A special Peugeot 208 GTi 30th Anniversary edition model will debut at next week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.
The French brand has revealed few other details about the 30th Anniversary 208 GTi, though says its debut will be similar to that of the RCZ-R at last year’s festival, with a static display and dynamic demonstrations on the hill climb from Friday to Sunday (June 27-29).
There’s no word at this stage if the 30th Anniversary limited edition model will get a performance bump over the 147kW and 275Nm of the regular 208 GTi’s turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which propels the pocket rocket from 0-100km/h in a claimed 8.1 seconds.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the introduction of the iconic Peugeot 205 GTi. (Click here to watch CarAdvice’s Old v New video featuring the original 205 GTi and the modern-day 208 GTi.)
Peugeot Australia has no plans to offer the 30th Anniversary 208 GTi locally, telling CarAdvice its reason for not taking it was simply a “business decision”.
