The French from Peugeot have recently unveiled the rally version 208, a vehicle which is dubbed the R2 and represents the “ideal choice for those who want to get their first taste of rallying or simply enjoy their passion.”

The 208 R2 looks pretty similar to the regular version 208 that was launched in Europe in April, with some of the features differentiating the two including the rally specific livery, the sports tuned suspension that uses three-way adjustable dampers, plus a bespoke, adjustable hydraulic bump stop developed in association with our supplier Ohlins, a hydraulic steering system and new brakes that use single Alcon callipers.

These are two models featuring motorsport kits, which aim towards ‘budget conscious buyers’.

The Twingo Renaultsport R1 Trophy uses a 133 HP 1.6-litre engine and a gearbox identical to the ones found on the production model, but features ‘essential safety equipment’ and can participate on all regional, national and international rallies.
