Based on the 207 Sport three-door, the S16 was created to celebrate Kris Meeke's win of the 2009 IRC drivers' title.

Peugeot has unveiled the 207 S16 special edition for the United Kingdom.

Based on the 207 Sport 1.6 VTi three-door, the S16 was created to celebrate Kris Meeke's win of the 2009 IRC drivers' title. As such, the car has rally-inspired graphics (which mimic those found on Meeke's IRC winning 207 S2000 rally car), a 207 RC Cup bodykit (with front and rear spoilers, aerodynamic side skirts, and a faux rear diffuser), and an interior badge signed by Meeke. Other styling touches include a mesh grille, dark tinted windows, and 17-inch Hockenheim alloy wheels.

Despite the racy appearance, the S16 does not feature any performance upgrades. Saddled with an anemic 1.6-liter VTi petrol engine, that produces 120 bhp (kW), the 207 runs from 0-62 mph in 10.7 seconds and has a top speed of 125 mph. On the up side, the engine returns a combined 47.1 mpg and has an emissions rating of 139 g/km.

Priced from £14,695 (OTR), only 250 special editions will be produced.
