1984 Peugeot 205 T16 For Sale

Under the management of Jean Todt, the factory Peugeot 205 Turbo 16s (T16) rally cars were the most successful cars of the late Group B era, becoming constructors and drivers champions in 1985 and 1986 driven by Timo Salonen and Juha Kankkunen.

Peugeot were required to build 200 roadgoing versions for homologation to compete in the World Rally Championship (WRC). Not surprisingly the roadgoing T16 had little in common with the workaday production 205 and instead shared the transverse mid-engine, four-wheel drive layout of the rally car along with wide wheel arches, huge airscoops and a rear clamshell section which lifted up to give full access to the engine compartment.

The engine was a 1.8 turbocharged four cylinder unit based on the cast iron diesel block of the XU family but with a 16 valve head. The motor produced 197 horsepower and was mounted where the rear seats would normally be. Transmission was via 4 wheel drive (power was adjustable front to rear) with epicyclic centre differential and viscous coupling system and the gearbox was a Citroen XM unit mounted transversely.

Construction was based on a very stiff tubular design and the body was built under contract by Heuliez from heavily modified standard three door monocoques. The rear of the standard bodyshells was cut off and replaced with a firewall that was welded in between the B-pillars. The rear frame comprised sheet steel and tubes and more tubes carried the front suspension. The completed road car bodies were delivered to Simca (Talbot) for completion. All road versions were left hand drive and finished in grey with two-tone grey interior except the first car which was white with rally decals.

The T16 is the ultimate rally-bred homologation special from the 1980’s and we are delighted to present one of the 200 homologation versions for sale here. Finished in Dark Charcoal Grey but with grey leather interior, this example is understood to have been delivered new to the Japanese market. The current owner (who previously lived and worked in Japan) knew the car for many years and was purchased by him in 1995 (after he had returned to the UK), his ownership has thus spanned 24 years and as an accomplished engineer he has personally overseen the maintenance ever since.

On file are MOTs dating back to 1995 when it had just 502kms on the odometer and its mileage is tracked through the years bringing it to the current reading of just 8,800kms (c.5,500 miles) making this one of the lowest mileage examples we have seen. There is also a copy of an October 2004 version of Retro Cars magazine where it not only featured but was the cover car and there are copies of the Owner’s Handbook, Technical Description, Spare Parts catalogue, Service supplement and Workshop Manual. Additionally there are some large scale T16 technical drawings and it should be noted that this car also featured in Duke Marketing’s ‘too fast to RACE’ video/ DVD.

Recently driven over 100 miles to ourselves and in wholesomely delightful condition throughout we can’t recommend it enough!
