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 the podium.
