and which won the Le Mans Series championship. The similarities are clear. Both are launched in Italy, and both are "ready to meet the expectations of the many users who will choose this new vehicle as their day to day team mate."Also, both have diesel engines, although the 908 offers 700bhp against the Bipper's 70bhp. Just incase you missed the uncanny resemblance, the Peugeot Bipper "Beep Beep" concept comes with similar livery to the 908 endurance-racer, including white and red racing stripe.We assume the Bipper van will be slightly lower maintenance.
