The final installment of our Group B galleries features the Peugeot 205 T16 – a car run under the watchful eye of Jean Todt.
Also featured in the series is an Audi S1, a Lancia Delta S4, a Ford RS200 and an MG Metro 6R4. The immaculate cars are all the property of 1980s Spanish hillclimb champion Teo Martin – who also owns circuit and touring cars – and were photographed by Lyndon McNeill. Richard Heseltine has written a full Group B celebration in the current magazine in honour of the 30th anniversary of the era’s demise.
