Volkswagen rally boss returns to run R division

One of the key figures behind Volkswagen's dominant return to the World Rally Championship (WRC) has been appointed managing director of the German manufacturer's ever-popular 'R' performance arm. Volkswagen has announced that, effective June 1, Jost Capito will head up Volkswagen R GmbH, despite leaving his post as Volkswagen’s director of motorsport in August 2016 to take up the position of CEO of McLaren Racing just one month later.

A $300,000 Peugeot 205?

Could this car be the most expensive production Peugeot ever? With a sticker price of £175,000 (AUD$300,000), this 1984 Peugeot 205 T16 presents a compelling case. One of just 200 homologation specials built in order for the French carmaker to compete in the World Rally Championship, the transverse mid-mounted 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine pumped out around 150kW to all four wheels.
