Peugeot has an extensive and celebrated history, producing vehicles since 1890 with more than 65 million built. It won the first-ever recorded motor sport event in 1894 to establish a reputation for durability and efficiency. Now, more than a century later for the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Peugeot is planning a display that will give visitors plenty to experience while demonstrating how the company’s sporting achievements have led to the high-performing and efficient road cars of today.
At the Goodwood Moving Motor Show (Thursday, 25th June) Peugeot will assemble its latest product developments and visitors can experience the new 208 ‘GTi by Peugeot Sport’, the 308 ‘GT Line’ powered by the accomplished 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engine and the new performance-focused 308 GT. A display of the latest Peugeot Sport models is also planned and the awesome 500hp 308 R HYbrid makes its European debut as a glimpse into the future. If that isn’t enough there will be another 308 world premiere.*
On the main stand, located centrally among manufacturer showrooms, Peugeot has on display a highlight of models from its illustrious past, present and future. Featuring is the all-conquering 205 T16 that celebrates winning the World Rally Championship 30-years ago. Modern-day competition vehicles displayed include the2008 DKR Dakar-endurance with the 208 T16 WRX (FIA World RallyX) car.
The 2015 range of Peugeot cars is on display and includes performance-inspired products like the 308 GT, new 208 ‘GTi by Peugeot Sport’. Also of interest on the main stand for gamers is the chance to compete on the just launched Grand Turismo 6 Peugeot Vision GT.
For the Goodwood Festival of Speed (Friday to Sunday, 26th – 28th June) three significant cars are running up the famous hill climb. One is currently secret*. Another is the 205 T16 celebrating its WRC success 30 years ago. The third is the 404 Diesel which 50 years ago this month set 40 world endurance records at the Montlhéry circuit near Paris and in the process set about establishing Peugeot as the defined producer of durable and efficient compact diesel engine cars.

The PEUGEOT 205 was launched on 24th February 1983 and the performance 205 GTi in April 1984. At the same time PEUGEOT launched a mini supercar that was to change the complexion of rallying forever. That car was the 205 T16 and 30 years ago this October it lifted the first of PEUGEOT’s five World Rally Championships.
The car was designed from a blank piece of paper with the sole aim of beating the best in the business over the world’s rally stages. PEUGEOT Sport boss Jean Todt was given carte blanche with the project. He recruited the best engineers available and had access to all the research and development facilities available to the PSA Group.
The new car had to conform to the FIA’s (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) Group B rules. Although demanding that 200 road-going versions should be built, the regulations had few restrictions on design, technology and materials. As a result the 205 T16 was four-wheel drive and based around a transversely mounted mid-engined layout. Although petrol-powered, it uses a cast iron 1.7-litre diesel engine block. This was turbocharged and equipped with a specially developed 16-valve cylinder head, hence the name T16.
Materials and thinking that were then state-of-the-art are used throughout. The prop shafts are carbon fibre and unlike rivals which used glass fibre bodywork, the 205 T16’s is Kevlar. That bodywork is in the shape of the 205 but wider, while the rear bodywork is a single unit that lifts off for access to the engine and gearbox.
The result is a car that won three of its first five rallies in 1984 in the hands of Ari Vatanen. The following year a second evolution of the 205 T16 came out with Timo Salonen taking the drivers’ title and PEUGEOT the manufacturers’ championship. For 1986, PEUGEOT again did the double with Juha Kankkunen crowned champion. It was PEUGEOT’s renowned attention to engineering detail that helped the 205 T16’s phenomenal success. For example, versions that competed in the sweltering Safari Rally had a water spray that the co-driver operated with his foot to cool suspension components.
For all its brilliance the 205 T16 couldn’t prevent the demise of Group B ahead of 1987. But it retired as the most successful car of its kind, winning 16 rounds of the World Rally Championship. It is also one of the most evocative and an example will be taking to the hill at Goodwood, driven by its owner Enda Garvey.
He said: “The model I’ll be driving is a second evolution car and it’s very light (around 900kg) with 650hp – so it’s an exciting drive. But there’s so much power you can pull yourself out of tricky situations as quickly as you get into them. The car’s agility and the quality of the engineering on it are its main assets I would say. Everything is very well thought out with amazing attention to detail; when PEUGEOT Sport does something, it clearly does it properly.”
PEUGEOT’S INCREDIBLE RECORD-BREAKING 404 DIESEL RUNS AGAIN – EXACTLY FIFTY YEARS ONOne-off PEUGEOT showcased diesel’s capabilities years ahead of its timeWorld’s first ‘performance diesel’ is back in action at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015 hillclimbStandard engine averaged 100mph in three-day 7,300-mile record marathon
Today’s widespread acceptance of diesel engines in passenger cars is at least partly due to a very special PEUGEOT. In the summer of 1965, a one-off 404 Diesel lifted 40 international speed and endurance records. It was an incredible achievement. However, the PEUGEOT engineers responsible probably didn’t realise quite how much influence their efforts would have on the outstanding reputation on mainstream motoring for years to come.
Employing diesel engines in performance cars is fairly common now but in 1965 PEUGEOT was the first manufacturer to implement this. The result was the 404 Diesel record car and 50 years ago to the month, it will be back in action at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over 26th – 28th June.
Fifty years on from its record-breaking exploits this PEUGEOT remains a stunning feat of engineering. Yet despite its heavily modified appearance, beneath that bright blue bodywork lies a mostly standard PEUGEOT Indenor XD88 diesel engine.
The 1948cc four cylinder diesel engine has a compression ratio of 21:1 to help maximise efficiency, with peak power is 84bhp at 4,500rpm. Naturally-aspirated (where modern-day cars all tend to have forced (turbo) charged induction and only a four-speed gearbox, drivers commented on how smooth the engine drives – contrary to the uncultured reputation diesel engines held at the time.
The 404 Diesel is based on a 404 Cabriolet with the original roof and windscreen removed and a purpose-built, aircraft-like bubble added to cover the driver. The result is a tightly curved screen and therefore reduced frontal area, while the rear window is recessed in between a pair of buttresses, all optimised elementary aerodynamics. The bumpers have been removed to help smooth wind flowing over and around the car while the only rear-view mirror is housed in the cockpit. Weight has been reduced inside by adapting components such as the steering column and the windscreen wiper motor.
The 404 Diesel established 22 records at the Montlhéry race track on the outskirts of Paris between June 11 and 14, 1965. Over those three days, the 404 Diesel was driven on the track for the entire time as five drivers conducted a succession of three-hour shifts.
During those 72 hours, the 404 Diesel covered a considerable 7,267.08 miles (11,627.329kms) at an average speed of 100.93mph (161.49kph). That was a new record for a Class E diesel car, as was 5,000 miles in 49 hours, 51 minutes and 30.14 seconds at an average of 100.87mph, (161.39kph) and 10,000km (6,250 miles) in 61 hours, 55 minutes and 4.08 seconds.
Other records the 404 Diesel broke included covering 101.20 miles (161.929km) in an hour, 1,000 miles covered in 9 hours 57 minutes and 9.22 seconds and 4,844.66 miles (7,751.457km) travelled in 48 hours at an average speed of 100.9mph (161.49kph).
However, that remarkable 72 hours wasn’t the end of this car’s exploits. A month later in July, fitted with an experimental 2,163cc engine, the PEUGEOT 404 lifted another 18 world records for speed and endurance in the Class D for compression ignition (diesel) engines. In perfect running order to this day, the 404 Diesel remains the sole example of a car that proved to a generation of drivers that diesel power had a future, beyond taxis, tractors and trucks, and in the process PEUGEOT became renowned for producing durable, capable and efficient compact diesel powered vehicles.
TODAY’S DIESEL ENGINES CONTINUE TO USE THE VERY LATEST TECHNOLOGY
Since 2007, the brand has applied the FAP widely, generalising its use across the range, well before the Euro5 standard imposed its application to all Diesel vehicles sold in Europe from January 2011. Since the end of 2013, the Brand has been using the new BlueHDi technology which provides a drastic reduction in the emissions of nitrous oxides. Uniquely associating SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and a particulate filter with additive, it allows the NOx emissions from new generation Diesel engines to be reduced by up to 90%, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to be optimised, while still eliminating 99.9% of particulates.
The BlueHDi offers two key advantages:SCR, allowing engine settings to be optimised for the best fuel consumption and specific performance, contrary to the emissions control solutions that operate at source and NOx traps, which adversely affect fuel consumption and CO2 emissions;the installation of the SCR upstream of the FAP with additive allows faster treatment of emissions from engine start-up.
The BlueHDi technology already comfortably meets the Euro 6 Diesel emissions standard and will be progressively introduced on all of the brand’s Diesel models and presents the best potential for meeting future emissions standards.
The Brand has been continuously innovative – with many notable firsts:
1810 Peugeot Brand was formed producing metal cutting / shaping implements – saws and chisels
1889 The steam-driven Serpollet-Peugeot automobile was the first and only one was produced
1890 The first internal-combustion Peugeot was a Type 2 powered by a Panhard-Daimler engine*
1934 Introduction of the world’s first retractable hardtop car with the 401 Éclipse
1935 Production of the 202, 302 and 402 all featured the Airflow-inspired aerodynamic style
1972 104 was the smallest five-door car in the world when launched
2003 The 206 was the first diesel supermini to be equipped with a particulate filter
1912 Georges Boillot driving a Peugeot with the first four-valve per cylinder engine (with Double OverHead Camshaft – DOHC 4-cylinder 7.6-litre) won the French Grand Prix and was the first to repeat success winning again in 1913
