Peugeot has revealed a powered-up version of its perky 208 GTi hot hatch this week, celebrating the performance badge’s 30th birthday.

Set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week, the 208 GTi 30th sees its 1.6 turbo petrol engine tuned to deliver 155kW - up from 147kW in the regular model.

Power is again sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual - but this time there’s also the same Torsen limited-slip differential featured with the bigger and more powerful RCZ R coupe.

Peugeot says all of this will help the special GTi pug punch its way to 0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds, shaving 0.3 seconds off the regular model’s time.

There’s more: along with enhanced steering settings and a 10mm lower suspension package, the 208 GTi 30th also boasts a track that is 22mm wider at the front and 16mm wider at the rear.

The package is rounded out with a stealth black finish to most of the garnishes, along with big 18-inch black wheels, a larger rear spoiler and the same red contrast to the rear that appeared on the recent Exalt and 308 R concepts.

The 208 GTi 30th goes on sale in Europe in November. Frustratingly, Peugeot has confirmed today that we won't see this one in Australia.
