[20 OCT 98] MUSEUM OF BRITISH ROAD TRANSPORT PRESS RELEASE
New Peugeot Launched At City's Museum

The latest car in Coventry’s 102 year manufacturing history is being simultaneously unveiled at the British International Motor Show and at Coventry’s Museum of British Road Transport this week.

Peugeot’s all new 206 which is being built at the company’s Ryton plant in Coventry where right – hand drive versions for sale not only in the UK but also Japan and Australasia will be produced.

The stunning car has already received outstanding reviews in the motoring press and on top of that it looks set to become one of the largest selling cars ever produced in Coventry, if the 35,000 advance enquiries received by Peugeot are anything to go by.

Coventry’s Museum has a long tradition of displaying the very latest models alongside its collections of cars, cycles and motorcycles. The new Peugeot will take pride of place in the main foyer of the Museum.

Colin Lewis, Public Affairs Manager for Peugeot and also the company’s representative on the Museum’s joint Advisory board comments:

"We are particularly delighted to display our latest car in the Museum as it will take pride of place alongside cars which represent Coventry’s proud motoring heritage. This will be a great opportunity for local people to get a first hand look at the car."

The Museum is open 7 days a week from 10.00am until 5.00pm (last admission 4.30pm) and admission is free.
