Description

Racing car only
without engine
Prestigious history
Period-correct decoration
Potential for competition

During the 90s, car racing was still a popular way for manufacturers to promote their new products. As soon as the 406 came out, Peugeot decided to enter the German Supertourism, the most competitive championship of the moment. Financed by Esso and built by Peugeot Sport, the 406 had more than 300 hp, weighed less than 1,000 kg. Ready for the 1996 season, they took third place in their first participation before crushing the competition in 1997. The 406s were also entered in the BTCC and the Belgian Touring Championship, before being exported to South America and France, where they all proved to be competitive. The example we present today is the ST31 chassis, which won the title in the South American Supertourism Championship, otherwise called the Cup of Nations, in 1999 in the hands of Brazilian driver Cacá Bueno. It still sports its 1999 colors, with period-correct sponsors and signature yellow-and-blue paint job. The engine, the gearbox and the brake calipers are missing. Here is a unique opportunity to acquire a factory car.

This car will be sold by auction by AGUTTES Auction House, in Sochaux, at the Aventure Peugeot Museum, France, on September the 20th, 2020.
