1984 Peugeot 205 T16 — Supercar Nostalgia


While Audi temporarily gained an edge in top flight rallying thanks to the revolutionary four-wheel drive Quattro, Lancia subsequently created the even quicker 037: the sport’s first Group B supercar.

For reasons of complexity and weight, Lancia had not gone the four-wheel drive route with the 037. That meant after the technically superior and four-wheel drive 205 T16 Group B special arrived at the Tour de Corse in May 1984, Peugeot took control of the WRC and the T16 became the most successful model of rallying’s most famous era.

Peugeot had secured homologation for the spectacular Evolution 1 and 2 T16s campaigned in the WRC by building a 200-strong batch of purpose-built road cars.
