After the demise of the Group B era Peugeot Sport needed somewhere to rally its mighty fire breathing mid-engine Turbo charged monster 205, the T16. A natural home seemed to be the grueling and world famous Paris Dakar endurance rally and so for 1987 Peugeot entered a car for 1981 World Rally Champion Ari Vatanen. In its striking yellow colour scheme, something that seems unwise against the back drop of the desert, the modified Peugeot romped to victory, something that Peugeot repeated in 1988, 89 and 90. With Ari himself claiming the titles again in 1989 and 1990. A positive end for the famous 205 T16 a car that in group B format had proved to be almost unstoppable.
