The Background


The Peugeot 106 1.6 GTi was introduced in 1996 and was seen as the spiritual successor to the hugely popular and highly regarded 1980s 205 GTI, which was sadly discontinued in 1994.

Small, light, with a rev happy engine and quick, sharp steering the little hot hatch was well regarded amongst its peers of the time.
In January 1996, the Peugeot 106 also formed the basis for the near identical looks and size Citroën Saxo, with both cars being built on the same platform and both cars competing in various forms of motorsport.

The 106 was later very popular with the Max Power modified generation as it was small, quick and lots of companies produced lots of accessories and body kits for them.

The History


This particular Peugeot 106 was purchased new in 1998 by Lady Felicity Davis. During her ownership the car was used almost entirely by her alone, and driven very sparingly given that she lived in central London.

As time went on, Lady Felicity decided it was time to stop driving and the car spent a number of years parked in her garage.

The car was eventually sold and picked up by the current owner who’s been in possession of the vehicle since 2017. Despite Lady Felicity owning it from new and not driving it very much since 1998, she had kept up with its servicing schedule regardless of miles and the car was always kept in secure dry storage. The current owner has also stuck to this and kept the vehicle in immaculate condition which is commensurate with its incredibly low mileage.

This really is one of if not the cleanest low mileage 106 GTi in the country and deserves to be in a collection.

The Paperwork


The car comes with the V5 Logbook and all of the servicing and paperwork to back up that incredibly low mileage. The car has been owned by two keepers and driven an incredibly small amount but serviced and maintained regardless.

There is a stack of MOTs, an owner's manual, hand book and even an original brochure.

The Interior


The interior of this car is factory fresh. It has a few minor bobbles on the material in the driver’s seat and that is it. It has a recent very expensive detail by a professional detailer and truly is in time warp condition.

Everything works.

The Exterior 


The exterior, like the interior, is in factory fresh condition. The only blemish we could find was on one of the wheels there is a tiny kerb rash. However, the set of wheels you see in the picture is one of two sets the owner has for the vehicle and that will be supplied with it, and one of two style options that were commonly used on the 106 GTi.

The car even has its original dealer stickers.

The Mechanics 


In terms of mechanics the car starts, stops and drives well with the 1.6 16v rev-happy engine having lost none of the horsepower it had from the factory.

The car has been maintained regardless of cost and even though in mileage terms it is no where near requiring a cambelt the current owner has had this work carried out anyway, recently, for peace of mind.

The single only criticism is the engine bay slam panel has some spots on it , but that really is us being picky on what is an incredibly clean original vehicle.

The Appeal


Unlike most small hot hatches of this era, this particular 106 GTi has survived the clutches of the Max Power boy racer generation and is in time warp condition. 

This low mileage , low owner  example is a very rare thing indeed,  and you can be confident that due to its history and the type of owners it has had, it hasn’t seen the wrong side of a hedge like most. We cannot stress how clean this car is.

When it was launched it was cheap, well specced, had enough performance to make you smile and if you were after a small hot hatch of this type, it would definitely have been a consideration.

Today, a lovely example like this is something to treasure and as some may say should really be in a collection. It would be a shame for such a lovely clean example to get damaged after all the love and car that has gone into keeping it the way it should be.

Whoever buys this one, is getting a gem.

About Max Bids

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 10-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

If your bid is below the reserve price you'll bid that amount if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a bid above the reserve we will only go up to the reserve price.
Once the reserve has been met C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000£100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
