I take offense! smiley

This was a time when rally cars became so powerfull that people decided to stop the Group B serie, which was the playground of the legendary Peugeot 205 T16, Audi Quattro, Lancia Delta, ...

So Peugeot did not want to leave the cars in the garage, they decided to use them to kick american cars’ asses on the Pike’s Peak with the 205 T16 and 405 T16. Vatanen also won the Paris-Dakar 3 times in a Peugeot 405. See how Renault, Peugeot and Citroen are successful in any competition they do. I think they are trustworthy.

I think this dude does what few can. and with a peugeot. I for one do not trust french cars ( hope no frechie takes offence) but this 405 seems to be flying.

I’ve heared of this Ari Vatanen. Seems he was an excelent pilot back in the days.
