Unregistered competition vehicle Sold without its engine and gearbox The one and only MPV to have taken the start of the Spa-Francorchamps 24 Hours in 1995 and of an international endurance race! Certainly the most famous racing car in the Kingdom of Belgium! Under the impulse of Pascal Witmeur, driver, agent and promoter of the Procar, but also responsible for Peugeot’s advertising budget in Belgium, this 806 will start its transformation in May 1995 to become a real racing car. Thanks to the financial support of Peugeot and the technical teams of Kronos Racing, it would appear at the start of the race two months later with the 12th fastest time on the starting grid and 3rd in its category! A concentrate of technology, the engine is a 4-cylinder, 2-litre engine from a 306 Maxi delivering 280hp; the running gear is from a 405 Mi16 Supertourism and the body, from the Peugeot factory in the Hauts de France, will be reinforced (in addition to the body reinforcements) with a sublime custom-made AMP roll bar. More than a race car, it is a stroke of marketing genius that will ignite the public in the stands but also in the paddocks where the competition did not appreciate being slower than a “family” car! The abandonment of the car at the 10th hour due to engine failure did not affect the final result. The car in the colours of Walibi and the weekly magazine Le Vif - L’express, was kept in the collection of the Kronos Racing team until the death of its founder Jean-Pierre Montron. In the hands of its second owner, some expenses will be made, notably on the running gear.
