Peugeot has unveiled the 207 S16 Special Edition for the United Kingdom. The S16 was created based on the 207 Sport 1.6 VTi three-door design. This creation is meant to celebrate Kris Meeke’s win of the 2009 IRC drivers’ title. As such, the car has rally-inspired graphics (which came from Meeke’s IRC winning 207 S2000 rally car), a 207 RC Cup bodykit (with front and rear spoilers, aerodynamic side skirts, and a faux rear diffuser), and a cool interior badge signed by Meeke. Other styling touches include a mesh grille, dark tinted windows, and 17-inch Hockenheim alloy wheels.

However, the S16 does not feature any performance upgrades other than the racy appearance. It works with an anemic 1.6-liter VTi petrol engine that produces 120 bhp (kW), which could runs from 0-62 mph in 10.7 seconds and has a top speed of 125 mph. Although its performance does not top the best, it definitely scores well as a city car since the engine returns a combined 47.1 mpg and has an emissions rating of 139 g/km.Priced from £14,695 and only 250 special editions will be produced.
