Other highlights on the stage will include the bizarre Citroën 2CV BiBip Dakar – which remains one of the most ambitious attempts to conquer one of the world’s toughest rallies. The BiBip saw a 1963 2CV fitted with not one, but two Citroën Visa engines to boost power nearly ten times from the standard 12.5bhp to 100. While the attempt was unsuccessful – the BiBip retired after a suspension failure on stage four – the car would go on to finish 75th in the Paris 24hr 4x4.
Alongside these machines, celebrity chef and Goodwood regular James Martin will be bringing his iconic ’63 Mini Cooper, while several stars of the Group A era will take to the stage including Ford Escort Cosworths, the rare but iconic Mitsubishi Starion and a brilliant Mercedes-Benz 190E.
