The mythic 205 T16 Evo 2 fitted with the even rarer Pikes Peak-spec engine
We have featured Jean Duby´s Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2 before, alongside Sebastien Loeb´s Peugeot 208 T16 in a comparison video, but it´s now time to show this Monster by itself as it quite the unique unit even among the normal standards of this Group B Monster.
This is Chassis C216 and was raced by Michele Mouton and Juha Kankkunen on 1986 on Tour de Corse and the 1000 Lakes Rally respectively. After the end of Group B it would be transformed into a Rallycross Car, although even more important than that, was that it was fitted with a 1.9L Turbocharged from a Pikes Peak-spec 205 T16. After being stopped for a number of years, it would be eventually be bought by Mr. Duby in 2013 and since then it has appeared on a number of special occasions, to perform Demo runs on selected Festivals and/or Hillclimb events.
Producing between 550Hp-700Hp depending on boost, it is quite the unique Monster and it was possible to observe it up-close on the Montée des Lègendes 2018 event on France.
