The 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT has been unveiled.
Powered by a highly-efficient 1.6-litre THP Stop&Start petrol engine and extensively developed by PEUGEOT SPORT, this latest PEUGEOT GTi is offered in two versions with 250hp and 270hp outputs both delivering impressive performance.
The clean lines of the modern exterior style takes the Brand’s now-familiar design language in a more assertive and contemporary direction. Inside, the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit cabin has been enhanced to reflect the sporting nature of the car, with additional detailing to signify this performance flagship.
With a wider track of 1,570mm at the front and 1,554mm at the rear, the 308 GTi has been engineered to offer exceptional grip. GTi 250 versions are shod with 225/40 R18 92W Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres on ‘Diamant’ alloy wheels, while the GTi 270 versions feature the new 19-inch ‘Carbone’ light-weight alloy wheels and are equipped with Michelin Super Sport 235/35 R19 91Y tyres, which showcase the 380mm front discs, complete with solid red four-piston calipers and PEUGEOT SPORT signature.
The more powerful 270hp version of the engine sets a new record for power-to-weight ratio in its segment, at just 4.46kg per unit of horsepower. It can reach 62mph (100 km/h) in just 6.0 seconds, compared to 6.2 seconds for the 308 GTi 250, while the top speed in both cars is electronically limited to 155mph.
