Peugeot showed the 208 GTi concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March. After that, they said they would only build it if it could be a performance benchmark, but they seem to be going in the posh direction with the production version that was shown for the first time at the Paris Motor Show last week.
Full details about the car were only supposed to become available in the spring of 2013, but we think we found the much needed information.

A French website Feline 208 say the Peugeot 208 GTi will go on sale in April 2013 for €24,500 including taxes. The car will come in a choice of five exterior color Blanc Banquise, Noir Perla Nera, Gris Aluminum, Gris Shark and Rouge Rubi.

The GTi will be quite light, tipping the scales at just 1,160kg (2,538 lbs), and will have a 200 PS version of the 1.6 THP. For now, Peugeot did not reveal exact performance figures, but they said it will do 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 7 seconds while also putting out only 145 grams of CO2 per km.

"The 208 was an excellent base for developing a sports hatchback," commented Marie Beaumont, 208 GTi Dynamics Manager. "We have worked with particular attention on the steering response, the chassis dynamics and the rigidity of the suspension. The 208 GTi successfully combines performance, safety and driving pleasure."

There will also be a special car called the 208 GTi Limited Edtion, which will cost €25,900 including tax and will be produced in very limited number – only 54 or which 24 will stay in France. As you can see from the photo above, it’s distinguished by the special Blanc Nacré Satin paintjob.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
