I'm pretty slow builder, but I've been busy several months now building this two models at the same time. Used to be a huge fan of Peugeot for many years and upon my research I found there are not so much of Peugeots build in LEGO! Especially, knowing how everyone like B-group rally cars. So decision was made to build the Peugeot I like the most - 205 Turbo 16 (T16). White model is Rally version (so called Evolution, not the initial version). Yellow model was used in Pikes Peaks, which uses some extra huge spoilers. Both models were built featuring as much as possible details you can do in Technic, without utilising any PF. The main features to mention: "Brick built" 4 cylinder in-line engine. double wishbone suspension on all wheels 4 wheel drive with central differential No differentials on each axle (thanks to Thirdwig for idea I found in your Audi) Opening hood, doors (lockable) and engine cover Switching from tarmac/asphalt setup to gravel is quite easy - you just need to use different attachment point for spring on a wishbone. Gravel-ready version is 2 studs higher with 62.4 wheels. Rally model features spare wheel under the hood and fuel filling places. First challenge was to built a hood of brick instead of liftarms so it could close while keeping the wheel inside. Other "brick" based challenge was the front and back with grills and lights. This was nightmare! Engine bay includes engine (how obvious!), exhaust system with turbo, intercooler and air filter. "Most important picture" not that important. All shafts are hidden inside the body, as in real car. The part I'm mostly proud of. It is a free form (in terms of Technic) but still sturdy enough to keep its form while operating an keeping removed from body. Oh, and I love that HUGE spoiler. Full roll cage is present as well. Pikes Peak version is one-sitter, while rally version has two seats. This tiny half pin keeps the door closed! More pictures on Flickr. I'm looking further to create a Dakar version too! not sure if white or yellow one thou. Stickers and building instructions for one of the models is something still in consideration. Hope you like it too!
