Peugeot will be limiting the UK allocation of the 208 GTi to just 29 examples when it goes on sale in May next year.
The new model will be priced from £20,495 and Peugeot said it was limiting the allocation to 29 to mark the 29 years since the UK launch of the 205 GTI in 1984.
The UK is taking over half of the global allocation of 54 for the limited edition model.
Each car will be individually numbered and specified to a high standard with satellite navigation and, for the first time on a Peugeot − Digital Radio (DAB).
All cars will also feature a Union Jack flag on the lower grille, signifying the importance of the GTi badge to the UK.
Each car will be numbered from 01 to 29, and will come with exclusive satin pearlescent white paint and 17-inch ‘Carbon’ Onyx Black Alloys.
The 208 GTi is expected to be fitted with Peugeot’s 1.6 THP engine which produces 197bhp and 203lb ft of torque.
Peugeot will confirm further details about the model at the Paris Motor Show tomorrow.
The standard 208 range has had over 11,000 orders in the UK since it went on sale on June 28 this year. Read AM’s review of the Peugeot 208.
