Peugeot's throwback race car concept is beautiful and innovative

Peugeot's new concept car brings a 100-year-old race car to the 21st century.

In 1916, Peugeot's L45 race car won one of the biggest races in the world, the
Indianapolis 500. This weekend is the 100th anniversary of that race, and a special new concept race car to celebrate with.
Peugeot's new concept, the L500 R HYbrid debuted Friday, and it looks absolutely amazing.
Check it out.

The car uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain that has two 500 horsepower motors and one 270 horsepower gasoline motor. It can do zero to 62 in 2.5 seconds.
