French carmakers have a glorious history in building hot mini hatches. Remember the Citroen Saxo VTS and the Peugeot 106 GTi? They had 1.6-liter natural aspired engines and low weight - quite entertaining indeed. Nowadays we only have the Renault Twingo RS, a peppy FWD toy.

We won't be surprised if Peugeot has plans for a GTi version of its cute little 108 city car, that was revealed last week. Sounds like a reasonable future project.

Hungarian graphics manipulator X-Tomi did a rendering of what the hot hatch could look like. If we may suggest, the 1.2-liter THP turbo unit that works in the 308 compact could perfectly fit the super mini.
