It is the first time that the Peugeot 308 GTI has been spotted. It has been seen testing and preparing for what is thought to be a 2014 launch.
At Frankfurt Motor Show it will be previewing a R version of the 308 which will be the top of the range model. It is capable of 274 HP which is a big jump up form the most powerful version on the market today which can only has 155 HP> Th3 308 will be somewhere between the two, probably around the 200HP mark which is likely to be from a 1.6 litre THP mill.
There will not be a major change in look of the new car. The photos show a few minor tweaks with the suspension a little bit lower and a dual exhaust and different fog lights. It is expected that there might be revised bumpers, interior changes and larger alloys coming as well.
