The impressive Peugeot 208 T16 has managed to rack up a second famous hill climb, the Goodwood, where it was named the fastest car at the event.
The French based automaker’s latest creation in terms of motorsport, the Peugeot 208 T16, has been recently named the fastest car at the Goodwood Hill Climb, after it has won the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb just a few weeks ago. The model in question wasn’t driven by Sebastien Loeb, but by the company’s test driver Gregory Guilvert, who managed to complete the course in just 45.86 seconds, close to the all-time record of 41.6 seconds achieved by the McLaren MP4-13 Formula 1 car, back in 1998.
As a quick reminder, the Peugeot 208 T16 is powered by an impressive 3.2 liter V6 twin turbo engine, which is producing a total output of 875 HP (652 kW). The unit is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission with steering wheel paddle shifters which are helping the racer accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 1.8 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 4.8 seconds and from 0 to 240 km/h (149 mph) in 7 seconds.
