So, no, as Paul Horrell correctly pointed out, the 208 has little in common with the 205. Times change, and these days the 205 seems to have closer ties to a Caterham Seven or Lotus Elise than to its own flesh and blood. And yes, £20,000 is a massive sum of money for a ‘toy' car, but ask yourself this of the 208 and 205: in another two decades' time, which do you think will have proved the better investment? Which will have delivered the most fun? You know the answer.
