Climb Dance, the rally-porn film celebrating the Pikes Peak Hill Climb victories of Ari Vatanen in 1988 and Robby Unser in 1989 - and including footage from both drives - has been remastered in high definition. It was commissioned by Peugeot, maker of the four-wheel steering 415 T16 Grand Raid, the racecar that took both drivers to the top to overall victories.

Peugeot will be hoping that Sébastien Loeb can dance the same way next month when he runs up the now-paved mountain in his 208. You'll find the breathtaking remastered Climb Dance below, as well as tribute the Motor Trend made with Marcus Gronholm in a Ford Fiesta back in 2009. Enjoy.

      Classic, iconic, mesmerizing, like a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart. What more can be said about this film. Thank you for the update on a legendary classic and for the upload Autoblog. Awesome video that reminds us of a time when respect was about having balls, not sliding around cones and segways.

      Not to slant Marcus Gronholm, the ace that he is/was, but his version has nothing on the Ari Vatanen version. The sound, the slides, the conditions, the bug splat on the windscreen are amazing on the original; the Motor Trend tribute starts out promising, but doesn't deliver as much. Irrespective of the videos, Pikes Peak Hill Climb is in a category of its own. I can't wait to see Monsieur Loeb's dance.

      405, not 415...

      I think it's really a shame that they paved the entire road. Sure the times are quicker, but to me it loses a lot of appeal. Also, as far as recordkeeping go, I definitely feel there should be BT (Before Tarmac) and PT (Post Tarmac) records.
