Ari Vatanen’s 205 rally car for sale

Published 03 February 2016

A Peugeot 205 rally car driven by Ari Vatanen will go under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s Monaco sale in May. The Turbo 16 Evolution 1 Group B could fetch up to £604,000 when it heads to auction on 14 May.

The car is one of the most iconic and successful Group B rally cars of its era, winning both the 1985 Monte Carlo and Swedish rally. Chassis number C11 was one of just three Works cars entered into the WRC by Peugeot Talbot Sport, from a total of 20 Works Evolution 1 rally cars ever made.

Its two victories helped propel Peugeot to claim the world championship that year. Vatanen also used the car to recce the Tour de Corse and Acropolis rallies later in the year, before its final outing with Bruno Saby at the Sanremo rally.

I wonder who buys these cars and what they do with them? Are they bought and used? Or are they just put into storage in a private collection?
