Peugeot 208 GTi 30th anniversary special edition with 205bhp revealed

Peugeot is celebrating 30th anniversary of the iconic 205 GTi with a special edition 30th anniversary 208 GTi.

The 208 GTi 30th uses the same 1.6-litre THP petrol engine, but with increased power delivering now 205bhp (up by 7bhp compared to the standard model) and 300Nm of torque linked to a six-speed manual gearbox and Torsen differential and specific suspension that is lowered by 10mm and steering settings.

0-62mph comes in 6.5 seconds and Peugeot also likes to point out the sporty hatch covers 0-1000 metres in 26.5 seconds, while mid-range acceleration between 50 and 70mph is covered in 6.0 seconds.

The front track is widened by 22mm and the rear by 16mm, with wheel arch extensions housing larger 18-inch alloy wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 205/40 ZR 18 tyres.

In addition to a very modest increase in power, the special edition model features a two-tone red/black exterior colour, matt black side skirts and large red brake calipers.

In addition to a red/black exterior, the 208 GTi 30th will also be available in Pearl White and Ruby Red, historical colours of Peugeot GTi cars.

The cockpit comes with new floor mats, bucket seats trimmed with Alcantara and red stitching, while the special touch is given with a numbered plaque.

The 208 GTi 30th anniversary model will go on sale later this year after also debuting at the Paris Motor Show in October.Prices will be announced closer to market launch.
