    The 405 was actually based on the 205, that's why they look alike. I can't remember now but the 405 was either built specifically for hillclimbing or it was going to take over from the 205 in Group B.

    The S1 did hold the record at Pikes Peak for many years but I think that record has since been broken. I'm not sure though, I'm not all that big into hillclimbing.

    by the looks of this one it was built for hillclimb.cos the wing n the back it about 2 foot taller than the car and wider, not sure it was allowed in rally like that.<!-- Signature -->

    This 405 was only made for Pikes Peak.

    The engine was a very tuned version of the one in the 405 MI 16.(4 inline 160hp)

    The 405 rally raid was based on the 205 T16.

    Shut up !
    You're just jealous about the 206 WRC success.
     
  17. Re: My favorite rally car

    not jealous atall , which manufacturer is world renowned for its rally success? subaru has had a lot more sucess than peugeot in the rally, just not at the moment.<!-- Signature -->

  20. Re: My favorite rally car

    Pug have 4 world titles already.

    2 with the 205T16
    2 with the 206 WRC , and it's not finished IMO.
     
  21. Re: My favorite rally car

    4 wow huge number, mitsi got that in a row!<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: My favorite rally car

    That's just manufacturer's for Pug, they also have to date 3 driver's. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    4 in a row ain't all that impressive. Lancia got 6 straight manufacturer's! :D
     
  23. Re: My favorite rally car

    thats pretty good, i was only born in 85 so i dont know too much about the achievements of older cars just know wat they are,
    if u use kazaa u can download a video of ari vatenan (not sure on spellin but u know who i mean) driving a beast of a pug at pikes peak. its like a 205 t16 with extra bits!<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: My favorite rally car

    All WRC Cars are 4WD. The road car isn't one though, its a Front Wheel drive.
     
  25. Re: My favorite rally car

    That would be the 405, I saw a video of it when I was at a motor show a year or two ago. Man that was awesome. So close to a sheer drop on many occasions. I tell ya, hillclimbers are mad!

    The 405 and the Pikes Peak prepped Quattro S1 were absolute beasts!

    BTW, during 1986, the final year of Group B, Audi were testing a new engine for the Quattro (in various hillclimb races, but I don't think PP was one of them). The engine produced 1000HP! It was also, apparently, completely undrivable! *laugh*
