The 1988 Peugeot 205 1.6 GTi stands as an icon of the hot hatch era, blending performance and style. Its compact frame housed a spirited 1.6 litre engine, delivering 105 horsepower to the front wheels through a close-ratio five-speed gearbox. With nimble handling, the GTi offered a thrilling driving experience, becoming a favourite on both city streets and rally courses. The distinctive design featured flared wheel arches, a sporty stance, and the signature ‘GTi’ badging. This model's blend of power, agility, and French flair cemented its status as a sought-after classic, celebrated by enthusiasts and remembered as a symbol of automotive enthusiasm.
Originally registered in August 1988, this iconic GTi presents well in red paintwork. This ‘hot hatch’ benefitted from a recent recommissioning and has a large file of MoT test certificates and invoices for earlier maintenance work. The interior has a time warp feel showing little sign of age. The dashboard is in good order having not succumbed to the cracking and sun damage so often seen in cars of this age. We are informed that the switchgear and interior controls are of a good standard and are reported to be working well, as is the factory fitted glass sunroof. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a valid MoT test certificate, this 205 would make a perfect addition to any GTi collection.
