    The car that Loeb used to break record on Pike's Peak in 2013.

    (technical specs in the end, in french, sorry)

    Some basics:
    4WD / 875hp / 875 kg / 883 Nm, V6 twinturbo, 3200 cm³.
    • 0 - 100 km/h : 1’’8 (Red Bull x1 2011 is 1.5)
    • 0 - 200 km/h : 4’’8 (Red Bull x1 2011 is 3.0)
    • 0 - 240 km/h : 7’’
    The 208 is the newest Peugeot platform for racing (208 R2 for rally, 208 Racing Cup for racing, 208 GTi for road). I'm sure we'll get her in GT7... The 208 T16 is an fantastic car, with a lot of "wow" effect due to her last performance on Pike's Peak, it should be in GT rigth now ! :)

    The T16 use some elements of the 908 LMP car (aero, rolling trains) and the Pescarolo engine.

    Some lap times :
    0'45.86 in Goodwood festival of speed 2013 (winner ex-aquo with a Rebellion Racing Lola Toyota B12/60 (LMP car - best petrol engine on Le Mans in 2011, just behing R15 / 908))
    8'13 on Pike's Peak.

    It is a cool car. Though if we did get PPIHC and more associated cars, I'd like JP Dayraut's MINI too :D

    1 minute and 33 sec, Loeb gives no money change :)

    Tajima ran a 9:46. He had no serious competitors since Loeb though. I hope there will be a good figth next year, I also hope Loeb comes back...

    This car on an authentic Pikes Peak. I would buy GT6 if this is all it had.

    The happiest looking car to ever set a record at Pikes Peak.

    I don't see a photo :odd: Did you add one?

    Edit: I can see from my post quoting you that you added a YouTube vid. Strange I couldn't see that from your original post

    I did post the video first, then decided to add the sentence afterwards, but I accidently put in in the wrong place and nothing was in the post, but I fixed it now.
