Lot 383: Peugeot 205 GTi Hatchback

The Beaulieu Sale, Bonhams (7 September 2013)

Although Volkswagen can claim to have created the 'Hot Hatch' category with the Golf GTi of 1975, though there had been a few earlier variations on the theme, by the early 1980s almost every major European manufacturer had one on the range. Peugeot were relative latecomers to this emerging market sector, introducing the 205GTi in 1984. At first the 1.6-litre made do with a relatively modest 105bhp, though this was increased to 115bhp in 1986 with 130 horsepower available in the 1.9-litre model, introduced at the same time. Top speed of the '1.6' was around 122mph, with 0-100km/h (62mph) achievable in 9.1 seconds. This 1.6-litre 205 GTi was purchased new in 1985 by the lady owner and has covered only 41,360 miles in total. Bought as a 'run around', the car has been kept garaged, looked after and serviced regularly (service history available). Now, aged 91, its owner has failing eyesight and has been advised not to drive - hence the decision to sell. All bills, including the original purchase receipt, come with the car together with the manufacturer's brochure. Finished in silver with red/black cloth interior, 'C764 HGF' is described as in generally good condition, with excellent engine, and is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to November 2013 and Swansea V5 document.
