E.3.1) 205 XS - I

This, my first car, was bought when it was four years old. It had 3,600 miles on the clock, had been serviced four times and still had the original polythene on the rear seats.

At the time there were few cars that could match getting from 50-70 mph in fourth gear in 5.5s.

A change of air filter and re-jetting the carburetor saw 118 hp being generated. 

Hitting a pothole that had been poorly filled in had a 'dramatic effect.
