The Peugeot 207 ‘RCup’ Concept Car presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March gave clues to the future 207 Super 2000 rally car.


Now the next Peugeot Rally Car has completed its initial development stages on both loose and tarmac surfaces.

The 207 Super 2000 recently fired into life for the first time, watched 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 with a total of 65 podium finishes.

The car then immediately started a series of tests on both loose surface and then on tarmac. The drivers entrusted with the development of the car are Bryan Bouffier, Sebastian Lindholm and Gilles Panizzi.

Bertrand Vallat, Project Manager, commented: “To start with 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 with both the handling and performance.”

The Peugeot 207 Super 2000 will be available for customers to campaign in national championships.
