The Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Rally Car '85 (or 205 T16 Rally Car for short) is a Rally car produced by Peugeot. It appears in Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo PSP, Gran Turismo 5, and Gran Turismo 6.

The car appears to be the #2 driven by Ari Vatanen at the 1985 Monte Carlo Rally, who ended up finishing 1st in the rally and 4th overall in the Driver's Championship of the 1985 WRC season.

DescriptionEdit

"A revolutionary 4WD midship Group B machine that rocked the WRC."

The 205 Turbo 16 is Peugeot's Group B World Rally Championship machine. While both the name and looks indicate that it's a 205, the race version is a completely different beast on the inside. The production car's rear seats were ripped out and replace by a 1.8-liter DOHC turbocharged inline-4 that pumps out around 345 BHP to all four wheels. Allowing all this power to hook up properly was a double wishbone suspension system at all four corners.

The 205 Turbo 16 won its first three races. It also took the checkered flag in the first three races the following year, but Peugeot was not satisfied. So for the company's 20 special modified cars - modifications were permitted after producing 200 vehicles for Group B, Peugeot lightened the car's weight and boosted engine power. It also fitted huge wings, both front and back, to improve downforce. The result was the 205 Turbo 16 Evolution 2.

The 205 Turbo 16 won seven out of its first 12 races and seized the Constructor's Title. With five victories, Timo Salonen brought home the Driver's Championship. In the 1986 season, the 205 Turbo 16 won six out of 13 races, clinching its second consecutive Constructor's Championship. Juha Kankkunen, with three wins, won the Driver's Title. However, the Group B class was admonished at the end of the year, and the Peugeot 205 Turbo 16's racing days came to a premature end.
