The New Peugeot Rally Car Shows PotentialOn 16 May, 2006, the 207 Super 2000 fired into life for the first time, watched closely by Bruno Famin, Technical Manager of Peugeot Sport and Bertrand Vallat, Project Manager for the 207 Super 2000. It now follows in the footsteps of the other great Peugeot Rally cars of old, such as the 205 T16 and the all conquering 206 WRC, winner of three world rally championships and a total of 65 podiums.
The car then immediately started a series of tests on both loose surface and then on tarmac. The drivers entrusted wîth the development of the car are Bryan Bouffier, Sebastian Lindholm and Gilles Panizzi.
Bertrand Vallat, Project Manager, commented: 'To start wîth on the loose surface, the 207 Super 2000 showed a good level of reliability which was confirmed again on tarmac some weeks later. We are only at the initial stages of development but all the test drivers who have followed each other behind the wheel of the car have been satisfied wîth both the handling and performance.'
