After recently announcing that it was returning to the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb with nine-tine WRC champion Sebastien Loeb, Peugeot has just released these images of its upcoming ‘Unlimited’ class hillclimber.

Among the details we can pick out are a carbon-fibre body with flared wheelarches, side exhaust, roof scoop and a big rear wing. The stripped-out, roll-caged, no-nonsense interior houses a carbon-fibre racing seat, a steering wheel flanked by shift paddles and a digital readout.

The 208 T16 Pikes Peak is also expected to have 4WD, and nine-time world rally champion Sébastien Loeb will compete with the car in the Unlimited Class. In 1988, Peugeot won the event with a 405 T16 driven by Ari Vatanen.
