Neil Moscrop is Peugeot UK's brand director and has been with them for 36 years. Here he tells AOL CARS why the 205 GTI was such an iconic car.

I remember the first time I saw a 205. I was a material control analyst back then and as part of the launch the company took the car on a tour for its employees to see. It arrived on a transporter and everyone in the Birmingham parts centre where I was working gathered to see it. There was just a collective 'wow' – you could tell then it was a special car. The GTI hadn't even launched back then but you could just tell it had the right proportions. It just looked right.
