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 30
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".
