Can a supermini be jaw-droppingly gorgeous? It can if it’s built by Astron Martin, right! Wrong, Peugeot has just fully unveiled the 208 XY at the Paris Motor Show and we’re going to show you just how glorious French chic can still be.
The 208 XY is available in five other colors, but this one called Purple Night is just perfect for the car. Other bespoke touches include chromed grille, mirror caps, window trim, fog lamp surrounds, and rear apron lower trim. All this is topped off with a set of 17-inch diamond-Anthra Mercure multi-spoke wheels.

Inside, the car is available with black leather on the seats, doors and side sections of the dash. The steering wheel and gearshift lever also get the leather treatment. The XY also comes standard with aluminum pedals and custom mats.
Here is the full range of engine and transmission choices:

• 1.6 e-HDi 92 FAP, 5-speed manual gearbox, 98g of CO2/km
• 1.6 e-HDi 92 FAP, 6-speed piloted gearbox, 98g of CO2/km
• 1.6 e-HDi 115 FAP, 6-speed manual gearbox, 99g of CO2/km
• 1.6 VTi 120, 5-speed manual gearbox, 134g of CO2/km

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
