Sébastien Loeb and the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak
When we first reported that rally ace Sébastien Loeb would be driving Peugeot's 875 hp monster up the treacherous Pikes Peak hill climb, it was clear that a record breaking time was on the cards. But what actually transpired was more than just record breaking: it was total annihilation, as Loeb completed his run in 8:13.878, over a minute and a half faster than the previous best.
Not content, Loeb and his Peugeot now head to the Goodwood hill-climb in search of a new record. He'll attempt to beat the record set by a McLaren F1 car this June.
