Spotted in China: Guangzhou-Peugeot 505

The Peogeot 505 sedam was made in China from 1990 to 1997 by the Guangzhou-Peugeot joint venture. The company was founded in 1985 and ended in 1997 with a big fight between the partners.  The joint venture made the 504 pick up, the 505 sedan and the 505 stationwagen. These days the 505 is a very rare sight, I found this one on a parking lot near my home in Beijing.

Sorry for the crappy pic, there was a wall in my way. The 505 was powered by a 4-cylinder with 79kw and 161nm good for a claimed 167km/h top speed. 0-100 took 14 seconds.

The China-made 505 stationwagon. It is still possible to find 505’s on second hand car markets. A very good one will cost around 30.000 yuan, 4600 dollar. Slow depreciation indeed.

These things are even shorter supply now that the drift scene have cottoned onto the fact that they are RWD.

Ash, I hope that the drifting comment was tongue in cheek – it would be too sad.

What’s cool is that the 505 is wearing the same rear wing and taillights as the Argentinian 505 Evolution. I wonder where these parts were developed?
