Peugeot 405 Mi16 Supertourer ex-Giovanardi – A superbly restored, ex-Italian STC ‘Supertourer’, nicely competitive in period and ready to race once again.
The Peugeot 405 Mi16 Super Touring car, an historic and formidable racing machine perfectly encapsulates the racing legacy it forged in the 1993 and 1994 Campionato Italiano Superturismo seasons. The 405 played a pivotal role in securing second and third overall during the respective seasons under the skilled command of the seasoned professional, Fabrizio Giovanardi.
Chassis # V21/D2/01 is one of just five cars constructed by Italtecnica for the works Team Peugeot Talbot, purpose-built for the demanding conditions of the Italian Super Touring Championship seasons in 1993 and 1994, which was essentially the Italian version of the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship). Fitted with the highly strung 1.9-litre, 16 valve, four-cylinder engine, the 1993 season had seen Giovanardi in a fierce battle for the championship title with CiBiEmme Engineering BMW driver Roberto Ravaglia, a contest that ended with Giovanardi finishing just seven points behind Ravaglia after notching up an impressive five victories. In the intense 1994 season, Giovanardi clinched podium finishes seven times, ultimately finishing third overall.
This historic racer, with its rich history, has undergone a comprehensive rebuild and restoration by the renowned Owens Fabrication Company and every aspect, both mechanical and cosmetic, has been meticulously addressed, leaving no stone unturned in the quest for perfection. Mechanically, the car boasts an impressive list of new and rebuilt components, including a new camshaft, flywheel, clutch kit, bushings, rebuilt differential, driveshafts, gearbox, valves, radiators, fans, sensors, bulbs, fuel and oil lines with braided hoses, injectors, and coil.
Cosmetically, the car has undergone a complete transformation, with a meticulous strip-down and repaint, adorned with a fresh, period-correct livery resulting in a visually stunning and historically authentic representation of the Peugeot 405 Super Touring car from the period.
Last seen in action in the 2021 HSCC Dunlop Saloon Car Cup, this Supertourer reportedly is ready to go and will be offered with fresh FIA papers. It’s eligibile for various prestigious championships, including CTRC Super Tourers, Masters Touring Cars, Peter Auto, Youngtimers, and numerous historic racing events worldwide, making it a sought-after gem for the 2024 season. Whether thrilling enthusiasts on the track or adding to a historic racing collection, this Peugeot 405 Super Touring car stands as a testament to an era of intense competition and engineering excellence and we invite and encourage your close inspection.
