From afar, the Peugeot 205 T16 looks much like the front-wheel drive, front-engine street car it was based on. When competition in World Rally Championship (WRC) was at an all-time high, Peugeot wanted to taste the victory they had enjoyed in the past. To meet Group B homologation, 200 road cars had to be built and, with that, the 205 T16 was born. These radical cars had a specially developed mid-mounted four-cylinder turbocharged, 16-valve engine mated to a four-wheel-drive system. The street version of the 205 T16 only differed from the rally version through a lowered turbo boost and the interior trim. The factory rally cars had an astounding record beginning in 1984, taking first place in three rallies, then seven more first place victories in 1985. After 1986, WRC cancelled the Group B category due to safety concerns, but not before the Peugeot 205 T16 brought in six more top podiums. The 205 T16 enjoyed its very last race--the 1986 Olympus Rally in Washington State--where it took second overall.
