Peugeot reveals the 208 T16 Pikes Peak. Nothing about power [Video]


This is getting annoying. Most people that read my blog, and this applies to the vast majority of car blogs, want to see pictures, know about the power and torque the engine produces, how many screens and how big they are, and occasionally there is some interesting information about a new technology that is used in the vehicle in question. Peugeot only fulfilled one point.

To summarize, Peugeot will return to Pikes Peak (won in 1988 and 1989), which is now all paved, with a special 208 T16. The track is almost 20km long, has 156 curves and rises almost 1500 meters, up to 4300m. The car will be driven by Sebastien Loeb on June 30.

I sincerely hope that Peugeot reveals the values ​​of power and torque and I hope they are close to 1000PS (986hp or 736kW) and 1000Nm (738lb/ft). Anything below that will be extremely disappointing
