The Peugeot 208 Type R5 unveiled at Paris Motor Show 2012

After the 208 R2, Peugeot Sport is opening a new chapter in the sports variants of the Peugeot 208, and not least with the 208 Type R5. It is a true 'competition wildcat', and will supersede the 207 Super 2000, benchmark of the S2000 category as much for its technical
performance as for its sporting and commercial performance.

Announced at the end of 2011, the 208 Type R5 will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show on September 27 and on show until October 14. Its contours and its technical assets continue Peugeot's rallying tradition. 'Body built' for asphalt (tarmac) and loose-surfaces (gravel), the 208 Type R5 will compete in its first rallies and go on sale in the 2nd half of 2013 in order to be able to conquer the national and international championships the following season.
