Peugeot Announces 208 GTI Limited Edition

Special Edition

Only 54 examples of this special-edition Peugeot hot hatch will be made, with 29 of them going to the UK.

You may associate the letters GTI with Volkswagen, but the German automaker isn’t the only one assigning them to a hot hatch. Peugeot also has a long relationship with the name, relaunching itself into the hot-hatch game with the new 208 GTI. And to celebrate, it’s offering a new limited edition version. Limited to just 54 examples (29 of which are earmarked for the UK), the 208 GTI Limited Edition is distinguished by a number of special touches.

Aside from all the bells and whistles from the options list, the special-edition GTI features a flag motif on the lower edge of the grille, special 17-inch wheels, red brake calipers, part-leather seats and an individual number plate that is sure to help this version hold its value over time. Power comes from a 1.6-liter turbo four with 200 horsepower, co-developed with BMW, delivering a 0-62 time of 6.8 seconds. That bit is unchanged from the regular-production 208 GTI that will continue to be offered after all 54 examples of this limited edition are spoken for.
