Peugeot 308 GTi in world debut at Goodwood

Peugeot 308 R HYbridPeugeot will host the global debut of the new 308 GTi hot hatch at the 2015 Goodwood Moving Motor Show on 25 June.

The hot new 308 GTi will be the centrepiece of the firm’s Moving Motor Show stand, sitting alongside an European debutant, the 500hp 308 R Hybrid (pictured above).

It’s expected to be powered by the 270hp 1.6-litre turbo four-cylinder engine already seen in the RCZ R – hopefully with that car’s mechanical limited-slip differential as standard too.

A suitably delighted Lord March said: “Since we launched the Moving Motor Show in 2010, it has gone from strength to strength and the fact that major manufacturers like Peugeot are now using it to host global reveals is testament to how far the event has already come.

“The Moving Motor Show is all about giving our visitors the chance to see concepts and premieres ahead of anyone else and it will be marvellous to have the world debut of its new Peugeot 308 Performance here at Goodwood this month.”

Visitors lured by the hot Peugeot allure will be able to act it out on the Goodwood Hill Climb, as the firm’s offering drives of the 208 GTi by Peugeot Sport, plus the ‘warm hatch’ 308 GT 205 THP.

Those of a milder disposition can try out the 308 GT PureTech 1.2.

The sixth annual Moving Motor Show, which was visited by 34,000 people in 2014, will also exhibit some Peugeot racers, to round off the feast Peugeot Sport metal. These will include:

  • 206 T16
  • 208 WRX
  • 2008 DKR

Peugeot will line up alongside 19 other car manufacturers on Thursday 25 June; Goodwood Moving Motor Show tickets are on sale now, priced from £30.
