Get side-winding with these 10 rally cars from Leclere

With the World Rally Championship now well underway, along with the media frenzy surrounding the return of world’s most successful rally driver Sébastien Loeb this past week in Mexico, auction house Leclere is bringing the rally cars to you at its annual Avignon Motor Festival sale on 25 March…

Rally legends

Fancy yourself a bit of a Colin McRae or a Sébastien Loeb, but all your missing is the machine to get you around the rally stages? Lucky for you, Leclere has a selection of 10 rally racers ready to power slide and handbrake around the world. If you’re looking to channel your inner World Champion, there may be no better car than the Ford Focus RS that was raced by double World Champion Carlos ‘El Matador’ Sainz in 2002 (est. 210,000–260,000 euros). But if getting behind the same wheel as an iconic racer isn’t thrilling enough, what about getting behind one built by an iconic Italian race car manufacturer? You can have your pick between the 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB Group 4 (165,000–195,000 euros) and the 1976 Fiat Abarth 131 Rally (180,000–280,00 euros). Prefer the road over the winding tracks, but still want a machine with the rally aesthetic? The Lancia Delta Evo 2 ‘Edizione Finale’ in its iconic Amaranth Red paint finish with Yellow stripes (80,000–90,000 euros) most definitely fills that order. You can find all 10 rally racers from Leclere’s Avignon Motor Festival sale listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market.
