Quick video of a 205GTi with a 3.0 V6 24valve engine.
Peugeot 205 1.9 Gti
Acceleration. Engine specs: 130hp/6000rpm and 161nm/4750rpm. So it`s stock.
Engine give over 90% torque between 2500-6000rpm, what mean that engine
give almost 150nm between this reving area and max 161nm is so near. So
it`s not high reving engine altought it`s GTI . Big torque area makes easy
to drive, you don´t have always rev so much that you can enduring power
and torgue area. And wheight is only 875-880kg. And stock 0-100 number is
Power/weight ratio is: 6,76
Torque/wheight ratio is: 5,46
And Power/Torque/weight ratio is: 6,76+5,46=12,22:2=6,11
What mean that, if you have car what weight is for example 1300kg, (and
very many little car`s weight is like that today) you need 192hp that you
have same power/weight ratio. And 238nm that you have same torque/weight
ratio. But what if in my 205 1.9 gti have 192hp and 238nm, then it`s would
be very very fast:D Maybe then under 6second 0-100. I don`t Know. But it`s
nice to think it=)
So what we can think, today car`s are too heavy, every year come heavier
and heavier car`s and if they want keep same acceleration, they have to
take more power again and again and its`s give bad fuel economy.
So if car is light, don`t have take so much power from engine, and you have
still fast car with wide/big torque area and good fuel economy and engine
life is long.
When i buy this car, and before when i test it first time, i wait high rpm
engine, but no, it not. But now i can enjoy engine like this=) I don`t miss
anymore high rpm engine.
