Peugeot returns to Pikes Peak


Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak

 

Before we get going, let’s drop some keywords first – that any petrol head should know. Pikes Peak, Peugeot, T16 and Ari Vatanen.

Now that we’ve set the mood, you’ll know that ari Vatanen set a world record in 1988 which led to a win at Pikes Peak. The car, a hill climb monster of a Peugeot 405 T16 GR, packing some 477kW, 735nm and all wheel drive.

Petrol. Head. Porn!

Anyway, you can read more about Ari’s car over on Super Cars.net. Let’s look at a newer breed of beast – the 208 T16.

This year, Peugeot return to Pikes Peak along with WRC rally champion Sébastien Loeb to try and smash more records. This years hill climb should be a fascinating one.

Pikes Peak takes place in June this year, so watch this space!

Here’s a trailer of what Peugeot will be unleashing on Pikes Peak this year. Crank up the volume on this one.

If you’re still reading, take a look at Ari in an award winning film, Hill Dance.
