Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9

Description

The Peugeot 205 is a B-Segment car launched in 1983.

The Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 launched in 1984, fitted with the XU5J engine producing 77 kW / 105 hp – while in 1986 its power output was increased to 85 kW / 115 hp thanks to a series of updates. Compared to the lesser versions of the 205, the GTi had a more aggressive suspension setup with stiffer springs, different wishbones and anti-roll bar. It also came with more powerful brakes (discs at the front and drums at the rear). The flagship Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9 launched in 1986 was fitted with the XU9JA engine producing 96 kW / 130 hp (later versions with the catalytic converter were detuned to 90 kW / 122 hp), and featured four-wheel disc brakes (ventilated discs at the front and solid discs at the rear) as well as larger 15″ wheels. Production of the 205 GTi 1.6 was completed in 1992, while the 205 GTI 1.9 was discontinued in 1995.

Visually, the 205 GTi was distinguished by the sporty body-coloured bumpers, the red stripe all around the plastic protective parts, fender extensions, the 14″ or 15″ Speedline rims and the GTi badges on the C-pillars and on the rear door. Inside it came with sport seats upholstered in cloth (GTi 1.6) or half leather (GTi 1.9), a three-spoke steering wheel with the GTi logo, rich equipment and red carpet.
