The battle for the elusive World Rally Championship (WRC) title has in recent years been dominated by Toyota, Subaru, Mitsubishi, and Ford. About 15 years ago, however, the Peugeot 205 Turbo-16 was the rally car to beat, sweeping back to back victories in the '85 and '86 seasons. In autumn of 1998, Peugeot triumphantly returned to rally action with the all new 206 WRC. With an overall length of only 4m and wheelbase of 2468mm, Peugeot's latest machine favors versatility over stability. Equipped with powerful mechanics under its undeniably attractive exterior, this promising rally car brings both performance and beauty to the rugged WRC.
