A superbly original example of a 1.6 205 GTi that has covered only 36,150 miles from new. HISTORY This 205 was first registered in January 1986 to a Foster Benson of Chancery Lane, London. It remained in his ownership until it was purchased by a Mrs Carmel Hurst in 1990 who owned the car until 2011 when the current owner took ownership. Despite the car's modest mileage, it features a comprehensive service history with 12 stamps in the service book; the last being a major service carried out in February at 36,100 miles. EXTERIOR Finished in Alpine White, this GTi is in a great condition with only a couple of minor age related marks visible to the bodywork; this includes some small stone chips to the bonnet and front bumper, a scratch to the nearside rear quarter panel and a couple of other very small marks on the boot. These are only noticeable upon close inspection. This car does not suffer from rust! INTERIOR The interior looks almost as it did when it left the factory in 1986 with no wear to the seats and only a few small marks visible to the red carpets. The steering wheel and plastic trim are immaculate, the clear sports dials operate faultlessly, as does the switchgear. The car benefits from a fully operational sunroof. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION A must drive for any car enthusiast is a factory standard 205 1.6 GTi. This earlier 1.6 litre engine produces 105BHP at 6250 rpm which in a car only weighing 850 KGS, equates as tremendous fun! Having been well maintained by just a few owners this car drives impeccably with a cambelt change, brand new radiator an exhaust installed within the last 2 months. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The original 14” pepper pot alloy wheels have just been refurbished and consequently are in mint condition. All wheels are shod with Michelin tyres and have plenty of tread remaining. The braking system works perfectly and has benefited from a fluid change during the last service in February. www.twclassics.co.uk
