We rarely feature digital creations here at TLCB. Today though we’re going to break our own rule, because this virtual Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Group B rally car is an absolute delight.
Built in the mid-1980s to race in the World Rally Championship, Peugeot’s monster mid-engined all-wheel-drive 205s won the final two Group B World Championships in ’85 and ’86, before the formula was banned.
This wonderful recreation of one of the most fearsome WRC cars ever is the work of newcomer Fabrice Larcheveque, who has replicated Peugeot Sport’s famous 1980s livery brilliantly in digital form, and has absolutely nailed the car that wears it too.
Fabrice has built several other iconic cars in LEGO’s Speed Champions style and you can see more of these, plus the Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 featured here, via MOCpages, plus you can also vote for the Peugeot to become the next officially-licensed car in the Speed Champions range via LEGO Ideas.
Awesome car! Awesome build!
I definitely encourage you, readers of the TLCB, to vote on the Ideas platform for this creation. It NEEDS to get the 10000!!! I personally did the first time I saw it, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I’m, like the builder and the car itself, from France 😉 Cheers.
Many thanks Little elves from TLCB,
As the creator of this little project I am so chuffed to have been selected for the front page of this prestigious Blog.
Not too much of a surprise but I have been a big fan of both Lego and cars for some times.
I wish this project would have existed 30 years ago, in my Golden age of Lego, as a little boy.
Unfortunately my attempts to recreate the glorious world of Rally cars was not so successful then (maybe because the choice of parts was quite limited, leaving more place for the imagination)
Anuway, back to present times, I have already received a lot of votes on The Lego ideas website from a wide community of Lego, Rally and Peugeot fans (sometimes my supporters combining these 3 passions). This mobilisation has been truly amazing!
Of course there is still a long road to get this little project become a reality (hopefully).
So feel free, dear TLCB readers, to give your support on the Lego Idea Website, if you really like the idea. I have reattached the link in case.
And please, please! continue to bring great concepts and ideas on 2, 3, 4 or more wheels
Last but not least, this is just a beginning and will bring more car projects from this Great Group B era. Promise the next one will not be French and, hopefully will appeal as much as this little Pug.
