I can see this being like the Clio Williams, probably a second slightly less exclusive run will be released in the future.

The paint job.
Besides I could get a deisel with better mpg more bhp and tons more torque without busting the bank, and if I was to bust the bank I wouldn't get a tiny little peugeot 208, but that's just my oppinion.

a diesel with more power will not be a hot hatch and will weigh a ton more.

Because he's referring to an alternative that costs the same or less than the new 208.

The twin tone paint job is actually a option. As standard they are solid red or white.

I think its a pretty cool car and if its anything like most over pugs/citroens with a tuned THP in it, it will be a great laugh even though it is "only" 208 bhp

The Peugeot 208 GTi 30th accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds
Is that with 2 1/2 passengers in the back?

LOL good point.
But it's retro and is in a brand new condition, but it's s**t on mpg and needs constant maintenance but hey I only look at it nowadays and watch the dog p**s up the wheels everytime I look Smile
Besides I'm getting old and boring now, I even prefer my cheapo ten year old estate 110 deisel mondeo with the towbar over my 198bhp tuned St hatchback atleast when I hit a pothole I don't have to replace the suspension in that pile of s**t

Well that's your opinion, not mine. A Sherman tank can be an alternative if it's the same price, depends what you want or like. That's not really the point I was making about your comment though.
