This year’s London Classic Car Show, held on Thursday 18th – Sunday 21st February at the ExCeL International Exhibition Centre, sees PEUGEOT celebrate its considerable history with key anniversaries, future and period classic cars, heroes of the moment and images of its considerable motor sport success.

Officially opening the London Classic Car Show is Ari Vatanen, who successfully took PEUGEOT to so many victories in the World Rally Championship, the Dakar and Pikes Peak.

Key PEUGEOT Motor Sport anniversaries in 2016 include:

100 year anniversary of its second victory at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at the hands of Dario Resta – the first British driver to win there (1916 with wins in 1913 and 1919)
50 years since the 504 won the East African Safari rally for the 2nd time (wins; 1963/1966/1967)
35th anniversary of Peugeot Sport formation (1981)
30-years since it took its second World Rally Championships for the 205 T16 (1985 & 1986)
28-years since Ari Vatanen won the Pikes Peak hill climb in such convincing style

Displayed on the PEUGEOT stand alongside the Grand Avenue are two of the brands latest products developed by the company’s competitions department; the 208hp 208 GTi by Peugeot Sport in Ice Silver (production-durable textured paintwork) and the even more powerful 270 THP 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport with distinctive ‘Coupe Franche’ red/black paintwork. Alongside it is 1 of 200 models of the 205 T16 – the road-going version of the very-successful Group B winning rally car. The fourth classic car is a 405 T16 Grand Raid car which Ari Vatanen took to seven of its eight victories.

Being shown on screens on the PEUGEOT stand are images of the company’s considerable success covering the earliest and most historic races, during the operations of Peugeot Sport, now in its 35th year.

Anyone going along to this?
