RM Sotheby’s is excited to announce two hugely important rally cars, both offered with rich history at the hands of one of the greatest rally drivers of all time, Sébastien Loeb.
The 2011 Citroën DS3 WRC is believed to be one of just 13 Works-prepared DS3 WRCs constructed between 2011 and 2016, an example boasting a remarkable tally of 11 WRC victories, 16 podiums, and 80 stage wins, making it a record for any WRC chassis. Powered by an inline four mated to a six-speed Sadev sequential gearbox, it boasts 300 horsepower and a weight of just 1,200 kilograms. Further to this, it was driven in a significant season for Loeb, one in which he won his historic ninth WRC title. Presenting a case for one of the most illustrious rally cars of the modern era to ever come to market, this example is estimated to sell for between €450,000 – €750,000.
Also offered is a 2017 Peugeot 3008 DKR, which was one of five 3008 DKRs entered by Peugeot Sport in the 2017 Dakar Rally, and which was then driven to 3rd place overall by five-time Dakar motorcycle section winner Cyril Despres. The Peugeot then competed in the 2019 Dakar race, coming third at the hands of nine-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb. Following acquisition by Peugeot customer team and leading rally preparation specialist PH Sport in mid-2017, this example is now presented in a freshly rebuilt state and is ready for its next custodian (Estimate: €350,000 – €650,000).
