The 905 Evo dominated Le Mans in 1993, taking overall victory with Geoff Brabham, Éric Hélary, and Christophe Bouchut behind the wheel. Aside from being quick, it also sounds incredible.

Behind the cabin sits a 3.5-liter V-10 engine making over 640 horsepower at 12,500 RPM. If it sounds familiar to you, there's a reason: Peugeot took the engine to Formula 1 after Le Mans, developing for use with McLaren. The powertrain wasn't as competitive as it was in endurance racing, but it sounded just as good.
