In the 1970s, Peugeot set out to produce a prestige model powered by a V6 engine. This book traces this saga and lets us discover prestigious models whose technical development has sometimes been laborious.
This book also reveals that this dream of grandeur, that Peugeot has long maintained, culminated in a Peugeot V8 engine. We learn everything from Peugeot and Volvo on this subject, their questions, their hesitations and their discreet abandonment.
On the sidelines of the marketed vehicles, we also remember that these V6 engines stood out in the highest competitions, and greet the three consecutive Peugeot victories (2016, 2017 and 2018) in the most famous rally, the Paris-Dakar.
Comfortable, modern and powerful, this model perfectly embodies the ideal of the middle class.
A true icon of the '60s, it is the first French production car to adopt the injection, able to keep up with its rival, the Citroën DS 19. In this very illustrated book, the entire production up to 1988, with a record of almost three million units.
The book traces the history and evolution of the model through the sporting versions, the special series and the limited models. It describes with great details and photos over fifty different models of 106 and includes sheets of mechanics and body colours.
