Peugeot has released footage with Sebastien Loeb testing the sinister-looking 208 T16 Pikes Peak.

Peugeot has released footage with Sebastien Loeb testing the sinister-looking 208 T16 Pikes Peak.

Set to participate in the Unlimited Class, Loeb's Red Bull-sponsored 208 T16 has a twin-turbo V6 3.2-liter engine churning 875 bhp (652 kW) linked to a six-speed sequential transmission sending power to all four wheels.

As a result of this setup, the car will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in an almost unbelievable 1.8 seconds and needs 4.8 seconds to hit 124 mph (200 km/h). It will take 7 seconds until the speedometer reads 149 mph (240 km/h).

Loeb says the 208 T16 Pikes Peak has "the downforce of a Formula 1 car, the wide tires of an endurance racing prototype and a differential, like a WRC car. In short, it's a cocktail that gives you wings." (Pun intended most likely).
