Iconic Peugeot 205 GTI is reborn

Jay Nagley

An independent Peugeot specialist has decided, 28 years after its launch, to release an update programme for the 205 GTI.

Pug1off's idea is to bring the performance of the pocket-rocket into the 21st century, by fitting the 167bhp engine from the 1990s 306 GTI in place of the original 1.6 (105/115bhp) or 1.9 (120/130bhp). The conversion costs £2220, but that is only the start.
