Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Peugeot 205 T16 Evo2 Monte Carlo 1986 Alternative version PFL24102 Corsica Audi proved the worth of four-wheel drive in rallying with the Quattro but the next quantum leap in rally car development came in 1984 with the arrival of Peugeotís 205 T16, a car which looked outwardly like their production shopping trolley but which in reality only shared lights and a few trim pieces. By 1986 the Evo 2 version of the car had serious competition from the Lancia S4 but still won six of the eleven rounds in the championship and the title for Juha Kankkunen. The well cast resin parts provide plenty of detail with the rear body section, doors and bonnet all cast separately. There is some suspension detail and a full engine with all of its turbo plumbing in the rear allowing some scope here for personalising your model with extra wiring etc. The most obvious difference between the parts for Monte Carlo and Corsica is the style of the wheels but there are also a few subtle changes under the skin, so pay careful attention to the instructions. Each kit offers three decal options with Salonen and Saby on both events joined by Kankkunen on the Monte and Mouton in Corsica.
