Loeb Drives His New Peugeot T16

Motorsport

When you've won as many rallies as Sebastien Loeb, you can drive pretty much anything you want.

After absolutely dominating the World Rally Championship for nine years straight, Sebastien LOeb is looking for new challenges. So he's been racing McLaren 12Cs and Porsche GT3s on the track, but soon he’ll be taking to Pikes Peak for the ultimate hillclimb challenge in the new 208 T16. The French automaker has been giving us a steady stream of info and photos regarding its new hillclimb racer, but though it’s been designed and built specifically for him, this is the first time that Loeb has actually driven the thing.

To recap, the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak packs 875 horsepower from its 3.2-liter twin-turbo V6 to reach 62 mph from a standstill in just 1.8 seconds and 150 mph in seven seconds flat. The team also revealed the car's final livery, which we've included below the video.
