Peugeot has recently posted a video in which famous racing driver Sebastien Loeb is taking the 208 T16 for a spin at the Pikes Peak.
The French based automaker’s newest creation in terms of racing cars is named the 208 T16 Pikes Peak, and just like its name is suggesting, it will be used during the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. But before it will be ready for the event, the company is currently testing it, with Sebastien Loeb behind the wheel. Loeb managed to get 3:29.24 stage time during testing and this is an impressive achievement.
As a quick reminder, the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak is powered by a 3.2 liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which is good for 875 HP (652 kW), mated to a six-speed sequential transmission with steering wheel paddle shifters. The Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in an impressive 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 just 7 seconds. The model has large magnesium alloy wheels, a double wishbone suspension, hydraulic double circuit brakes, a tubular steel frame and a 40-liter fuel tank capacity, amongst others.
