Description

1982 Talbot Samba Group B Built in the last three years By Costello Motorsport Spain

The Talbot Samba was a supermini car manufactured by the PSA Group in the former Simca factory in Poissy, France, and marketed under the short-lived modern-day Talbot brand. Based on the Peugeot 104, it was the only Talbot not inherited from Chrysler Europe, engineered by PSA alone. It was also the last new Talbot to be launched, and the last in production. Its demise in 1986 was effectively the end of the Talbot brand for passenger cars. Launched initially as a three-door hatchback, it was also for some time the only supermini available in a factory-ordered cabriolet body style, and the most economical car in Europe

Following the rallying successes of the Simca 1000 and the Talbot Sunbeam, PSA launched the Samba Rallye. Fitted with the 1219 cc XW version of the X engine, delivering 66 kilowatt (90 PS), it came in either white or red, with a hood scoop and side stripes. In 1985, a version with the 1360 cc unit producing 59 kilowatt (80 PS) was launched, without the stripes. A special rallye-only Group B model, officially called the Peugeot Talbot Sport Samba Rallye preceded the later Peugeot 205 T16, with a 1285 cc, 96 kilowatt engine.

This Samba Group B was commissioned by Drew Wylie and built by renowned experts Castello Motorsport in Group B specification, including the engine, gearbox, limited slip differential, competition wiring loom , hydraulic hand brake and modern brakes and hubs.

Offered with UK V5 registration and finished in it’s iconic livery, this certainly is a rare beast and could prove to offer a great deal of entertainment to its lucky new owner.

Presented in works Colours with Silver interior colour, spec includes 1235 cc engine with steel crank and rods fully balanced, 5 Speed Close ratio Synchro box with LImited slip differential, fully adjustable suspension, uprated brakes running on 14"rims
