CONTINENTAL PRODUCTIONS presents the PEUGEOT HYPERCAR 9X8 – The ultimate design, photographed by AGNIESZKA DOROSZEWICZ c/o CONTIART

PEUGEOT has now presented the prototype of the Hypercar 9X8. And CONTINENTAL PRODUCTIONS presents you the futuristic model here on GoSee, staged in legendary shots by transportation photographer Agnieszka DOROSZEWICZ c/o CONTIART. This fascinating racing car of the newest generation will compete for the first time at the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) 2022. It features all the hallmarks of PEUGEOT’s Neo-Performance strategy. The clearly defined goal : The development of series and racing cars that deliver sustainable performance. The 9X8 is the result of the cooperation between the engineers from PEUGEOT Sport and the PEUGEOT Design team.

“Much more than a racing car, the 9X8 is already an iconic object, an esthetic and technical revolution, an ultimate design adventure. Matthias HOSSANN, PEUGEOT Design Director, placed the PEUGEOT 9X8 Hybrid Hypercar amid brutalist architecture before it hits the endurance racetracks in 2022. This was the perfect opportunity for fashion and supercar photographer, Agnieszka DOROSZEWICZ, to play with light, as well as all the contrasts and textures of concrete. The photos are like a metaphor for the 24 hours of Le Mans, a mythical race during which the light changes over time.” we quote PEUGEOT.


Photographer Agnieszka Doroszewicz on the shoot with the unique PEUGEOT 9X8 : “We really wanted to spread our session over a long day and extend it late into the night. I was thus able to create in my photos an evocation of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Daylight, artificial lights, the violent illuminations of headlights are combined with the powerful pattern of the car’s luminous claws. Obviously, we are not at all in Le Mans, but it is the whole atmosphere of Le Mans that we find there!”

Home away from home in Hamburg, Agnieszka graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Photographic Design and has been working as a self-employed photographer since 2007. The photographer, who is more than comfortable in the world of post production, tells us about her favorite racing circuit : “I have often been invited to work at Le Mans and other 24-hour races, at Nürburgring (Germany) or at Spa (Belgium). But Le Mans is the most historic and my absolute favorite. We can feel in each of our pores the atmosphere, the excitement, the tension and, of course, the history of this race. Impossible to escape it, Le Mans is one of the purest and most ultimate forms of motor racing.”


Agnieszka continues : “Each shoot generates anecdotes. During this one, with the PEUGEOT 9X8, it was horribly cold ! But nothing dampened the passion of Matthias and his team to participate in the entire session, and their presence was very motivating because we took the opportunity to have a real exchange. In addition, the shoot location was truly fantastic : The contrast between the very pure aesthetics of the 9X8 and the brutalist architecture was impressive, and the raw patina of the concrete texture evoked the world of racetracks perfectly.”

French carmaker Peugeot began the series production of automobiles as early as 1891 and is therefore considered the oldest still existing car brand.
