Peugeot 205 GTI


This 1986 Peugeot 205 GTI is a real timewarp car. With just 37,127 miles on the clock, it’s in near-new condition, inside and out.

Finished in Alpine White with the original pepper pot wheels (shod with Michelin tyres) and a sliding glass sunroof, it’s the epitome of eighties hot hatch cool.

The interior boasts black and red Biarritz seats, and striking red carpets, plus a period Pioneer radio-cassette player.

The car’s history is documented right back to 1986. The last two services were by main Peugeot dealers in 2021 and 2022, at 37,092 and 37,111 miles respectively!

The 205 GTI is one of the greatest hot hatches of the eighties, and the original 1.6-litre variant, with its revvy engine, is the purist’s choice, as it’s such a fun and light little car, and huge fun to drive. It’s rare to find one with such low mileage and in such good, original condition.

The Peugeot comes with its original driver’s manual, service book, a Haynes manual, and the ideal numberplate ‘C16 PEU’.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we can make a video or organise a conference call to show you around the car, covering all aspects you want to see. We are based in the historic village of Bosham, on the south coast of England, nestled between the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a lovely area to visit and you are very welcome to come and view our stock or just have a chat about cars!

Philip Raby Specialist Cars is refreshingly different. We like to build a friendly relationship with customers; before, during and after you buy from us. You won’t get a hard sell but you will get friendly and professional advice to ensure that we find exactly the right car for you. We have sold hundreds of Porsches and other specialist cars and have a vast experience to share with you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale. This ensures that your new car is ready for you to enjoy from day one, without you having to worry about a thing. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include a six-month warranty underwritten by us. We stand by this warranty so, if you have any issue with your Porsche, wherever you are in the UK, we will work with you to put things right, without any quibble or fuss. Please note that we are open during normal hours on weekdays and by appointment at weekend so do please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit or a video. Part exchange and finance available – please click the Finance button below for details.

Philip Raby says: “I had a 205 GTI just like this, back in the day, and it’s great to be reunited with what was one of the most fun cars I’ve owned. It feels so small and eager.”
