After Matra and Renault-Alpine during the 70's and Rondeau in the 80's, when Peugeot appeared at Le Mans 24 Hours in 1991, we had not seen it in La Sarthe since 1938. French engineer André de Cortanze designed the 905, which would soon define the shape of a new generation of prototypes, powered by a 3.5-litre engines, similar to those used in Formula 1 at the time. Despite a double retirement, it was definitely fast. Modified and made more ​​reliable in 1992, had its first victory at Le Mans (also taking pole position and third place), and a fantastic triple in 1993. The 905 is also inseparable from the man who led the team to success, Jean Todt who at the time was the boss of Peugeot sport, and is now the current President of the Federation International Automobile.
