This amazing 206 WRC, chassis number C31, was registered 206 NLN 75. It is a 2001 car originally and subsequently equipped with late specification components. It was built in asphalt configuration and only raced once with the factory in the hands of Marcus Grönholm at the 2001 ADAC Rally. Unfortunately a puncture plus a little mistake on Sunday deprived him of the podium but despite this he finished in a very creditable 4th place. It looks like very little was done to it before it was sold to highly reputable Bozian Racing in 2004 to compete in the 2004 WRC in the hands of Nicolas Vouilloz and Henning Solberg, Vouilloz driving all of the tarmac rounds.
It did another few rounds of WRC until 2007 before it passed through a couple of hands in France to compete in the FRC then more local rallies. C31 has been meticulously maintained all of its life, however after years of rallying it was decided in 2016 to have the car completely restored from the chassis up and the current owner brought it to SMG, a Philippe Gache company. The chassis was taken back to the bare metal, every panel inspected and replaced where necessary. The car went next to a private collector who had it looked after by the 206 WRC worldwide specialist Christophe Vaison.
The car is offered today fully serviced at Vaison Sport and in ready to race condition with important life left on the main mechanical components. C31 was last driven in June 2019 in testing and performed remarkably with all the systems checked by an ex. Peugeot Sport engineer. The car comes with an important spares package and it is hard to imagine a better prepared race ready 206 WRC in such excellent condition. It also important to mention that the original FIA Gold pass still accompanies the car with VIN and WRC matching numbers.
