Peugeot Australia has introduced a limited-edition variant of its 308 GTi hot hatch, with the aptly named Sport now on sale from $42,990 plus on-road costs – $3000 less than the full-time model.
The Sport adds a front spoiler, extensions for the side skirts and rear bumper corners, and a rear diffuser and gurney flap, and metallic paintwork (Perla Nera Black, Artense Grey or Magnetic Blue), which represent a claimed $3500 of extra value in addition to the price reduction.
This package also includes a complementary $200 driver training course held by Driving Dynamics. While these are currently only held in Melbourne, they will soon expand to Sydney, Adelaide, Queensland and Western Australia.
At the rear of the Sport is a diffuser and gurney flap.
However, buyers keen on the Sport’s additional equipment, sharper pricing and free driver training should get in quick as it is limited to just 20 examples.
No other upgrades are included with the Sport, meaning it's motivated by the standard 308 GTi’s 200kW/330Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine.
As a result, the 1205kg Sport can sprint from standstill to 100km/h in a claimed 6.0 seconds.
It is exclusively mated to a six-speed manual transmission that sends drive to the front wheels. This set-up is paired with a Torsen limited-slip differential.
