The Peugeot Sport Academy driver took delivery of his new hot-hatch from Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot importers in Ireland, just as his 2014 sporting calendar had been announced.

The 23-year-old from Waterford is considered one of the best young rally drivers in the world.

Winner of the FIA WRC Academy 2011 and the SWRC 2012, Breen finished third in the 2013 ERC series in a Peugeot 207 S2000.

When not competing last year, Breen was testing the new-generation Peugeot 208 T16.

Peugeot Sport's eagerly-awaited new spearhead is currently undergoing final fine-tuning adjustments ahead of its homologation on March 1.

Breen has a very clear goal this year, aiming to win the European title in the new car.

As in 2013, Breen will contest eight rounds of the FIA-ERC, beginning with the Rally Liepaja (Latvia) in a 207 S2000 before the 208 T16's competition debut on the Acropolis Rally (Greece). His co-driver for the season is Scott Martin.

Breen's new Peugeot 208 GTi is a left-hand-drive model, which will allow more road-practice for the challenge ahead in his left-hand-drive 208 T16.

Retailing from €28,175 plus dealer delivery-related charges, the Peugeot 208 GTi is equipped with sports seats, leather steering wheel, aluminium effect sills and pedals, a GTi grille, double chrome exhaust tailpipe, 17" alloy wheels, front fog lamps, a 9.7" touchscreen, ESP, cruise control + speed limiter and auto lights and wipers.
