The first Group B Rally car to join my collection, and probably the best all-rounder the series ever saw, winning both the drivers and constructors championships in 1985 and 86.
It may not have quite had the outright performance on the Lancia Delta S4, but it wasn’t as difficult to drive either.
Following Group B being banned for the 1987 season, Peugeot would run a modified 205 T16 in the infamous Paris-Dakar Rally, which it won.
The 205 T16 was also developed into the 405 T16, made famous by setting a new record time for the Pikes Peak hill climb even.
An award winning short film was made of this run, titled “Dance Climb”
