Rally Preparation Services are very excited to have been consigned to offer for sale this amazing ex-Works replica Peugeot 504 wide-bodied coupe rally car.

 

By the time the World Rally Championship was created in 1973, Peugeot was already heavily involved in endurance and African-style rallies. The Peugeot 504Ti Berline, a two-liter, four door model developing 140 bhp in rally trim was launched in 1970, and convincingly dominated these tough events, winning the Safari Rally, Rallye du Maroc, and Rallye Cote d’ Ivoire-Bandama and establishing a solid reputation of the competitiveness, ruggedness and reliability of the brand.

 

In search of more power Peugeot introduced the 504 Coupe in 1976 available with a 2.7-liter V6 engine developing 220 bhp, a 50% increase compared to the 504 Berline. The sleek coupe bodies were produced at the Pinifarina factory in Italy, then shipped to Peugeot’s Sochaux plant where they were converted to rally cars. At the 1976 Bandama Rallye the 504 Coupe triumphed on its maiden competitive outing and celebrated claiming the first 5 places at the end of the rally.

 

Then in 1979 just four wide-bodied 504 Coupes were introduced, featuring wider track, flared wings, along with improvements in power and handling. Only one of the four original wide-bodied coupes with documented rally history survives today, it is this car which is fully restored and has participated with distinction in over twenty-five tarmac and gravel stage rallies in the past three years…

 

The owner of this car commissioned the build of a replica Works spec coupe with a rust-free French import shell and his own cache of Works spares. The shell was stripped to bare metal, lightened, seam welded and reinforced then augmented with wide-body Works arches and fitted with a chromium-molybdenum Appendix K roll cage along with FIA-approved seats and mounts.

 

A sump guard and a differential guard are installed in the usual best practice manner to protect the engine, gearbox, and differential. With long distance events in mind the car has a bulletproof two-liter installed, to the same specification as cars which have had class wins in the last two Peking to Paris events and the 2020 ERA Rally New Zealand. The final specification of the engines is to give a quick rally car designed to withstand the rigors of hard-core endurance rallying and comfortable enough to be driven at a very brisk pace all day.

 

The instrumentation includes a rev-counter with built-in adjustable shift light, an array of VDO gauges – voltage, water temperature, oil temperature, and oil pressure with a low oil pressure buzzer alert. A Terratrip rally computer is installed along with a 12V USB charging port. 

 

Twin fuel pumps are fitted along with a boot mounted fuel tank directly over the rear axle.

 

This is a brand new car having travelled only 100 miles of installation testing.

 

The car is currently with the owner based in Athens – Rally Preparation Services can arrange any viewings and any logistics and registration of the car in the UK. 

 

All viewings and test drives welcomed through direct contact with Rally Preparation Services.

Forged domed pistons

Hybrid composite / annealed copper head gasket,

Lightened and balanced flywheel,

Flow-bench-developed and port-matched head

Gearbox and differential:

Two options are available

 

Option 1 – The extremely resilient and lightweight four-speed BA7/4, paired to a Works 45-60% LSD with 4.11 gears – easier on the senses and better suited to long distance events

Option 2 – A bespoke close ratio five speed with straight cut gears paired to an 80% Quaife-type ATB LSD with 5.11 gears. This combination makes for better stage times and lower rpm cruising, but straight–cut gears produce a transmission whine that is best tolerated if a helmet or intercom headphones are worn

All bushings have been converted to top quality polyurethane

Spherical joint top mounts with camber adjustment
