Peugeot is reportedly preparing to launch a 208 GTi Pikes Peak Edition.

Designed to celebrate Sebastien Loeb's record setting run in the 208 T16 Pikes Peak earlier this year, the model will reportedly be based on the 208 GTi and feature a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that develops an extra 20-30 HP (15-22 kW). This would bring the car's output up to 220-230 HP (162-169 kW) which should enable it to outperform the standard model that runs from 0-100 km/h in less than seven seconds and has a top speed in excess of 225 km/h (140 mph).

If that's not impressive enough, there's also word of a possible 208 R that could use the 1.6-liter THP engine that produces 270 HP (198 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque.
