As you probably know, the Peugeot 205 GTI will always have a special place in the hearts of every motorhead. It has started the hot hatchbacks era and managed to swank the British sports cars. 

The Peugeot 205 GTI is a simple and nimble hot hatch that doesn’t have electronics to keep you safe. But no one thought this car can grab an impressive sum at an auction. This classic Peugeot 205 GTI managed to take £30,938 (about $40,430 / €36,471).

It went under the hammer at the Classic Sale 2016 organized by Silverstone Auctions. It had only 7,986 miles (12,852 km) on the odometer and had the original Silver Metallic paint.
