Introduce yourself and your car:
I’m Jose Francisco Ruiz, known in the motor world as “Paquillo”, and I’m driving a Peugeot 205 Maxi.
Tell us about the modifications done to your car:
It’s a powerful car with around 200 horsepower after modifications we made. It was originally a GTi, but we transformed it into a Maxi. It has a Citroen Xsara VTS 2000 16V engine .
As a production car the engine has 167 horsepower, but after modifications and electronics, we reach 200 horsepower.
With all work done, we got great power and a great torque curve. The torque curve is very important for racing.

Its performance is so good, so reliable, and with such a great sound you’ll listen to today!
