The Peugeot 208 T16 finalized the last tests at Pikes Peak, Colorado.
The 208 T16 characteristics are :
- A twin-turbo V6 3.2-liter engine churning 875 bhp (652 kW)
- AWD system
- 6-speed sequential transmission
- 1 kilogram for 1 horsepower = 2.2 pounds for 1 horsepower !
As a result of this setup, the car will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in an almost unbelievable 1.8 seconds and needs 4.8 seconds to hit 124 mph (200 km/h). It will take 7 seconds until the speedometer reads 149 mph (240 km/h).
Sébastien Loeb -driver- says the 208 T16 Pikes Peak has "the downforce of a Formula 1 car, the wide tires of an endurance racing prototype and a differential, like a WRC car. In short, it's a cocktail that gives you wings." (Pun intended most likely).
