How versatile this guy really is? Not only is he one of the fastest drivers out there, but he also has the looks to go with the speed, or so the ladies say. So Peugeot and Citroën have no reason to look further than just call him to do a photo or video shoot for them, instead of hiring models. Of course, it also helps if you can actually drive a 875 HP / 875 kg car up the curvy mountain road!
As we wait for Peugeot and Citroën to come up with similar video opportunity for Seb’s illustrious co-driver Daniel Elena, we can enjoy the official video Peugeot made during recent Pikes Peak test session on Mont Ventoux in France.
What I find most fascinating about this video, and the whole project, is the amount of respect Seb shows towards the car – you don’t see his usual WRC calmness, instead, his eyes and face depict a slightly different mood, working hard to understand the wild beast in his hands. Great video.
Reminder, it’s June 30th we’re looking for to see what Mr. Loeb and Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak can do on that American mountain.
