The Peugeot 206 started its competitive life in WRC in 2000 and incredibly took the constructors title for the following 3 years. It is a very compact machine and is driven by a 2 litre turbo charged engine, it has 4WD with a longitudinal transmission. The differentials are active electronically controlled units to the front, centre and rear of the car.

The 2003 season saw the car change its livery from the silver of previous seasons to a striking bright red in-line with their new main sponsor Marlboro. There were improvements made to the active anti-roll bar which utilizes electronically controlled hydraulics to limit the roll of the car during cornering. The team also employed the last two WRC World Champions as its drivers, current WRC champion Marcus Grönholm and 2001 WRC champion the late Richard Burns. 2003 did not bring any silverware to Peugeot as Burns finished 4th and Grönholm 6th with Peugeot taking 2nd in the Manufacturers table.

The car was essentially built almost 'out of the box' however I used the excellent Crazy Modeler detail set which made a huge improvement in terms of extra details. Unfortunately the Tamiya base kit is inaccurate in terms of depicting the actual car from 2003.
