For the start of the 2005 season the Peugeot team decided to replace the multiple manufacters' and drivers' championship winning 206 with the new 307 WRC. The car was plagued by early season problems mainly in the transmission area, it had been affectionately nicknamed "The Flying Frog" and "The Whale". It only began to come into its element in competition towards the end of its factory-supported participation in the WRC. In total it has three WRC victories to its name, but its competitive life was cut short at the end of 2005, manufacturers Citroën and Peugeot had madethe decision to withdraw from top-level rallying. The 307 went onto gain rally wins in the hands of privateers in the 2004 and 2005 Neste Rally Finland as well as in the 2005 Rally Japan. All these victories were at the hands of double world drivers' champion Marcus Grönholm.

In 2006 a private undertaking by seasoned Peugeot preparatory firm Bozian Racing, or otherwise known as OMV Peugeot Norway World Rally Team, largely assumed responsibility for the running of WRC-spec 307s. Manfred Stohl and Henning Solberg were named as the driving personnel, with Stohl placing fourth in the overall drivers' standings. Sadly the 307 will be remembered for the accident that befell WRC competitors Markko Märtin and Michael Park on September 18, 2005, which resulted in co-driver Park's death. On stage 15 of Wales Rally GB, Märtin lost control of his 307 WRC and collided with a tree, killing Park instantly. This was the first fatality in a WRC event since 1993. This build is of the 2005 works car driven by Marcus Grönholm.

The model is largely built OOB with a few p/e extras and details added, 'Marlboro' Tobacco sponsor is also included. Also added were a set of night stage spotlights from the Heller kit of the same car.
