1985 – Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6L
French circulation permit Chassis n°VF3741C66G7005999 - Symbol of the GTI and the most authentic 1600 cm3 version - Beautiful configuration with practical options - Few owners and in the same hands since 2010 - 192,500 kms with follow-up In the 1980s, GTIs had the wind in their sails. They were a commercial success, and Volkswagen expected to remain champion in this competition with its legendary Golf GTI. But Peugeot was not to be outdone, and in 1984 it launched the GTI version of its famous Sochaux "puce": the 205. This little car came late after the R5 Alpine and Golf GTI, but it offered strong arguments and its own identity, to such an extent that it marked generations of car enthusiasts. Initially offered with a 105 hp 1.6-liter engine, it was later equipped with a 130 hp 1.9-liter engine from March 1987. With almost 300,000 units assembled over a career spanning some 10 years, the 205 GTI remains one of Peugeot's most resounding successes. The 205 GTI up for auction is a 1.6L, 105 hp version from the 1986 model year, launched in France in December 1985. In Graphite gray (1584) metallic, with 14-inch 4-hole aluminum wheels, combined with characteristic black and red Biarritz fabric and velvet upholstery, plus red carpeting, it boasts a configuration that's both chic and sporty. It benefits from the electric package (power windows and central locking) and the Vitaloni right-hand rearview mirror, which were options that now make frequent, everyday use more pleasant. In the same hands since 2010, and having had only a few owners, this 205 GTI, with just over 192,500 kms, is today in perfectly satisfactory condition for its age and mileage. It has obviously always been serviced. A file of invoices and an appraisal report produced in 2022 are available to potential buyers to give them a better idea of this little lioness. Fun, easy to use and affordable, this 205 GTI 1.6L is the ideal companion to enjoy this summer, aboard an oldtimer that's still as popular as ever, even 40 years after its launch.
