Theme: Special – 1991 Peugeot 205 Colour Line

The year was 1991 and the Peugeot 205 neared the end of production. Time for a special edition.

This is the value end of the special edition spectrum: non-standard upholstery and some stickers. Mechanically, it’s a base model 205 trying to look attractive.

However, the 205 was good regardless of its paint job, one of the true greats of the last 30 years.

Here’s the upholstery:

What this isn’t is the Roland Garros edition which came as a cabriolet or three door hatch. Apart from a Renault 5 Baccara, there is nothing in this class as opulent. Now that was a proper special as the RG versions had a specific colour, specific upholstery and were available as a 106 and 306 too.
