Remember Peugeot's brilliant 205 GTI commercial from 1986? Of course you do! And now that there's a new GTI, here comes the new ad that puts James Bond to shame with more rockets and more Apache action. Plus the new GTI.
France, it turns out, has more to offer the world than just being the butt of jokes about surrendering and socialism. They've also done hot hatches as well as anyone else. Sadly, we Americans seldom get them, but I'd love to start with the new Peugeot 208 GTI hatchback.
For various reasons, the automotive powers that be keep many of the world's best cars from the American car buying public. Even Detroit is stiffing us on some of these models, and they're supposed to be on our side!
