Peugeot 205 Hillclimber

A few months ago I took a step forward in this little hobby of ours and bought myself a Mig welder. Since then I’ve made a few custom parts and brackets, added some new metal to my radiator support panel, and even helped a mate plug up some holes in his engine bay. I was starting to feel pretty proud of my accomplishments; then I received an email from Cameron about his Peugeot 205 build and I came crashing back down to reality. You see, Cameron studied Motorsport Engineering and now works for Ford in the UK as a suspension systems engineer, so he knows a thing or two about how cars work, especially his Peugeot 205. The plan for this little hatch is a space-frame chassis with double wishbone and push-rod suspension, front engine (ish), rear wheel drive, ~350bhp and carbon panels for a target weight of 600kg including the driver. Be sure to keep an eye out for an update in the future when the car is closer to completion.

  1. Awesome build! It’s so much when better when you post builds that are threads rather than just gallerys as it tells a much better story! More like this please!

  2. I know what you mean, Dave. I wish all the builds I featured were like this. I have to work with what’s out there.

  3. I’ve been following this build since you first featured it on here and am saddened to see that the build will no longer be updated on the website due to Cameron being banned it seems?

  4. Any idea what happened to the thread? Still on that forum but it has been closed, is there a blog for it at all?

  5. How / why I got banned from 205 drivers is a loooooong story but it had been coming for some time!

    For everyone interested, the build is now up on PistonHeads and that’s where I’ll do all the really detailed stuff. Uphill Racers is a brilliant forum, but the 4 pic per post limit means I can’t add as much detail as I’d like to.

    The new thread can be found here:
