Peugot will be taking the wraps off its newest hot-hatch at Paris: the 207 GT. While anticipation had been building for a road-going production version of the 207 Super 2000 rally car (hinted at with the 207 RCup concept shown at Geneva), the latest information indicates that this will be the range-topper, and that PSA will be dropping the "i" from its traditional GTi moniker.

The engine, co-developed with BMW, will be a 1.6-liter four-banger pumping out a decent 150 hp. Sixty is expected to arrive in 8.1 seconds towards a top speed of 210 km/h (approximately 130 mph). These figures point towards more of a warm hatch than a genuine hot-hatch, and likely won't be able to keep up with rival Renault's Clio 197 Renaultsport.

Three-door hatchback will be the only body-style available, and the 207 GT is expected to include such bells and whistles as stability control, an auto-tinting panoramic glass roof, parking assist and 17-inch rims. The 207 GT will be featured at thre Paris show alongside the 207 EPURE fuel-cell convertible concept.
