100th Peugeot 207 S2000 sold!

Since its launch in 2007, the Peugeot 207 Super 2000 has emerged as a benchmark in its class. This January saw Peugeot Sport deliver its 100th car!

The sale of the 100th 207 S2000 makes it the best-selling rally car to have been designed and developed by Peugeot Sport, ahead of such icons as the 205 T16. The 100th car is the property of the French team Sainteloc and made its competitive debut on the Rallye Monte-Carlo.

The 207 Super 2000 has been exported to a long list of countries, from Europe to the Middle East, and even as far afield as South Africa.

The Peugeot 207 Super 2000, which was designed and developed by Peugeot Sport under the leadership of Bertrand Vallat, has claimed a high number of titles and individual rally wins, on all types of surface and across a comprehensive spectrum of conditions. It has secured crowns in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge and in several national championships, and has also won such prestigious events as the Sanremo and the Tour de Corse, as well as last year’s Rallye Monte-Carlo!

There is every probability that this impressive record will continue to grow thanks to the latest evolutions that Peugeot Sport has made available to its customers for the 2012 season. Frédéric Bertrand (Manager of Peugeot Sport’s Customer Competition Department) commented on the occassion: “It is rare for a single model to notch up such a successful record. This year will be the car’s sixth season and it still packs the potential to win rallies. We will closely follow and advise our customers, especially since many of them are targeting title success in a variety of championships in 2012.”
