Hi and welcome to our first 2016 newsletter. So much has happened since out last edition and most of it was of the wet and windy variety! 2016 has got off to such a good start for the Peugeot Marque, including and exciting Dakar 2016 victory for the 2008 DKR. You will find a report and video in this edition. As well as the 2008 victory, we have news of the exciting New Peugeot Traveller, that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March., But you won’t have to wait that long as we have some early images of it. Further news will follow in the coming months.

I would like to thank Motoring Journalist Gareth Butterfield, for letting us use his independent review of the 208 GTi. Gareth was a big fan of the 205 Gti, and was keen to compare the two cars. Finally I would once again like to thank you for helping us to archive Peugeot’s highest dealer award, Guild of Gold status. Your customer feedback helps determine the top dealers in the country and I guess you must like us! Until next time….

RECONNECTING WITH ADOLESCENCE With Gareth Butterfield & The


Motoring Journalist Gareth Butterfield has a passion for cars. As a previous owner of the award winning 205 Gti, he was excited at the prospect of a week getting to know The New Peugeot 208 GTi DAY ONE I MUST admit I’m fairly excited about spending a week in the Peugeot 208 GTi. It’s been around for quite a while now and has won high praise among motoring journalists for putting the spark back into the French firm’s hot hatch range. I have fond memories of its greatgrandfather, the 205 GTI which is now something of a 1980's icon. The models that followed succeeded in their own right, but the hot ones never quite matched the sparkle of the original, wild and raucous 205 that really did set pulses racing. I’ve read a lot about the 208 GTi’s welcome return to that form and, while it hardly feels like a back-tobasics car as I climb inside the beautifully appointed and very upmarket interior, there are some wonderfully sporty touches. Take the red leather stripe at the top of the beautifully-sculpted steering wheel. Any car geek will

know this pays homage to a piece of insulating tape. Utterly pointless but completely exciting. It’s one of many little red “bits” I find as I look around the cabin, bearing the sort of smiling, exploring gaze, a six-year-old has when he’s just set eyes on the mountain bike he got for Christmas. And these red bits remind me of the 205. It might be a million miles away in terms of technology and build quality from the 80's hot hatch I fell in love with as a child, but the designers definitely had a picture of it on their desk when they penned this new car. DAY TWO MY first journey in the 208 GTi is a drive home on a familiar road with its familiar bends and undulations and it doesn’t take long to realise the car’s intentions. Not that the standard 208 is a dull thing to drive, but the GTi is incredibly sharp, willing and visceral. Oh, and then there’s the engine. It’s a heavily tweaked version of the 1.6 lump found in lesser models and the wonderful little Citroen DS3.


A meaty turbo gives it 200bhp and a big exhaust gives it a sporty, purposeful note. If I’m honest, I was expecting something even more raucous. It’s almost as if there’s been some regulations preventing this car from being genuinely bonkers. But it’s quick. Oh, yes, it’s quick. And it’s not just quick, either. It corners like it’s stuck to the road with glue. Its embarrassingly large gear nob is taking some getting used to but the change is positive and short and the comically small steering wheel needs very few turns to lock it over on tight bends. Oh, this is fun. DAY THREE TODAY the wife and I are going to see some friends in Yorkshire, so we’ve got to take the 208 out of its familiar territory in the rural back roads and spend a bit of time on the motorways. We’re staying overnight, so her ladyship needs many suitcases and these fit in the 208’s boot surprisingly well. The boot is the same as the standard 208's and it’s nice and deep. There’s even

plenty of room in the rear seats which is good, because this car is only available as a three-door model. The car rides well on the M1. I’ve got plenty of gadgets to keep me interested, an excellent stereo, a good infotainment system with a simple and effective sat nav and allimportant cruise control. But there’s something niggling at me. At first, it really is a niggle, nothing more, but after an hour of driving, towards the M18, I realise the exhaust note is doing my head in. Confession time… As a youngster I once added a big sporty exhaust to my Fiat Uno. It made it ridiculously loud and I loved it. The Peugeot’s exhaust is nowhere near as loud as that, but it is quite “sporty” and the constant boom has become quite tiresome. DAY FOUR We’re taking our friends out for a ride in the 208. They’re both into their cars and seem impressed by the upmarket feel of the

interior. However, the ride, apparently, is a little too firm in the back. I tried to explain that this was because of the standard 208’s spring rates being increased by around 20 per per cent, along with


thicker and firmer dampers being fitted but neither my wife nor my friends wife could hear me over the exhaust. From the front, my friend and I think the ride is pretty good. We also like the exhaust note and the way the car comes alive at the top of the rev-range, with the turbo kicking in to give it a brutal shove before each gear change. It was a short-lived burst of enjoyment, however, as the pair of now marginally deaf spouses in the rear seats were starting to feel a bit sick. Time to head home. If anything, my friends seem under whelmed. They point out the slightly fussy

styling, the way the fusebox ruins any chance of putting things in the glove box and that boomy exhaust. Philistines. That said, as soon as we turned off the M6 and got onto the Yorkshire back-roads the car simply came alive again. Phew, for a moment there I thought I was getting old! DAY FIVE IT’S back to work today and back to what the 208 GTi does best. Relieving frustration on a stretch of rural blacktop. I’m frustrated, by the way, because the wife doesn’t like it. That’s odd because, it’s orange – her favourite colour – it’s petrol, which is the only fuel she will acknowledge the existence of and it’s sporty. The only type of car she really likes.

Later that day she’s heading out to see some friends and I throw her the keys to the Peugeot. A few hours later she returns, absolutely buzzing. Seriously, I was almost late for work the next day because of the time she spent explaining how brilliant the car felt on the limit and how pin-sharp the steering is and how eager the turbo-charged engine is to help the car head butt the horizon. And then it dawns on me. To really appreciate it you’ve got to drive it. Its flaws are few and far between, but its strengths are unlocked when you take it by the scruff of its neck and give it some punishment. It is, honestly, quite brilliant.

“In all the ways that matter, it’s absolutely brilliant”


DAY SIX AFTER a bit more larking around on my way to work I’m reminded of some of the more mundane things I have to think about when testing a car. Let’s start with fuel economy. I’ve been achieving low 30's when I’m not behaving, and high-30's when I was behaving. Yesterday, during a stint following a tipper-lorry on an A-road I coaxed it to 42 MPG. I really was trying, but it’s not bad for a car tuned to such an extent.

He (and his car) looked like a naughty school boy that hadn’t grown up. As good as the Fiesta is, it’s always going to give the wrong impression.

For a car with 208bhp on tap, it puts out a frankly rather impressive 125g/km of CO2 as well, which certainly impresses me. And, if you really need to ask, GTi ownership starts at a shade under £20,000.

In fact, if it was my money, if I had to choose between the two, I’d pick the Pug. To be honest, the Ford’s handling is slightly better and there are still aspects of the GTi which bother me, but it’s just more my cup of tea.

DAY SEVEN ON my way to work today a Ford Fiesta ST passes in the opposite direction. I’m reminded of how good that car is to drive and the fact it costs a little less than the Peugeot. But the guy behind the wheel looked like a Ford driver.

Whereas my Peugeot really has grown up. It’s matured and got through its problemchild phase and is now good at many things. I’m not saying it’s matured to the point where it will only be seen in corduroy trousers, but it’s way past the shellsuit phase the Ford seems to be stuck in.

It’s fun but in a grown up way. And, by the same token, it’s grown up but has a healthy dose of excitement ready to be let out. In all the ways that matter, it’s absolutely brilliant. You can read more of Gareth’s reviews by clicking this link.

utch born Arthur Benjamins' desire to become a racing driver never materialised. Instead, he found it more fulfilling to depict than to drive them. In 1973, one of his first exhibitions was in a Rotterdam Ford showroom during a publicity day where he would meet reigning F1 World champion Jackie Stewart, various Dutch and Belgian racing drivers. Also present was an equally young Arie Luyendyk, who would go on to win the Indy 500 twice. Benjamins moved to London in 1974, from where he established himself as one of the leading motor racing artists.


H

is work was featured in countless UK and foreign newspaper and magazine articles, book illustrations and covers, fine art prints and several television features, including a 5 minutes feature in the “Top Gear� series in 1987. In 1998, his one-man show on Jersey Channel Island was officially opened by F-1 team owner, Eddie Jordan. Benjamins has exhibited extensively in the UK, Holland, Venice and even Malta. His fine art prints continue to sell worldwide. He pioneered the use of Photorealism within motor racing art, a painting style hitherto never associated with this sport. His paintings reflected all the colour, speed and excitement in a manner not exhibited before and it spawned a whole new spate of general motoring artists. In late 2013, Benjamins moved to Phoenix, Arizona from where he would continue to springboard a whole new style of Neoplasticism – a painting movement which had lain quiet since 1944. He would also change his motoring style to a more graphic genre and continue to have a spate of exhibitions in Arizona, California and Colorado. In the relatively short time he has been in the USA, his work is already beginning to attract a serious and dedicated following.

PEUGEOT 205 GTi THE ‘GREATEST EVER HOT HATCH’ The ‘Greatest Ever Hot Hatch’ was unveiled by triple BTCC Champion Matt Neal at the Performance Car Show following a comprehensive selection and reader voting contest, revealing the overwhelming winner was … the giant-beating Peugeot 205 GTi. The top-ten finalists were displayed as part of new ‘Hot Hatch Nirvana’ display at the Performance Car Show which is part of Autosport International, held at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) in Birmingham between the 14th and 17th January. A must-see display called ‘Evolution of the Hot Hatch’ features an unrivalled collection of iconic

cars that have come to define and evolve the genre over decades. Hot hatches hold a special place in the hearts of many, and the Performance Car Show is presented by Landsail Tyres in association with Autocar and PistonHeads.com. Following a global poll, the Peugeot 205 GTi emerged as the winner and was duly crowned the ‘Greatest Ever Hot Hatch’. The 205 GTi saw off some of the most popular hatches of all time to claim the accolade, having been part of a shortlist of 50. This shortlist was drawn up by a group of renowned automotive experts from two of the UK’s most respected and notable motoring titles.

Autocar’s Editor-in-Chief, Steve Cropley and Road Test Editor, Matt Prior, Piston Heads Editor, Dan Trent as well as Autocar Contributing Editor and overall curator, Richard Bremner came together to compile the list of contenders, which then went to a public vote. The final top 10 features some of the most iconic and desired cars of the last four decades. The Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evolution 1 finished as a worthy runner up to the 205 GTi, while the most recognised Ford Escort of all time – the RS Cosworth from the mid-1990s – completed a prestigious podium.

“The Peugeot 205 GTi was unbeatable for its sheer rev-happy, go-hard verve and subtly perfect styling. Lightning-quick gearshifts, urgent power delivery, blade-sharp steering and deliciously driftable handling made the 205 an overnight hot hatch king” Hot Hatch Nirvana curator Richard Bremner

PEUGEOT 2008 DKR WINS DAKAR 2016

“Some 26 years after its previous success on the epic event, Peugeot has won the Dakar Rally for the fifth time in the French marque’s history. The two-wheel drive Peugeot 2008 DKR has triumphed with its most illustrious crew on the event: Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret”


T

his victory is the latest chapter in a compelling story of motorsport success for Peugeot, which includes four Dakar wins in Africa between 1987 and 1990, as well as success in various other events that include the Le Mans 24 Hours, Pikes Peak and the World Rally Championship. This win will go down in history for PEUGEOT, which triumphed at only its second participation in South America. A total of three PEUGEOT 2008 DKRs reached the finish ramp.

An overall result like this would never have been possible without all the team members helping each other, or without those real heroes in the shadows: the indefatigable mechanics. Cyril Despres, who drove an excellent rally in only his second participation on four wheels and contributed to one of Peugeot’s seven onetwos, also became a guardian angel for his team mates, helping them out of trouble on more than one occasion. These made for powerful images, which have contributed to the Dakar’s

legend of sportsmanship and fraternity. The duo of Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret in the number 302 PEUGEOT 2008 DKR called upon all of their experience to seal another win at the finish ramp in Rosario. This is not only their sixth win together, but the 12th win in total for Peterhansel – a six-time Dakar motorbike winner – 25 years after his debut triumph. The Frenchman has further extended his winning record and ensured that his status as ‘Mr Dakar’ is beyond doubt. Continued.


Three of the four Peugeot 2008 DKRs entered have reached the finish. Carlos Sainz and Lucas Cruz were the leaders with just four days to go, but were not able to join their team mates on the finish ramp – having made a key contribution however to the result.

Peugeot has won the Dakar on just its second participation in the South American event. The 2008 DKRs claimed nine stage wins out of a possible 12, including seven one-twos and two one-two-threes.


A CRACK TEAM With a 9500-kilometre route in two weeks through Argentina and Bolivia, taking in extremes of weather and altitudes that peaked at 4800 metres, Team Peugeot Total took on a fearsome challenge with one of the most accomplished line-ups ever seen in Dakar history. With 17 Dakar victories between them, the crews of Stéphane Peterhansel/Jean-Paul Cottret, Carlos Sainz/Lucas Cruz and Cyril Despres/David Castera were joined by nine-time world rally champions Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena, making their debut on the event. A TECHNICAL CHALLENGE All the crews gave it their best shot at the wheel of the PEUGEOT 2008 DKR. Peugeot’s engineers learned several valuable lessons during their first participation in South America last year, and worked non-stop ever since to improve the car. Lower, wider, longer and more powerful, the new PEUGEOT 2008 DKR didn’t take long to show the extent of its potential. The car kept faith with its two-wheel drive configuration against the traditional 4x4s, and was instantly at ease on every type of surface, underlining the effectiveness of the technical choices that were originally made. TWO WEEKS OF UPS AND DOWNS The Team Peugeot Total crews claimed the lead of the rally right from the first proper special stage. Using all of his traditional rallying expertise, Sébastien Loeb was the first to claim a stage win, and by the time the rally reached the rest day at Salta, following some challenging stages at high altitude in Bolivia, the top-three line-up consisted of Loeb, Peterhansel and Sainz. The second week of the rally offered further adventures with a more varied route and both Sebastien Loeb and Carlos Sainz bid farewell to their hopes of victory, because of a roll and a mechanical breakage on stage 10 respectively. Cyril Despres had already been delayed on stage five so it was Stéphane Peterhansel who emerged as Team Peugeot Total’s main contender for victory. The Frenchman seized the advantage on the 10th of 13 stages, with a cushion of one hour at the head of the field. He then just had to manage that advantage all the way to the finish.
