The car will run in the event's Unlimited class, and will carry the number 208. The car will be unveiled next month, when its final specifications are announced.
Peugeot has previously won the event twice. Ari Vatanen’s 1988 record-breaking win in a 405 T16 was recorded in the film Climb Dance. The following year, Bobby Unser took another 405 to the top of the podium.
The Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak car is the latest in a line of 208 competition cars, which already includes the 208 T16, the 208 R2, the 208 Racing Cup and the 208 GTi Peugeot Sport.
