A special launch edition of the Peugeot 208 GTi will be limited to just 54 units worldwide – 29 of which are destined for the UK.
The Peugeot GTI Limited Edition, on show at this week’s Paris motor show, will be available alongside the standard car at its late May 2013 launch, priced from £20,495. The standard car is tipped to cost around £19,000.
The 29 units for the UK mark one for each year since the original 205 GTi launched in 1984, a car Peugeot is aiming to conjure memories of with its latest hot hatch.
Each of the special editions will come with a higher specification rather than any more power or chassis upgrades over the standard 208 GTI.
The cars will be individually numbered, and come with sat-nav and DAB digital radio, a Peugeot first. Each will be painted in pearlescent white, be fitted with 17in Carbon Onyx Black alloy wheels and have a Union Jack painted on the lower grille.
