The Peugeot 206 is a supermini car that was produced by the French manufacturer Peugeot from 1998 to 2010. Even though the 206 had finished production in most markets by 2010, in Europe it was available as the 206+, with front and rear styling that resembles the Peugeot 207, until 2012, whereas in South America it continues to be offered under the 207 nameplate, and furthermore in China, both under the 207 nameplate and as the Citroën C2.
Introduced to the market in 2003, the Peugeot 206 GTi180 and 206 RC brought high performance to the product range. The range topping GTi180 was brought to the UK market, while the 206 RC was introduced to the rest of Europe. The new ‘hot hatch’ used the 2 litre EW10J4S engine, which produced 175 bhp (130 kW; 177 PS) thanks to variable valve timing and modified inlet and exhaust manifolds. Other features on the 206 GTi180 and 206 RC include 17 inch alloy wheels, racing bucket front seats, a short shift gear linkage and altered gearbox ratios (1st & 2nd gears). The new car was capable of reaching 62 mph (100 km/h) in 7.4 seconds.
