Peugeot 207CC and GTi

All you 'convertible top' car crazy lovers out there, get ready because the Peugeot 207CC and the GTi is here and it's bound to stay. On March 11, 2007, Peugeot decided on Melbourne, Australia for the sneak preview of their 207CC and the 207 GTi, just days ahead of the Geneva Motor Show.

The 207CC is the successor to their already best selling 206CC, of which 360,000 units were sold globally. This hatchback has a foldaway roof that is fully automatic, and it's made from high quality materials and even has strong security features and offer's a class leading dynamic experience.

Peugeot can definitely claim the honour of producing the world's first-ever convertible which has a metal folding roof with their 402 Eclipse, way back in 1937 when it made its debut at that years Paris Fair. In the modern era, again it was also the Peugeot that really brought hardtop convertible technology within reach of most, with their stylish yet affordable 206CC.

Followed by the 307CC and now the 207CC, Peugeot are once more at the forefront of the trend that they started some 70 years ago.

Another debut is that of the 207 GTi, which continues the line of sporting legends - the 206 and 205 GTi. The 207 GTi inspires a driving sensation to satisfy the enthusiast in everyone, but it's a car that can be enjoyed on an everyday basis.

The 207 GTi features the latest in engine technology, which is their 1.6L THP (Turbo High Pressure) petrol engine with turbo direct injection, that produces 171bhp and an amazing delivery of 240Nm of torque from just 1600rpm. It is the result of a collaboration between PSA Peugeot Citroen and the BMW Group. The same engine powers the top-line MINI.

All seems beautiful and sporty, so I guess it's time now, to go check the price tag ..... ??
