Not to be super picky but 1300L instead of 1300cc is a HUGE difference.

Btw. Carlos never ran a French flag on his roof intake. That was Auriol.

And Carlos will be driving a Peugeot 2008 in Argentina next January.

The GT will be used for the 2wd R3 class against Citroen's DS3 R3T.

Rallying needs it just as much as F1 and WEC. A hybrid system in place of pneumatic anti lag is paramount to keeping a flat torque curve. Anti lag through pneumatics is the same as drag racing with nitrous oxide. It feels very unnatural way of making power.

Same reason the French brands lobbied the FIA to allow the 1997 change to Group A8 regulations. Citroen, Peugeot, and Renault can't make a 4wd performance car so they have to be allowed to make kit cars like the ones currently in use. During the homoligation era, besides the Ford Cosworth and Lancia Delta, only the Japanese were making homoligation specials. Thats why from 1997 forward, you could make a kit car of whatever you wanted. It makes more sense to the brand.

Having hybrid systems like in F1 and WEC would make good sense for rally cars. Using an electrical system to replace a pneumatic anti lag for the turbo sounds much more logical for street cars development and race cars of the future.
