Peugeot 207 S16 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Kris Meeke is the 2009 Intercontinental Rally Champion, and Peugeot UK wants to celebrate that accomplishment. As such, it's releasing the 207 S16 – a 207 Sport tarted up to evoke the Peugeot 207 IRC car Meeke pilots. To that extent, you can get an optional graphics package (which is still more restrained than race car's nose-to-tail Union Jack livery), along with a body kit including "pseudo rear diffuser" (Peugeot's words), upgraded wheels, a mesh grille, tinted glass and special interior badging. All 250 Peugeot 207 S16s are mechanically identical to the regular 207 Sport 1.6 VTi they're based on. Oh, and Kris Meeke signs every one. If you're in the UK, owning the 207 S16 will dent your wallet to the tune of £14,695. The full press release is pasted after the jump.

THE PEUGEOT 207 S16 FULL OF VERVE ON THE ROAD AND OFF
  • Only 250 Peugeot 207 S16s will be produced
  • Powered by a 1.6 litre 120 bhp VTi petrol engine
  • £1,200 of additional specification compared to a standard Sports model
  • On-the-road price £14,695
Peugeot's 207 has dominated the Intercontinental Rally Challenge for the last three years, whether on the gravel roads of Scotland or the tarmac of San Remo.

To recognise this achievement and that of Kris Meeke in winning the 2009 IRC drivers' title, Peugeot has created the Special Edition 207 S16.

Based on the 207 Sport 1.6 VTi 3dr, only 250 examples of this car will be produced. The S16 adds to the already comprehensive standard equipment of the 207 sport model:
  • Bianca White exterior body colour
  • Full 207 RC Cup bodykit comprising front and rear spoilers, side skirts and a pseudo rear diffuser
  • 17" Hockenheim Alloy Wheels
  • SP Sports mesh grille
  • Dark tinted rear windows from the 207 GTi model
  • Special interior badge signed by Kris Meeke
  • Optional free of charge vinyl rally graphics which mimic those found on Kris Meeke's IRC winning 207 S2000 rally car.
The 207 S16 benefits from over £1,200 worth of additional specification compared to a standard Sport model and is priced at £14,695.

To further enhance the appeal of the 207 S16 an optional leather interior is also available priced at £684.21. It is available in black with either black or silver Grey stitching.

      what's with peugeut and it's "feline face" design? so fugly.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ummm....just a guess, but perhaps a nod to the "lion" that's their symbol? :-)

      Looks like a Mazda
        • 4 Years Ago
        Uhh, Peugeot has had the "smiling guppy" look way before Mazda.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Looks like the new Ford Fiesta to me.

      It looks like a winner, but it isn't. It's not that fast, and a little bit overweight. The car have got a 1.6l In-line 4 with 120 bhp. It have also the same engine as the BMW 1-series and the Mini Cooper / S, but that cars have a turbocharger on it, which deliver then 175 bhp, and 211 bhp in the Cooper S Works.

      im visiting london right now and i just saw a transporter full of these yesterday on the M25. i was like "what the heck were those?" and here is the answer on autoblog! better than wiki!!

      Should have made a GTI RC...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like this a lot.

      Everyone complains, but I like it. Small hot hatches and sports cars SHOULD look a little crazy, in my opinion, and this one looks insane: fit to jump off the back of a whale, through a hoop of fire to be swooped up by a giant griffin, and all while yelling "YEEEEAHHHHH!!!"

      I like that.

      ThunderCats - HO!

      The advert for this is on the back of this week's Autocar and I find it funny it says the graphics are provided FOC. Right, so if you don't want to buy it because of the stripes, why the heck would you buy a white 120bhp 207 in the first place? It's not like the grille and diffuser are that nice to look at and you could probably get the 17" wheels off of a crashed GTI anyway.

      This is the kind of car in which you look cool until one asks you to go on the gas...

      Srsly this is for poseurs only, gimme a Renaultsport Clio 200 instead.
