What happens when you put 875 horsepower 3.2-liter biturbocharged V6 in a 1929 pound carbon fiber car? This.

This car is ready to tackle 12 miles of strenuous steep roads for the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb–and it's got everything it needs to win. The car is equipped with special Michelin tires, a ridiculously light body frame, a power to weight ratio of 1:1 [holy mackerel], a six-speed sequential gearbox, four-wheel drive and so much more details to help make the car destroy its opponents. The engine is mounted near the mid-rear for better center of gravity. All of these improvements to the car make it go to 149 mph in ~ 7 seconds. That's almost how long the 2012 Fiat Abart takes to get to 60 mph! I can't even think of the pride that the Peugeot Sport Division engineers must have after accomplishing such a thing.

It will be driven by world WRC champion SĂ©bastien Loeb.
