Peugeot launched the 405 in July 1987 and it made its way to the United Kingdom and America the following year. When it launched, the compact sedan was an instant hit, winning the European Car of the Year award with the largest number of votes in the contest’s history.
Part of the reason why the car was such a hit was its styling. The car was styled by Pininfarina who also designed the Alfa Romeo 164 that launched around the same time. It also shared the bottom plate with the Citroën BX, however, it did not feature the hydropneumatic suspension of its French cousin.
While the 405 range was mostly filled with sensible family cars, there was one model that was a bit different. This car was of course the 405 Mi16 that was first introduced into the United Kingdom and other areas in July 1988.
The 405 Mi16 was made in very much the same way as the 205 GTi, but bigger and more comfortable. It featured an absolutely sublime 1.9-litre four-cylinder engine that produced as much as 158 horsepower (118 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 181 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque at 5,000 rpm.
Along with the incredible new 1.9-litre engine, the car was given anti-lock brakes as standard, stiffer suspension and five-spoke alloy wheels. The overall ride height was reduced by 10 mm at the front and 15 mm at the rear, and the alloy wheels were wrapped in ‘V’-rated 195/60 tyres.
While the Mi16 retained the conservative styling of the standard 405, it did feature a few exterior changes. There was a new raised spoiler on the boot, new front and rear bumpers with the former sporting rectangular fog lamps, and deep cladding at the side. The final touches being the signature 405 Mi16 LeMans front grille decals in the iconic Peugeot Rally sport colours, matching side pin stripes and rear decal around the badge.
