2014 Peugeot 208 GTi 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Revealed!
2014 Peugeot 208 GTi 30th Anniversary Limited Edition was just unveiled at Goodwood Festival of Speed. Unlike we supposed, judging from he teaser image revealed recently, the car is not painted in all-red, but actually features a two-tone paint scheme. The car s based on the 208 GTi, however it delivers a more intense driving sensation because it is equipped with the new Euro6 1.6-litre THP petrol engine that develops 208 hp (153 kW) and 300 Nm (222 lb-ft) of torque. The unit has been mated with a six-speed manual gearbox, it has great traction and efficiency assured through the specification of a Torsen differential, specific suspension and steering settings.
208 GTi 30th proves that it has a sporty temperament. Just look at these figures: the 0 to 100 km/h sprint is covered in 6.5 seconds. Although the performance is great, the achieved efficiency figures are low and CO2 emissions are just 125g/km.
Furthermore, the suspension here has been lowered by 10mm, the track widened by 22mm at the front and 16mm at the rear. Peugeot has also fitted larger wheels to the anniversary edition car. At the front there are grille surround, the fog lamp bezels and door mirror shells finished in matt black.
From the side, the lowered stance is highlighted further by matt black side skirts and wheel arch extensions that cover new 18" wheels finished with matt black rims. The wheels are coupled with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 205/40 ZR 18 tyres. The front wheels include large red Peugeot Sport brake calipers with 323mm diameter and 28mm thick discs at the front and Brembo fixed four-piston calipers.
The window trim strip are also finished in matt black, while the quarter panel bears a ‘208 GTi 30th logo'. At the rear we see round twin chrome tail pipes. The exterior has been finished in a two-tone and this dual material treatment is innovative and unique. The front is finished in a textured black, contrasting with the new high-gloss red at the rear. The two colours are divided by a sharp oblique straight-cut line. There is another bi-color option: Pearl White and Ruby Red.
Inside, the interior is in perfect harmony with the exterior. The black door handles with a red line echo the seat belts, high-quality floor mats are trimmed in red, while the front bucket seats were trimmed in an exclusive blend of materials, such as Alcantara, black TEP with red stitching and a black dotted mesh pattern with red highlights.
2014 Peugeot 208 GTi 30th Anniversary Limited Edition will be presented to the public at the forthcoming 2014 Paris Motor Show, with sales starting in November.
