This 205 GTi is finished in stunning silver paintwork, with the car looking like its on the front of a Haynes Manual! The paintwork on this particular car is its original factory coat. Being original there are a few minor stone chips to be found, however the paintwork still retains a deep bright shine. In true GTi-style, red piping adorns the black bumpers and waist line mouldings around the car which all remain free from scratches or scuffs and still fit exactly as they should. On closer inspection there are some slight blemishes to the black trim however this does not detract from the cars overall excellent appearance. At the corners all the lights remain clear and free from any cracks or moisture.
Inside the GTi the interior theme is classic red on black, the cloth seats are showing very little signs of wear, the red patterned cloth base and seat backs are in excellent condition with no fraying or tears, with all the red stitching completely intact. Sitting in the driver's seat you soon realise the 'like new' texture of the black dashboard and switch gear, every surface, switch and button remains free from wear, operating exactly as they should. The red 'GTI' badge is embossed in the centre of the steering wheel which also retains a wonderfully deep texture, along with the gearstick and handbrake all showing minimal wear. The carpet throughout the interior is clean and unmarked.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION:
A 1.6 engine and with only 42k miles on the clock, this timewarp! example still performs exactly as intended. The 5 speed manual gearbox which feels tight and precise with no play in the gear shift selector and the engine is in excellent mechanical condition, revving smoothly and feeling responsive.
Both the clutch and cambelt were replaced at 41,600.00k miles and the most recent service was undertaken just one month ago. The car will be sold with a fresh MOT.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES:
This GTi comes with its original Peugeot alloy wheels which have recently been refurbished, as such they are in perfect condition with no chips or kerb marks, gleaming in the correct paint finish. Disc's and pads are in A1 condition. The Michelin tires have plenty of tread.
The car has a full service history available to view along with the car at any time.
