“As with competition models, in developing the 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT, we targeted all aspects of the car, including weight, the efficiency of the chassis and brakes, the engine performance and the body-hugging seats. Those who buy the car are set for an intense experience with this new version developed by an entire team. It comes with a raft of high-end performance features as standard.” said Peugeot Brand Chief Executive Officer Maxime Picat.

Looking very much similar to the standard version, the GTi by Peugeot Sport gets an exclusive gloss-black radiator grille with a horizontal chequered pattern, larger air intakes, two front spoilers below the bumper, extended side skirts, read diffuser and dual exhausts. It also benefits from a set of tuned suspension system which makes it sit 11-inches lower in either an 18-inch Diamant or the optional 19-inch Carbone 19 alloy wheels.

Under the hood is the EP6 FDTR powerplant, which is a 1.6-litre THP S&S engine with two power outputs. One is offered with 250 hp while the other, 270 hp. Both produces 330 Nm of torque and mated to a beefed-up 6-speed manual transmission that enables a 0 to 100 km/h time of 6 seconds for the GTi 270 and 6.2 seconds for the GTi 250. It consumes 6.0-litre per 100 km of fuel and spits out 139g/km of CO2.
