At the launch of the car, chief designer of the Peugeot 208 T16, Michael Trouve said “Peugeot Sport provided us with a number of technical constraints, such as the width, body height, location of the wheels and engine, and we worked to this brief to produce an extreme take on the 208.

“Its proportions are very different to those of the production 208, [which] gives it an almost beast-like appearance.”

Motorsport fans will look forward to this year’s Pikes Peak event on June 30th, which will be subject to heightened media coverage following the announcement of 9-time World Rally Champion, Sebastien Loeb’s entry in the Peugeot 208 T16.
