The Peugeot was parked next to the Toyota Celica WRC in its iconic Castrol colours. That too made a name for itself on the WRC stage, particularly on events such as the Kenya Safari Rally. It was also the last in a line of Celicas over multiple generations in the hands of some of the best rally drivers of all time.
If we are talking real icons though, then how about the unique Lancia Stratos. Never before, and probably never since, has a rally car been so dramatic in its design. The company is keen to bring back the Stratos, but it is unlikely to ever appear as a rally car again, we suspect.
Unlikely rally cars were also in abundance. We spotted a Mercedes 190E and a Ferrari 308 GTB but the one that really surprised us was an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Still, if you have the money then why not?
We spotted a number of angry Metro 6R4s and some famous stage rallying Opels as well as the classic Talbot Sunbeam, but there was one car that holds a special place in the hearts of not just rallying enthusiasts, but all motorsport enthusiasts. That car is the Subaru Impreza GT which was piloted by the former WRC champion, the late Colin McRae. It is a great tribute to his legacy to see the car still being put through its paces at events like Goodwood.
