Peugeot Australia will mark the end of production of the current 208 GTi range with 20 Édition Définitive models as well as sharp drive-away pricing offers on remaining 208 GTi stock.

The 208 GTi Édition Définitive features a raft of mechanical and visual upgrades over the standard GTi and carries a $33,990 drive-away* recommended retail price.

Bespoke styling starts with Pearl White paint and contrasting Matte Black finishes capped-off with exterior Peugeot Sport badging on the C-pillar. On the inside, the 208 GTi Édition Définitive features Peugeot Sport bucket seats and red ‘Peugeot Sport’-embroidered floor mats.

Under its contrasting Pearl White and Matte Black finish is a bespoke suspension package featuring unique spring and damper rates, wider front and rear tracks and a lower overall ride height.

The 208 GTi Édition Définitive’s greater handling prowess is further enhanced by the adoption of a mechanical Torsen limited-slip differential. 

A Euro 6 emissions-compliant, 1.6-litre THP petrol engine has been tuned to breath easier and symbolically, produces 208bhp (153kW).  

The 208 GTi Édition Définitive also features Autonomous Emergency Braking technology as standard, a first for any GTi model in Australia.  

Managing Director of Peugeot Australia, Anouk Poelmann, said the 208 GTi Édition Définitive celebrates Peugeot’s long performance car history and is the perfect send-off to the current 208 GTi.

“The 208 GTi Édition Définitive will become a collector’s vehicle, much like the 208 GTi 30th Anniversary and the 205 GTi model that paved the way for performance Peugeots almost 35 years ago,” Poelmann said.

“The 208 GTi Édition Définitive is the perfect way to mark the end of production of the current 3-door vehicle for Australia,

“With its outstanding value as well as its mechanical, performance, safety and visual upgrades, we expect the 208 GTi Édition Définitive to be snapped up very quickly,” Poelmann added.

While five-door 208 models will continue to be offered in the market, Peugeot Australia will offer sharp drive-away deals across the Peugeot 208 range with savings of between $2,500 and $4,700 (depending on the model), including the standard 208 GTi, now at $29,990 drive-away.

Incisive on the road 

Using a regular 3-door 208 GTi as the starting point, a bespoke exhaust and engine recalibration was applied to the 1.6-litre, turbo- petrol, four-cylinder engine, increasing responsiveness and driveability across the rev range and delivering a 0-100km/h sprint time of 6.5 seconds, an improvement of 0.3 seconds over the normal 208 GTi. 

To enable drivers to fully exploit the extra performance, a six-speed manual transmission drives the front wheels through the same Torsen limited-slip differential used to such great effect on the 308 GTi 270 and its forebear, the RCZ-R performance coupe. 

The benefits of the differential are felt in corners, enabling the car to hold a tight line during acceleration.

Compared to the regular 208 GTi, the Édition Définitive’s tracks have been widened by 22mm at the front and 16mm at the rear. The suspension has been lowered by 10mm and features new damper settings and spring rates as well as different camber and wheel alignment settings compared to the regular 208 GTi. The matte black 18-inch wheels are half-an-inch wider than those of the regular 208 GTi and shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.

To take advantage of the Torsen limited-slip differential, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and traction control settings have been recalibrated to be less intrusive and the anti-roll bar stiffness reduced.

Similarly, Peugeot Sport’s engineers spent a lot of time on both track and road, calibrating the steering to make the most of the Torsen differential. 

The result is optimised grip and remarkable road holding, along with informative steering that gives a feeling of precision and agility.

To ensure it stops as well as it goes, the 208 GTi Édition Définitive’s braking system has been uprated with meaty 323mm diameter, 28mm-thick discs gripped by red Brembo fixed four-piston callipers featuring ‘Peugeot Sport’ badging. The rear brakes feature grey callipers. 

To save weight, the spare wheel has been replaced with a tyre inflation kit.

Reinforcing the extra go with more ‘show’ 

The regular 208 GTi has a strong visual identity and Peugeot’s designers wanted to build on that. 

Gone is the regular GTi’s bright chrome finish, replaced by matte black on the 208 GTi Édition Définitive. That same matte black treatment is applied to the grille surround, the Cornering Assist fog lamp bezels and door mirror shells. 

From the side, the lowered stance is accentuated by matte black treatments on both the side skirts and the wheel arch extensions used to covering the 18-inch, matte black wheel rims. 

The window trim strips on the rear quarter panels finish-off the package with a signature paying homage to the vehicles builders, Peugeot Sport. 

At the rear, twin circular chrome tail pipes give a sporty look and sound to the car while complimenting its sharp, contrasting Pearl White and Matte Black exterior finish.

The interior has an equally sporty character with front seat passengers enjoying bucket seats specially developed by Peugeot Sport and trimmed in Alcantara with contrasting red stitching and ‘Peugeot Sport’ branding.  

As with other contemporary Peugeot models, the 208 GTi Édition Définitive’s steering wheel is small, enhancing driver sensations. As well, satellite navigation is a standard feature of the car. 

Special red interior mats feature ‘Peugeot Sport’ embroidery. Black door handles sport a fine red line, echoing the seat belt colours.

Édition Définitive safer with Autonomous Emergency Braking

Autonomous Emergency Braking technology, known as Active City Braking, is also offered for the first time on a GTi model. Operating at speeds up to 30km/h, this safety system can avoid an accident or reduce its severity if the driver fails to react. 

City Braking works through a LIDAR-based radar unit mounted on the windscreen ahead of the rear-vision mirror, giving drivers full forward visibility. It detects mobile or fixed objects and then acts on the braking system, providing 10m/s maximum deceleration.

Below 15km/h, Active City Braking allows collisions to be avoided and between 15 and 30km/h it reduces the speed and severity of any impact, reducing overall damage.

Peugeot 208 GTi Édition Définitive is on sale now with a $33,990 drive-away recommended retail price.

Mazda Australia has released an exclusive variant of its much loved roadster, with the launch of 110 Limited Edition MX-5 RF models. With special features and premium equipment added, the Limited Edition MX-5 RF further enhances the driving experience.

Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, says the Limited Edition model rings true to Mazda’s mission with the MX-5.

“The MX-5 has always been a car built for driving and for those who love driving. This model preserves the classic characteristics that we know and love, while adding enhancements that boost the driving feel,” said Bhindi. “The Limited Edition MX-5 RF offers an even more invigorating and exhilarating driving experience, with enviable collectible status to boot.”

Each Limited Edition MX-5 RF model is based on the top grade MX-5 RF GT and equipped with the SKYACTIV-G petrol engine, paired with the six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission. The Kuroi Sports Pack fitted to the Mazda MX-5 RF Limited Edition cars adds modest winglets near the front of the wheel arch openings to direct air away from the wheels and along the sides of the body.

To help the aerodynamics, Mazda engineers have also revised the suspension with a front strut bar linking the under-bonnet suspension towers to increase chassis stiffness. The strut brace is aided by upgraded Bilstein gas-pressurised dampers to improve the car’s already-impressive ride and handling characteristics.

New 17-inch diameter BBS alloy wheels also help sharpen the steering, adding emphasis to MX-5 RF GT’s already-impressive handling. The handling and performance changes are rounded-out with the addition of an upgraded brake package from specialist Italian company Brembo, which enhances stopping power. By adopting Brembo’s opposed-piston, four-pot front brake calipers, Mazda has strengthened the MX-5 RF’s positive braking feel, adding to braking controllability under high-load braking conditions.

Brake cooling performance has been improved by adopting brake discs with circular, pillar-shaped cooling fins which, in conjunction with the use of European-style low-steel brake pads, improves fade resistance by up to 26 per cent. Use of the Brembo braking package also saves almost two kilograms of weight in the front brakes compared to the MX-5’s standard disc brakes.

Inside, the Mazda MX-5 RF Limited Edition gets body-hugging Recaro sports seats for the ultimate blend of sports and luxury. Adding to its collectability, each car also comes with a gift-boxed, custom-made Seiko stainless steel Mazda MX-5 sports chronograph to perfectly fit the active lifestyle of Mazda MX-5 RF Limited Edition owners.

The Limited Edition MX-5 RF will be released for sale in Mazda dealerships throughout the country, with a driveaway price of $55,790.

The Ford Focus RS Limited Edition has been confirmed for the Australian market in what will be one of the most capable, complete hyper hatches ever offered to performance customers locally. The upgrades for the RS Limited Edition are a direct result of customer feedback since the current Focus RS’s launch.

A batch of 500 Focus RS Limited Editions will begin arriving in November 2017, enabled by the strong appetite for the performance hyper hatch since its July 2016 launch. Confirmation of the upgraded version of the Focus RS comes following a raft of media accolades both globally and locally, the most recent coming this week with the RS crowned MOTOR magazine’s 2017 Bang for Your Bucks Champion.

“Ford’s performance models are an important part of our line-up, and we’re excited to offer Australians an even more capable version of the Focus RS, which has struck a chord with driving enthusiasts across the country,” said Ford President and CEO Graeme Whickman. “The RS Limited Edition is a result of enthusiast customer feedback which helped us create the hottest RS yet with 500 units confirmed for Australia,” added Whickman.

The Ford Focus RS Limited Edition package

The Focus RS Limited Edition adds the following benefits above the Focus RS:

  • Quaife limited-slip front differential
  • Performance Wheel Pack including 19-inch forged alloy wheels with 253/35R19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres 
  • Active City Stop (Autonomous Emergency Braking)
  • Recaro shell seats with exclusive Nitrous Blue leather application
  • Nitrous prestige paint
  • Rear hatch-mounted spoiler, mirror caps and roof finished in Absolute Black
  • Privacy glass
  • MLP of $56,990

Quaife Limited-Slip Differential

Every Focus RS Limited Edition is equipped with a Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) as standard to improve the RS’s already highly-praised traction and cornering capabilities. Ford Performance has worked with Quaife, a renowned UK-based engineering outfit, to produce a helical mechanical LSD for the RS’s front axle. Unlike a conventional plate-style limited-slip differential, the Quaife differential relies on gears rather than clutches for its operation. This produces smoother operation and means it will not lock harshly, as it automatically biases the torque away from the spinning wheel, across the axle to a constantly varying degree.

“Our new limited-edition Focus RS represents accessible performance at its finest,” said Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance Chief Engineer. “Improving on the thrilling driving dynamics of the Focus RS is no small task – but our Ford Performance engineers have delivered a drivetrain capable of wringing every drop of performance from the engine,” added Hameedi.

The Quaife differential will be teamed with the Performance Wheel Pack that brings forged alloy wheels, which is a $3,500 option on the regular Focus RS. This includes Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tyres, which are fitted to ultra-high performance models such as the Ferrari 458 Speciale.

In the Driver’s Seat: RS Limited Edition 

Exclusive Recaro shell-seats are standard in the RS Limited Edition, and include a unique Nitrous Blue detail to match the exterior paintwork. In addition, SYNC 3 including voice-activated sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Autoi is standard, with a class-leading 8.0-inch full-colour touchscreen. There is not a single option available to add on the fully-equipped Focus RS Limited Edition, reflecting its hard-core enthusiast raison d'être.

Outside Chance: Limited Edition’s subtle details

The Focus RS Limited Edition is built on the fit-for-purpose no frills mantra of Ford Performance during the vehicle’s development, with minor aesthetic changes designed to maximize the road presence and technical advances of its aerodynamic package. Denoted by a gloss-black roof, mirror caps and rear spoiler, the RS Limited Edition’s visual changes provide sutble cues that the RS Limted Edition is the ultimate example of a contemporary hyper hatch.

Complementing the standard 19-inch forged alloy wheels and stickier rubber, the RS Limited Edition’s black detailing contrasts its Nitrous paintwork to deliver an intelligent package that can more than match its visual promise.

The Focus RS: a hard act to follow

The RS Limited Edition builds on the success of the Focus RS, which arrived in July 2016 after rave reviews from media around the globe. That formula sees the RS Limited Edition continue with the 257kW 2.3-litre EcoBoost powerplant, six-speed manual transmission and Ford Performance AWD.

The sophisticated AWD system enables Dynamic Torque Vectoring, which means that the Focus RS can split its torque not only front-to-rear, but also side-to-side for unprecedented road-holding. The current RS was also the first to offer selectable drive modes that alter steering, engine and exhaust settings, as well as adjustable dampers and Launch Control.

The Ford Focus RS Limited Edition will be offered for a MLP of $56,990 with Australian deliveries commencing in November 2017.

BMW Group Australia is proud to announce local allocations and pricing for the latest in the BMW i8 ‘Protonic’ series. With just five examples of the i8 Protonic Frozen Black Edition, and a solitary i8 Protonic Frozen Yellow Edition, fans of the unique hybrid BMW sportscar have the opportunity to acquire the ultimate in exclusivity.

“The BMW i8 has long been the proof of our commitment to a greener future, without compromising on performance,” said BMW Group Australia CEO, Marc Werner. “Now the latest Protonic Frozen Black and Frozen Yellow Editions provide additional collector appeal, with a focus on high luxury and exclusivity,” he said.

BMW i8 pricing - $303,300

Exterior set to turn even more heads

Highlighted by a choice of matte Frozen Black or Frozen Yellow BMW Individual paint finishes with Frozen Grey metallic accents, the latest i8 Protonic Editions offer an unrivalled sense of occasion. Both variants ride on matte-finish 20-inch BMW i light alloy wheels with distinctive W-spoke styling.

Bespoke trims offer additional interior ambience

Lifting the dihedral door reveals a model-specific door sill identifier and ‘Spheric’ seats trimmed in high-end dark Amido leather with contrasting grey seat belts and embossed i8 logos integrated into the headrests. Premium cloth inserts in combined Amido/Yellow with woven yellow and anthracite stitching brighten the cabin, while the roofliner is also finished in soft anthracite.

Following the theme, yellow stitching is used on the lower instrument panel, door panels and side trims, while luxurious floor mats are piped in black leather with yellow highlights. A black ceramic finish is used for the gearshift lever and central console section, while carbon fibre interior trims create a tangible link with the i8’s innovative carbon fibre construction. An engraved i8 logo on the console-mounted iDrive controller offers a final flourish.

BMW i8 Overview

The BMW i8 was conceived as a plug-in-hybrid sports car from the start, designed to offer strong performance, agile handling and outstanding efficiency. This concept starts from within. Made of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic, the i8’s passenger cell offers safety and rigidity while staying true to the vehicle’s light weight philosophy.

BMW’s advanced eDrive system highlights the i8’s sustainable performance focus. An efficient yet powerful 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine produces 170kW of power and 320Nm of torque. The combustion engine works with a 96kW/250Nm synchronous electric motor that drives the front axle. Combined power and torque outputs are 266kW/570Nm, yet fuel consumption is only 2.1L/100 on the combined cycle.

Supported by a 7.1kWh (5kWh useable) lithium-ion battery pack, the electric motor’s output can be used to power the vehicle for up to 31km on pure electric power, at speeds of up to 120km/h. The electric motor also provides a boost function that enables the all-wheel drive BMW i8 to accelerate to 100km/h from rest in just 4.4 seconds.

Situated low in a central position, the BMW i8’s battery pack is mounted to enable a very low centre of gravity. At 460mm from the ground, the centre of gravity is the lowest among current BMW Group models and ensures near 50:50 weight distribution.

The BMW i8’s battery pack can be recharged via a conventional household power socket, or at a public charging station. Owners also have the option of installing a BMW i Wallbox at their home or office, offering maximum convenience.

The 2017 Honda HR-V Limited Edition offers customers $3,600 worth of additional style and convenience features for a small $1,425 price premium over the regular HR-V VTi on which it is based. The list of customer-focused enhancements fitted to the new HR-V Limited Edition includes:

  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Side steps
  • Smart keyless entry
  • Push button start
  • Roof rails

The 2017 Honda HR-V Limited Edition is based on the VTi grade and is available nationally for a drive away price of $28,990*.

“Honda’s limited edition models have proven to be a popular addition to our regular offers, particularly for customers who are cross-shopping against other brands and looking for a great deal,” Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins said. “In the competitive Small SUV segment, the Honda HR-V Limited Edition outpoints its key rivals with a set of higher value-for-money features they simply can’t match, on top of the recent 2017 Year Model update that added satellite navigation as standard equipment on all HR-V variants.

“So we’re confident this new model will enable Honda to compete aggressively and maintain the HR-V’s sales momentum throughout 2017.”

The 2017 Honda HR-V Limited Edition is available in four exterior paint colours – Morpho Blue and White Orchid (both pearlescent), Lunar Silver and Modern Steel (both metallic). The Honda HR-V continues to be one of the most popular models in Honda’s line-up. Since its launch in February 2015, Honda has sold more than 28,000 HR-Vs and it has become the company’s biggest seller.

Collins said almost the entire Honda product portfolio would be refreshed or completely new by the end of 2017. “The 18-month period up until the end of this year represents the biggest product onslaught in Honda’s history in Australia.

“We’ve just launched the Civic hatch, next is the all-new CR-V with VTEC Turbo power and in a few months we’ll cap off the Civic range with the arrival of the eagerly anticipated, high-performance Civic Type R. This comes on top of product actions to the Accord, City and Odyssey since mid-2016, the major model introductions of Civic sedan and the NSX hybrid supercar, and we’ve still got more to come before this year is over.”

All Honda vehicles are covered by a 3-year, 100,000 km warranty, 6-year rust perforation warranty and a 3-year paint warranty.

Holden has honoured its local legacy whilst celebrating its future in Australian motorsport, unveiling three very special new Limited Edition Commodores alongside the inaugural reveal of the new 2017 Red Bull Holden Racing Team Supercars.

The three new Limited Edition Commodores, created as a result of a secret skunkworks type project, add sophisticated, track-focused driving technology to the already impressive 6.2-litre LS3 V8 engine, to produce the most capable Commodores ever.

Named in honour of an illustrious history in Australian motoring and in celebration of the people that have contributed so much to Commodore’s success over the years, the SS-V Redline based Motorsport Edition and Calais V based Director take performance and luxury to a higher plane, while the SS-V Redline ute based Magnum explores the unique ability of ‘Australia’s own sports car’.

Holden’s Limited Editions Lead Development Engineer, Daniel Pinnuck, said the three Limited Editions used additional technology to squeeze even greater performance from Commodore and position one of Australia’s favourite vehicles as the most capable in General Motors globally.

“Motorsport Edition, Director and Magnum have developed from a Holden team passion project into road-going homages to our people and our rich heritage. They blend performance and technology to create the most capable Commodores we’ve ever built,” said Pinnuck.

“We had a great base with the 6.2-litre LS3 V8 engine but the addition of a Holden developed driver mode control system, featuring Magnetic Ride ControlTM*, adaptive suspension, for the sedans and the introduction of our track-focused FE3 suspension for the ute, have given these cars even more to offer.

“We’ve also developed engine and transmission cooling packages to meet ‘GM level 3’ track performance, meaning Commodore now joins the likes of Corvette, Camaro and Cadillac CTS as among the most track-capable General Motors vehicles”, among the most track-capable General Motors vehicles”.

High-Value Sports Enhancements

Leveraging the wealth of knowledge and content used in the global Zeta vehicle program, including on Camaro and Chevrolet SS, Holden engineers have employed 3.25kg lighter ‘floating disc’ front and rear cross-drilled rotors, an engine and transmission cooling package and 20-inch split wheels and tyres, ensuring the three Limited Editions are as unique under the skin as on the surface.

Sedan models, Motorsport Edition and Director, come with a driver mode control system including the first Holden badged Magnetic Ride ControlTM, system which, using three distinct settings (Tour, Sport and Performance), gives drivers the options to switch between different suspension tunes depending on the scenario.

The Magnetic Ride ControlTM*, system employs a suspension position sensors on each corner of the vehicle to read road conditions and adjust dampers up to 100 times a second to ultimately give drivers greater ride comfort and superior handling.

Motorsport Edition takes track performance to another level with the use of a high-rate subframe bush to improve driver confidence under maximum lateral and braking events.

Also with a focus on performance, Magnum now packs the same FE3 rear suspension tune seen on the SS-V Redline sedan, further moving the sports ute into track territory rather than workhorse.
