Peugeot 205 T16 coming up for sale

| 5 Apr 2012

Star of nearly 90 classics that H&H will sell at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford on 19 April is likely to be an incredibly low-mileage 1984 Peugeot 205 T16.

With an estimate of £90-120,000, the Heuliez-built road-going Group B car is in now-rare full road trim, looks menacing in black and has just 5000 miles on the clock. Only 200 of the turbo-powered homologation specials were manufactured and, although packing far less power than the stage rally cars, they share the four-wheel-drive and mid-engined layout.

It is far from the priciest car coming up, however. Top-seller will probably be the 1966 Rolls-Royce Cloud III MPW Drophead Coupe (£220-260,000) that has had a £100k restoration.

Other key lots include a one-of-68-in-rhd 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 (£150-180,000), a 39,000-mile, one-family-owned 1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 2 Vantage (£150-180,000), a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 (£25-30,000) with just 326 miles from new, and the 1938 Le Mans class winning 1935 Singer Nine Le Mans 'Savoye Special' (£130-150,000).

Among the competition cars is a wild 1972/'81 BMW 'Batmobile' racer (£130-150,000), while a 1926 Arab Super Sports Low Chassis Tourer (£100-120,000) is believed to be one of only two Low Chassis Arab models in the world.
