Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI Miami blue, as featured on Top Gear
Product Code: VA12702
Peugeot, the acknowledged masters of the special edition, made 600 ‘Miami Blue’ and 600 ‘Sorrento Green’ limited edition GTIs in 1990. All featured PAS, a full grey leather interior with matching grey carpet, electric windows and central locking as standard making them a good buy for customers interested in a more luxurious specification GTI. The car modelled here was loaned by its owner to the BBC’s Top Gear show in 2003. Driven by ‘The Stig’ it participated in a 1/5 mile drag race at Dunsfold aerodrome against a 206 GTI for their ‘Generation Game’ feature. Sadly the 205 lost to its more powerful descendant, although the older cars beat the newer cars overall.
