PEUGEOT 205 TURBO 16
It may have looked like a 205, but the only thing that the T16 shared with the normal road car was the window frames. It's mid-engined (obviously), turbocharged, four-wheel drive, and at 400bhp, nearly four times the power of the original Peugeot 205 GTI. Jeremy once described it as ‘a formula one car with mudflaps' and he was, er, completely wrong. You could buy a road-going version for a start, albeit detuned. But in his defence, it went like one, and on to become the most successful Group B car ever.
