The 308 GTi looks amazing, aside from the aluminium GTi door sill finishes, front wing and tailgate badges, there’s the large twin exhausts, black rear diffuser, a ride height lowered by 11mm, black radiator grille, sports front bumper skirts and a red lower bumper finisher. Looking at the GTi as a whole, it’s certainly a very impressive piece of hot hatch architecture. Climb inside and you’re in no doubt as to the origin of your car as up ahead you have Peugeot’s now iconic iCockpit with it’s new GTi twist. This includes vibrant red stitching which adorns the upholstery, door … Continue reading Peugeot 308 GTi By Peugeot Sport: Underneath The Radar.
It’s not often that MotorMartin focuses on specifications as it’s how a car drives and feels that is surely most important, but with this particular Peugeot I’m sure you’ll understand: Cubic capacity: 1598cc Max Power (HP): 272 @ 6000rpm Max Torque (NM): 330 @ 1900rpm Length: 4253mm Width (incl Mirrors): 2041mm Height: 1446mm Wheelbase: 2617mm 0 – 62 mph: 6.0 seconds Maximum Speed: 155mph Kerb Weight: 1205Kg Gross Train: 1790Kg You’ve got to hand it to Peugeot, squeezing 272 bhp out of a 1.6 Litre 4 cylinder power plant is something very special especially when all that power doesn’t compromise … Continue reading Peugeot 308 GTi By Peugeot Sport THP 270: You’ve Got What It Takes

The following is a re-edit of a piece posted by MotorMartin on DriveTribe under The Junk Yard banner run by Tony Yates, perhaps better known as @Xinterceptor. The Peugeot 208 GTi By Peugeot Sport delivers a quite incredible 208bhp from its responsive, turbocharged 1.6L THP which, when combined with a tactile and responsive 6-speed manual gearbox, allows the driver to exploit the 300Nm of torque available at 3000rpm to the full. A stunningly quick 0-62mph of just 6.5s and a top speed of 143mph show the focus of Peugeot’s engineers with this hot hatch, it is very, very quick. The … Continue reading Peugeot 208 GTi By Peugeot Sport: I Know What I Am
The Peugeot 208 GTi By Peugeot Sport is the compact hatchback with which Peugeot hope to have created a modern icon that will compare and compete on equal terms with their own, legendary 205 GTi. And that is consistently the biggest problem for Peugeot, especially when that GTi badge is added. Look at the 206 GTi and the 207 GTi, both excellent cars driven in isolation but when compared to the original, it really was something of an unfair fight. It’s almost as if the addition of more power, more weight and more driving aids diluted the purity of the … Continue reading Peugeot 208 GTi By Peugeot Sport: Handsome Devil
