1985 Peugeot 205 Lacoste
A super rare Peugeot 205 Lacoste!!
First owner 27 years.
26,000 genuine miles
Original paintwork in great order
Incredible ‘like new’ interior
Extremely rare car
All original booklets
One for the collector
Recent re-commission totalling almost £2000.00 – Mechanically perfect.
Just how rare is a Lacoste today?
In total over 23,000 Lacoste models were made, that was under 0.5% of the total 5.2 million examples of the 205 built. Now over 30 years later there are very few Lacoste models remaining, some say less than 10 in the UK this is probably correct as DVLA only had 2 registered for road use last year (with ours being one of them) and only 4 sorn.
When you combine the statistics of this, with the condition and mileage of our car, you will clearly see this has got to be a very unique car, and a car/purchase opportunity that will only ever come to market once.
Only 26,000 genuine miles covered from new.
Original owner for 27 years, as detailed below.
This vehicle has been stored for a number of years, and has since had a very thorough service only 400 miles ago to ensure the vehicle is in perfect mechanical order.
All original booklets are with the car, and held in the original wallet.

Body & Paintwork
Incredibly this Lacoste is still wearing its original paintwork, and is in very good order.
The bodywork is showing no signs of any corrosion, and is very straight.
Original pin stripes are still in place, along with original Lacoste logo decals and badges.
The white Lacoste specific trims are all also in very good condition, with no ”yellowing” – still a nice vibrant white.
These trims include the sunroof surrounds, both front and rear bumpers, wing mirrors and wheel trims.
All lights, and glass is very nice.
A very well presented car which would look right at home as part of any collection.
Interior & Trim
A brilliantly retro and French interior, in superb order throughout.
Completely original, and as colourful as Peugeot intended – all the carpets are in superb order, still nice and ‘plump’ and a real vibrant green – no stains or tears.
Seats again are in superb order, the Lacoste specific pattern is vibrant and gives a great retro feel to the car, also extremely comfortable.
All switches and gauges work perfectly, the layout is fantastic and gives a very retro feel when in the car.
This car is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
As you would expect from such a low mileage car, it runs absolutely fantastic.
Also as detailed below, the vehicle has had a full and major service to ensure reliability is maintained.
Coolant flush plus more.
As with the rest of the car, the running gear is all in good order and it drives absolutely fantastic – it really does make you smile.
The 5 speed gearbox is smooth and precise, brakes work very well.
Steering and suspension are all without fault.
Tyres all have plenty of life left in them, wheels are in great order as are the Lacoste specific wheel trims.
