    Great vid! There's some whacky machinery going up that hill - how about helicopter engined open wheelers!?. I love group B, and of course the 205 is my favourite, but doesn't the 5 cylinder quattro sound amazing...

    I'm guessing you've already seen this? It isn't a 205 though...

    Ah, yes. Always good to watch the 405 again. I just love the boost gauge!

    Just love the sound of a Group B Audi on full song surely one of the best exhaust notes in the world.....

    Yeah - not only massive skill but massive cojones racing group B and other 600hp+ cars on that road.

    I'm not 100% but the 405 vid must be not much more than a year after the first vid was shot - so indeed, Ari did go back with a "proper clip" ha ha...

    I think it was the very next year (1988) so yes, a proper clip in a proper car

    The most awesome rally footage I have ever seen. I lost count how many times I have seen it and I still love it. Ari is a milk drinker, maybe that's the secret?

    It might be tarmac now but it wasn't all in 2010 - check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2y3OFf0ArU

    It's not French, but hell it's an awesome trip up Pikes Peak. I reckon the tarmac / dirt combo makes it more interesting. More difficult car set up and you'd have to think a bigger challenge for the drivers.

    Yeah me too, I remember watching it at a mates place on VHS when it first came out. His Dad was race driver - he made us watch it over and over - that may have been the moment I became a Pug nut. The fact that my old man bought a new 405mi16 around that time might have had something to do with it too...

    It's an ad for milk...

    For more little known Ari facts, he used to raise a glass of milk on the winner's podium and (for those EU lovers) he's been an EU parliament politician for some time.

    More tiriva:-
    He was in the European Parliament from '04 to '09 when he failed to be re-elected. He ran against Max Mosley in the FIA Presidential elections in '09, but failed in that bid also. Ari's old boss at Peugeot, Jean Todt won the FIA elections

    Obviously things didn't work out for him after not being re-elected and he had to fall back on a job as Peugeot museum security to make ends meet.

    I found Ari's description of the 405 T16 he used at Pike Peak interesting
