Rally Preparation Services is very pleased to offer for sale this fantastic Peugeot 504 Coupe Group 4 classic rally car originally commissioned by Peugeot ex-works team driver Jean-Pierre Nicolas for his own use in classic rallies.

Peugeot built its first car well over a 100 years ago. Nowadays, Peugeot tends to be associated with small but worthy hatchbacks but of course this innovative manufacturer has a glorious motorsport pedigree. Perhaps it’s greatest days in rallying were with the all-conquering Group B 205 T16 but of course Peugeot built robust rally cars in the 60s and 70s and dominated African rallying. The tough 504 saloon was underpowered compared to the Escort and Stratos but campaigned by Peugeot successfully dominated events in Africa thanks to its solid engineering with names such as Hannu Mikkola, Timo Mäkinen, and the French 504-star himself, Jean-Pierre Nicolas.

In 1976 the 504 Coupe was launched with the new 2. 5 V6 motor delivering up to 250bhp. Outright rally victories immediately followed – in Morocco with Timo Mäkinen on The Ivory Coast (a rally so arduous that in 1972 there were no finishers.) Then Jean-Pierre Nicolas drove a 504 Coupe to wins both on the 1978 Ivory Coast Rallye and also the East African Safari – an event where Nicolas finished nearly 40 minutes ahead of his nearest rival demonstrating how good the coupe was.

This very car was driven by World rally champion Bjorn Waldegard on the 2010 Morocco Historique before undergoing the transformation to a full Group 4 specification classic rally car. The work was carried out by Nandan Expertec (as in Michel Nanden ex-technical director at Peugeot Sport) with assistance from Matter while engine preparation was entrusted to experts NG Sport. This car has been built to the highest standard, mixing period details such as the foot mounts on the bumpers and the twin cowl dash, with modern technology; For example the twin electronic Facet fuel pumps and the long range fuel cell. The engine produces 200bhp on triple twin choke Weber carburettors and is deliberately under stressed to cope with the vagaries of poor quality fuel. This car represents a rare opportunity to secure a top specification car, ideally suited for classic marathon rallying and events such as the Monte-Carlo Historique with its great condition and provenance.

The car is currently with RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.

The car is advertised with a cherished number that is not part of the sale.
