Featured on the front cover of 'Extreme Peugeot 306, the definitive guide to modifying', this particular right-hand drive 306 XS 1.6 litre was on static display at the renowned Haynes Motor Museum from June 2003 to October 2009. The very car that Haynes based its manual upon, 'R580 PVC' sports a full Ecosse-Peugeot bodykit finished in a particularly striking shade of Gold, 17-inch 1000 Miglia-branded wheel rims, quad headlamps, and Touring Car-style single wiper and DTM mirrors. The drilled pedals, white-faced instrument dials, Corbeau bucket seats, Safety Devices full-harness seats belts and sports wheel give the smart interior a suitably purposeful air.
The Peugeot's notably impressive specification further includes: K&N air filter and cat-back stainless steel exhaust by J.P. Exhausts of Macclesfield with Peco Back Box; an OMP strut brace and Spax suspension kit; grooved brake discs; Alpine stereo head unit and Sony amplifier; Cat1 alarm and tracker; rust proofing etc. 'R580 PVC' is described by the vendor as being in "very good" condition with regard to its bodywork, engine, and gearbox, while he rates the paintwork and interior trim as "good". This striking-looking 'street fighter' is MOT'd until October 2013.
