The French based automaker Peugeot has recently released a video in which the new 208 T16 Pikes Peak is being tested up Mont Ventoux.
After it was officially unveiled just a few weeks ago, Peugeot’s newest creation in terms of race cars, the 208 T16 Pikes Peak, is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker releasing a video with the racer in action. The Peugeot 208 Pikes Peak is being shown, in the footage posted below, in action, up Mont Ventoux. The video in question is also offering some great engine sound so if you were wondering how the racer sounds, than you’re in the right place.
As a quick reminder, the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak weighs 875 kg and it’s 4,500 mm long, 2,000 mm wide and 1,300 mm tall, riding on a 2,695 mm wheelbase. The model is powered by an impressive 3.2 liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which is producing a whopping 875 HP (652 kW). The unit is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission, with steering wheel paddle shifters, which is allowing the model to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h 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.
