Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak Assetto Corsa Mod

The Peugeot 208 T16 Assetto Corsa mod is a faithful recreation of the extreme race car designed to tackle the gruelling Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

This outstanding Peugeot 208 T16 Assetto Corsa mod race car is a hardcore vehicle built for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The T16 has a monstrous 1016 horsepower per ton power-to-weight ratio, matching the Hennessey Venom GT hypercar.

Its power comes from a mid-mounted 3.2-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 875 horsepower, the turbochargers help compensate for power loss at high altitudes. With a featherweight 875kg weight, the T16 has blistering acceleration: 0-62mph in 1.8sec, 0-124mph in 4.8sec, 0-149mph in 7.0sec.

About Pikes Peak

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, often referred to as “The Race to the Clouds,” is one of the oldest and most prestigious motorsport events in the world, having started in 1916. It is renowned for its challenging course, which features 156 turns and ascends 4,720 feet to the summit at 14,115 feet above sea level.

But the 208 T16 is much more than just a powerful engine stuffed into a lightweight body. Its underpinnings are derived from Peugeot’s former Le Mans prototype endurance racers, incorporating pushrod suspension, vented carbon disc brakes, and an extreme aerodynamic package with a gargantuan 2-meter wide rear wing to generate downforce at high speeds. Nearly half the downforce comes from an underbody tray as well.

While based loosely on Peugeot’s humble European 208 R5 rally car, the mid-engined, all-wheel drive T16 is a radical departure and represents the extreme limits of performance possible from the small 208 platform. With the most powerful driver in Pikes Peak’s century-long history behind the wheel, the 208 T16 could reset everyone’s expectations of what’s possible in climbing racing.
