Vehicle Information

This stunning 1991 Peugeot 205 GTI 1.6 in sorrento green has covered just 55,711 miles from new.


  • The sorrento green pearlescent paint sparkles in the bright sunlight with an almost flip effect to the paint which reveals a candy green under direct sunlight then changing back to a very dark green under shade. The quality of finish looks as though its been pulled out of the showroom back in 1991. All front and rear lights and lenses are brand new. We have managed to source a set of genuine brand new Siem driving lights which were sourced from a collector!
  • All rubbers are in perfect condition with trim maintaining a deep and correct finish. All windows have matching etchings.
  • To the rear the 205 GTI has had a set of genuine brand new tailgate badges, these also make the car pop!
  • The underside and arches are in a superb condition after receiving a thorough deep clean to protect from the elements, furthermore rust prevention was carried out to protect for the future. The original brake and fuel lines are present, the spare wheel has a brand new matching Pirelli tyre with 1.6 GTI alloy wheel, original jack and boot spanner present. Underside has no accident damage to structures.


  • Quartet velour/leather: Black/green is the interior seat trim with a green tufted carpet, offset against the pearlescent paint this looks extremely attractive.
  • A brand new GTI gear lever has been fitted which sits alongside the GTI steering wheel.
  • The green carpet has been protected by period black Peugeot carpet mats.
  • Headlining, door cards and dash are free from any damage or cracking.
  • The boot area is spotless, while the original parcel shelf is uncut. We have however been unable to source the correct Clarion 97001F cassette radio. In its place is a modern Sony cd player with an aux connection. The search continues!

Engine and Transmission

This included a brand new exhaust system from the manifold back and many other items replaced due to age. A full description is listed with the supplied invoice.

Wheels, Tyres, Brakes and Suspension

  • To finish the look we have managed to source a set of genuine brand new set of front and back mudflaps with matching GTI badges! These were a real struggle to find however we managed to source these from a collector who had a brand new set stored away, they set the GTI of beautifully.
