Description

Peugeot 205 T16 is a homologation special limited to 200 units that launched in 1984 based on the Group B rally car.

Unlike the 205 supermini, the hardcore 205 T16 utilized a transverse mid-engine layout with a 16-valve 1775 cm3 four cylinder engine producing 147 kw (200 hp) of power and 255 Nm of torque. Power was sent to all four wheels through a 5 speed manual gearbox. The 205 T16 also had new tubular sub-frames made out of steel, with racing suspension. Performance was impressive for its era, with a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 6 seconds and a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).

Visually, the 205 T16 featured a wider bodykit produced by Heuliez with large wheel arches covering the wider tracks, side intakes for cooling the engine, new front and rear bumpers, redesigned bonnet and a completely redesigned rear end that would open in order to unveil the engine. Inside, the car had the racing gauges, sport seats with red harnesses from Sabelt, roll cage, upholstered dashboard and no rear seats.
