Peugeot has released the first picture of the 208 T16 Pikes Peak in racing livery.

Decked out in Red Bull dubs, the 208 T16 Pikes Peak has a carbon fiber body and a tubular steel frame chassis. The car is also equipped with a sport-tuned suspension, high-performance brakes and custom magnesium alloy wheels with Michelin tires.

Power is provided by a twin-turbo 3.2-liter V6 engine that develops 875 bhp (652 kW). It is connected to a six-speed sequential transmission and an all-wheel drive system that enables the 875 kg (1,929 lb) race car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 1.8 seconds.

Sébastien Loeb will drive the car in the Unlimited Class and tackle the grueling 20 km (12.4 mile) long course that features 156 turns and a 1500 meter (4921 foot) elevation change.
