During the heady days of Group B rallying, Peugeot decided it wanted a piece of the action. To enter the series, there had to be at least 200 road-going examples of a car produced. Enter the Peugeot T16. With a 205 bodyshell, the T16 was transformed into a mid-engine four-wheel-drive monster. Using the cast-iron block from the diesel version of the 205, the road-going versions produced just half the power (147kw) of the race variants. The T16 saw significant success, winning 15 World Rally events, including the Rally of New Zealand twice.
