It won 19 from the 28 races in which it raced between 2007 and 2010 The Peugeot 908 made its race debut at the opening round of the 2007 Le Mans Series season, the 1000km of Monza. They finished 1st and 3rd in that race. After that came numerous other wins with the overall win at the 2009 24h of Le Mans being the most famous. New 2011 Le Mans Prototype regulations rendered the first-generation 908 obsolete. Peugeot began development of a new prototype, known as the 90X, in late 2009. Officially unveiled on 3 February 2011 at the French manufacturers’ signature store on the Champs-Élysées, the new 908 is similar in design to the 908 HDi FAP but includes larger front wheels, a roof scoop and different bodywork. The V12 was replaced with a 3.7 litres (230 cu in) V8 that remains diesel-fueled. However, Oreca continued to run with the old 908 HDi FAP in 2011. In January of 2012 Peugeot suspended its endurance racing program with immediate effect due to financial problems. At the time of the shock announcement, the team's mechanics were already in Sebring preparing for a test session.
