Utter dedication, determination, skill, and lots of courage it seems is what it takes to break the Pikes Peak Hill Climb world record. Oh, and a 652kW road rocket. With World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb behind the wheel, these were the exact ingredients Peugeot and Red Bull Racing used during this year’s event.
Below is the full video of Loeb making that famous climb over the weekend in a record-breaking time of 8:13.878. There’s no commentary, no music or sound effects, and minimal editing. This is pure unadulterated performance car bliss. Grab yourself a drink and sit back, relax, and enjoy.
