    That looks simply stunning, I hope we can see a Peugeot in the WRC soon.

    I want Porsche to use those colours in LMP1 next season!

    That looks good but I preferred the black one!

    what happened? The black one was savage! Literally scared me to look at it. Was too good to be true.

    But they’re Peugeot colours. The livery is modelled on the one Peugeot used to use on the 205 T16 Group B car.

    Very clever mix of modern Red Bull and classic Peugeot, and it works really well.

    Didn’t know that they were classic Peugeot colours, the stripes reminded me of an old toy Porsche le Mans car I had years ago.

    Just a quick side-by-side comparison:

    Sorry to bother you again, but here’s Loeb doing some test drives on the Mont Ventoux – first in the new car, then in the 405 T16 :O

    About the power figure being more than an F1 car: the new 1.6l V6 single turbo units are expected to generate around the same figure as the current engines (so around 750 bhp), so they’d be only 125 down despite having half the capacity and half the turbos – pretty good going!

    The car looks incredibly fast though – the awesomeness of that machine is off the charts!

    A close shave for Toyota at Pikes Peak. Their charging generator for the electric racing car they are using was involved in a road collision and was damaged beyond repair. Luckily they were able to order in a replacement all the way from their Cologne base in Germany!
