Video: Loeb drives Pikes Peak

He’s finally met the course in his bonkers Peugeot 208…

When a rally driver says ‘I cannot go much faster,' chances are he probably, y'know, can't. And that's precisely what Sebastien Loeb came out with after driving the 850kg, 850bhp Peugeot 2018 T16 at Pikes Peak for the first time last week.

Which begs the question, just how fast is Loeb going in this video? The current record for the 4,720-foot, 12.42-mile ascent is 09:46.164 (set last year by Rhys Millen). Reckon he'll beat it come race day on June 30?

Now share it...
