Wow! Now that's rather special and good to see Peugeot making an effort to preserve its heritage :D

I wonder how they will overcome all the parts now NFP? One hopes they will put them back in production...

Maybe they will offer long NFP parts on the open market for the benefit of all restorers of these iconic vehicles...

They may find there's a greater demand for them than their current offerings!

They wont be as quick as the original non cat` ones, but they will still be desirable, bet they cant make enough to meet demand. Expect a price tag north of £50K ??

I would hope they would sort out the NFP situation on the models that are less than 10 years old first.

I always believed it was law that nothing was allowed to go NFP until the very last models off the line were ten years old...

Or are PSA being a bit naughty in this respect?

There is a steering pipe on my 2010 X7 that was NFP before it reached 10 years old. Contacted CUK to complain & they just told me to use a scrapyard or use google to find one.
Its put me off having another Citroen after this one.
If I remember right the injection ECU for the HPi C5 was NFP when it was only 5 years old as they stopped production of it quite early.

There must be a lot of people with organs, arms and legs to sell too!

Hmm, interesting...

I wonder if they'll start restoring 405 Mi16s one day

I would have thought that the Activa would be next on the list...

That would be awesome!

Speaking of the 205GTi, I saw this very early one on my early morning run today :)
A real early 1.6...
