1997 Peugeot 406 Supertourisme
- Showcase car for technical expertise
- Champion of France and Germany
- Completely overhauled car
- Ex Laurent Aïello, Juan Manuel Fangio junior, William David
With the new 406, which appeared in 1995, Peugeot sought to demonstrate
that the saloon could not only perform well as a road car, but also on the
track. The firm from Sochaux decided to try its hand in the rigorous German
Championship. This is where the car we are offering first entered the
scene. It was prepared to compete in the German Supertouring Championship
for the 1997 season.
The chassis was built by Peugeot Sport: major work was carried out on the
body with the installation of a multi-tubular roll cage, front and rear
competition suspension and Brembo 8 piston disc brakes. Work on the engine
was carried out by renowned preparer PIPO: the 2-litre block with aluminium
head produced 310 bhp and was mated with a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The
owner has told us that this 406 Supertourisme then made its debut in 1997,
driven by Laurent Aïello, up against the official BMW and Audi entries.
With jaw-dropping results: in its first season, the car won the coveted
competition. The following year, it finished second in the SUDAM
championship in Latin America, driven by Juan Manuel Fangio Junior (the
nephew...). The car finished off an amazing career in the French
Championnat Supertourisme, again performing with brio. This time, William
David won the Championship title in 1999 and 2000.
Here is a genuine factory car, with an outstanding racing provenance that
has shown it is capable of terrific performances. It deserves its place on
Dramatic STW Final 1999 - Title Decider
The classic STW final race of 1999 at the Nurburgring. This decided the
championship that year. During the last lap of the race at Nurburgring, Uwe
Alzen, Christian Abt's main rival for the championship was leading, with
Abt 2nd. As they reached the chicane Alzen was coming up to lap Abt's
teammate Kris Nissen and they both crashed. Abt was now in the lead but at
the last corner, Alzen's teammate Roland Asch, who was right behind the
trio and had already been black flagged in the race, crashed into Abt,
taking him out. Alzen limped to the checkered flag in 2nd place and handing
him the championship. But not for long as several weeks later, an amateur
video proved that Asch crashed into Abt deliberately, and as a result, the
DMSB, the German governing body sanctioning the STW annulled the last lap
of the race, handing the championship back to Abt.
1993 Peugeot 405 Supertourisme
- One of the first 405 Super Tourings
- Vice-Champion in Italy in 1993, and many podiums in France
- Always well prepared, in good condition
- Ex Fabrizio Giovanardi, William David and David Hallyday
The Peugeot 405 was launched in 1987. It would take some years for the
finalization of the FIA "Super Touring" category and it takes a while for
the manufacturers to invest into developing car for this category. It was
into the Italian Superturismo championship that the French carmaker decided
to get into through its Italian subsidiary in 1993, and this was one of the
cars. The engine of this 405 is a 2-liter 16-valver put together by OBIS
and the engine develops a whopping 300bhp. The preparation of the body was
entrusted to the famous Italtechnica outfit which prepares racing machines
of the highest level, so much so that by season's end, Fabrizio Giovanardi,
with this car, ranked second in the championship. Back in France for the
subsequent season, it was another 405, in the hands of Laurent Aiello, that
went on to win the Championship of France in 1994. The car then passed into
the hands of drivers Masson and Giradot, who drove the car to the third
place in the Coupe de France de Supertourisme. This 405 then kept being
campaigned in subsequent seasons of the French Championship, till 1998 when
it is campaigned by William David and David Hallyday. The car had a second
life in the French Championship Touring Car B group with Arnaud Gomez at
the wheel, with a win in 2001. Acquired by its current owner in 2002, this
405 Super Touring is now painted yellow, and is on offer in excellent
condition, works perfectly well.
