Peugeot 205 Rallye - best ever Peugeot Sport cars

The original Peugeot Rallye was initially available only as a left-hand-drive model and powered by a 1,294cc 102bhp four-cylinder

The original Peugeot Rallye was initially available only as a left-hand-drive model and powered by a 1,294cc 102bhp four-cylinder. But it wasn’t the engine that grabbed the headlines; it was the manufacturer’s approach to increasing the car’s performance without adding power.

This was achieved by removing every piece of trim deemed surplus to requirements, including stripping the cabin of its sound deadening and radio – resulting in a 794kg kerbweight. The 205 Rallye was a little coarse for many, but was the ultimate in lightweight Peugeots.
